Our meetings are held at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 5001 Hixson Pike, Hixson, TN 37343.  The entrance to the church is right across from the Northgate Mall entrance on Hixson Pike.  From Highway 153, get on Hixson Pike North.  Turn left onto Trinity Drive.  The church will be on the right.  Proceed up the church driveway to the church parking lot.  Park in front of the church and come in the rear entrance.  There will be someone at the door to direct you.   

This is a great location with lots of parking and no steps.  There is even a covered area at the entrance to use in case the weather is rainy.

Regular monthly meetings are held the fourth Thursday of every month except May (our annual picnic), November (Thanksgiving) and December (annual banquet).  Refreshments start at 6:30 with meetings starting promptly at 7 p.m.  Visitors are always welcome!

Our program is "Grow and Show."  We are asking members who can to bring blooms of some of their roses to show and tell about.  The blooms don't have to be perfect examples.  This is a great opportunity for everyone to share what they are growing.  Also, this is a great way to see what roses you might want to consider adding to your garden.
