Secretary, Jan Newburgh - Janet has been gardening since she was 9 years old. Among her fondest early memories were watching her grandmother start rose cuttings under mason jars, and the huge, beautiful red roses that her mother grew. Janet moved to Tallahassee from Maryland in 2008 and has participated in Leon County’s Master Gardener Program. The Tallahassee Area Rose Society first came to Janet’s attention through its annual rose show, held in October of each year. She is especially interested in yellow roses of all types. Janet has found TARS members to be extremely supportive and generous in their time to help people learn how to grow the most beautiful roses.

Treasurer, Mary Maud Sharpe - I’ve been a member of TARS for many years and each year I realize how much I’ve learned from others about roses! People I would have never known otherwise. The love of roses is our common purpose and you will find that there are many other ways to make new and keep old friends. I find it priceless!

Board Member, Hank Rosen

Board Member, Bob Schelhorn - I just like to grow stuff. I always have. I'm good at it. I have green thumbs and green toes. I have herbs, ferns, cacti, bountiful citrus and peach trees. Oh yeah, 36 kick-ass hybrid tea rose bushes. I like stuff that produces and blooms and survives our week long winter. Happy gardening.

Board Member, Marion Nimis, Past President - Marion was TARS president from 2014-2016. Marion is from London, England. She's loved roses since she was young, watching her father pruning and fussing over his roses. Marion began buying old country roses from Goodwood 14 years ago and now it's rather out of hand.
