Lodi Centennial Celebration: 1906-2006

100 Centennial Roses at Hutchins Street Square

In recognition of the City of Lodi’s centennial anniversary, the Hutchins Street Square Foundation Board will plant 100 red roses on the Square, Wednesday, March 1, 2006 at 4 p.m.

The rose, a floribunda called preference, is mildew and disease resistant to keep maintenance requirements low. The bush will flower for months on end adding to the landscape elements of the Square.

Volunteers are encouraged to join members of the Foundation to help plant; the only requirement is to bring your own shovel. Workers need to report to the west side of the Square, just behind Camp Hutchins. The Foundation will serve hot dogs and soda following the planting effort. It is expected we will have our local rose club experts on hand to advise and support novice planters. For more information please contact the Square at 333-6782.
