NRS Monthly Meeting Calendar

The Nashville Rose Society Programming Committee, led by John Wendler, has been working hard to plan the 2023 monthly meeting calendar. The programs are subject to change, but save the dates. You do not want to miss one!

All 2023 monthly meetings will be held at Cheekwood Estates and Gardens, in either the Frist Learning Center or the Massey Auditorium.

This year’s meetings will be organized somewhat differently from past years. Each meeting will be organized and led by a member of the NRS Executive Committee, one of our Consulting Rosarians, or a member of the Programming Committee. To date, we have volunteers for nine out of ten of the meetings. .
