December 11 , 6-8:00pm – NRS Christmas Party

Enjoy the holiday spirit with your fellow Rose Society members and guests at the 2022 Nashville Rose Society Christmas Party! The party will be held on Sunday, December 11, from 6:00 – 8:00pm at Belmont University. NRS will provide turkey, ham, rolls and drinks, and dinnerware; members are asked to bring their favorite dish.

There is also a gift exchange if you would like to be a part of it. Bring a gift costing no more than $20 suitable for a man or a woman. We will be entertained by the Belmont student who played the piano for us last year.

The party will be held in Belmont’s Ayers Academic Center, rooms C and D (the same rooms as our last Belmont meeting).

Please see Marty’s email for more information on the gift exchange and RSVP by Monday, Dec. 5 if you plan to attend.

Parking: The Ayers Academic Center is located 1515 Wedgewood Avenue at the corner of Wedgewood and 15th avenues. Turn into the short drive labeled “Inman Center” and then left into the Ayers parking garage. There are two elevator banks in the garage underneath the Ayers Academic Center – the South and North elevators. Members should park by, then use, the North elevators to the 4th floor. These open up directly across from our meeting room – which is Ayers C & D. It is not easy to find the meeting room from the South elevators!
