The Del Mar Rose Society, working together with Community Connections and The Winston School will be making and delivering beautiful and fragrant rose bouquets for local residents this Thanksgiving. A tradition born over a decade ago from the home of Dwyn Robbie, the event has blossomed into a festive gathering each year at the Powerhouse Community Center, prior to the holiday for Rose Society members. Del Mar Rose Society Chairs for the project, Kristen Druker and Hilde Koessler are working closely with Heather Glenn of Community Connections and Ellen Soldinger of the Winston School to make sure that lovely garden roses grace tables of Community Connections members that Glenn specifies. The Winston School contributes by making hand painted tags wishing recipients a Happy Thanksgiving from the three community groups involved. For Del Mar Rose Society members it has become an anticipated annual event and a labor of love.
