Voting in the American Rose Society Triennial Election ran from June 1st to noon Central Time, July 31st. The winner of the race for National Vice President is San Diego Rose Society member and Past President, Robert B. "Bob" Martin Jr! Click the link above to learn more about Bob.

Meanwhile, Bob, who is known for a rather unique sense of humor, was asked by a friend what a Rose Minion Vice President would look like. So being accommodating, he replaced his yellow knit long sleeved shirt with a yellow dress shirt and his best yellow rose tie! Noting that Bob, the little minion, generally carries his teddy bear with him, Rose Bob produced his very own 70 year old teddy bear, "Cubby", to accompany him!
