2019 NRS Rose Show Results – And the winners are…

2019 NRS Rose Show entries
The Nashville Rose Society 2019 Rose Show was held on Saturday, September 28, and Sunday, September 29, at the Belmont University Gabhart Student Center, 2002 Belmont Blvd., Nashville, Tennessee.

The show was one of the most successful Annual Rose Shows in recent memory and, according to some members who have exhibited at NRS Rose Shows for 20+ years, perhaps ever! We had 35 exhibitors in total, including a few new exhibitors from as far away as Montgomery, AL.

Traffic at the Show was incredible – between the two days, we had over 300 people visit our Show. No one can remember an NRS Rose Show where attendance was that high. The venue at Belmont was ideal and the support we received from the Belmont staff was simply terrific.

“Ron and I wanted to thank all those who exhibited, particularly those who entered the Show for the first or second time. Also, a shout out to the Show Committee for all the time and detail work associated with staging a successful Rose Show. Finally, a special thanks to everyone who volunteered to work at the Show as well as all the members – and spouses in some instances – who showed up on Friday to set up the Show and on Sunday afternoon to break it down. We had close to 30 people on Sunday afternoon, pitching in to do whatever was needed to move all our stuff out of the Gabhart Student Center and back into storage. Larry Baird said the break down was done in record time because of all the people who came to help.”, said John Wendler, Co-President of the Nashville Rose Society.
