Pilgrimage to Huntington Library
By Dick and Sue Streeper, email@example.com
The much-anticipated rose pilgrimage to the Huntington is finally available to the first fifty “pilgrims” to sign up. Put the date, May 11, on your calendar and send your check soon to reserve your place.
The date will be a perfect one to see the roses at their best. Additionally, May 11 is Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend, an ideal day to do something special for the mother or wife in your life. Tom Carruth, previously hybridizer for Weeks Roses and now curator of roses at the Huntington, will lead the group through the rose plantings. Lunch will be provided and there will be plenty of time to explore the other Huntington gardens, museums, and the library on your own.
Here are the details of the day:
7:30 a.m. Load Goldfield Stage bus at Old Town Transit Center
8:00 a.m. Leave San Diego
10:30 a.m. Arrive Huntington Library in San Marino
10:30 to noon—Tour roses with Tom Carruth
12:00 to 1:00—Box lunches in Huntington Café
1:00 to 3:00—Tour grounds and gardens on your own
3:15 Leave Huntington
6:00 Arrive San Diego
Now is the time to send in your check which becomes your reservation. The check for $60 should be made out to the San Diego Rose Society and sent to San Diego Rose Society, P.O. Box 86124, San Diego CA 92138-6124. The fee includes round-trip bus fare, entry ticket to the Huntington, box lunch (sandwich or salad, fruit cup, chips, drink, and cookie), and tour with Tom Carruth. It is likely that the trip will sell out, so do not delay.
