Rose of the South

Rose of the South

What has been called the “Rose of the South” is now at home in Orangeburg’s Edisto Memorial Gardens. Noisette roses are not easy to come by, but 54 varieties of the ever-blooming rose can be seen at the gardens, thanks to a joint project between the City of Orangeburg and the South Carolina Rose Society, along with the Garden Club of South Carolina. City officials and others gathered at the Gardens Thursday afternoon for the dedication of the new Noisette Rose Garden.

Reunion 2011 – August Update

Reunion 2011 – August Update

I am finally back to my computer after a fabulous reunion weekend and a week of vacationing with my wonderful family. I am still overwhelmed at the response to the reunion. I was a little disappointed after the May attendance count but once June rolled around, the numbers doubled, which became scary. And of course you have those who just show up at the last minute. Not to worry it all worked out. Thank you all for your hugs, your thank yous, your participation and your beautiful families. It was a weekend I will never forget and I hope you won’t either. We have a beautiful history and I was so proud to be able to share it with you, and Charleston, in a manner, different than most reunions. I would like to get your feedback on all the location, the hotel, the events, transportation, etc. Just tell me your thoughts so that I can make it better the next time. I do apologize to you who may not have taken your tour at Magnolia. Being the first time arranging that it was a little confusing. I already know what to do next time to make it a better experience. You almost need and entire day to include gardens, the house, boat, train, petting zoo, slavery tour, observatory, and the Noisette Rose garden. I wish I had done a better job of introductions. I know and met just about everyone who attended. I looked over the group picture (which is fabulous) and can name almost everyone. But many of you didn’t get to meet everyone which is a little...
