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.
