The group will be tending to the roses and provide a demonstration on how to care for the flowers in preparation for spring growth.

The Walter Stiern Rose Garden is located north of the Doré Theatre and Todd Madigan Gallery on campus. Parking in Lot B will be free. Refreshments will be provided. Please bring gloves and gardening tools to participate.

The 60+ Club was founded as a service club for the university in March 1986. The club is a partnership between the university and the community of retired persons, and is made up of persons from all walks of life who are concerned citizens, active, curious and with the time pursue life-long learning. The club is a member-motivated and member-governed organization. Its purpose is to provide personal enrichment, educational opportunities, volunteer challenges and social activities in a campus environment utilizing the resources of the university and the experience of its members.

The 60+ Club is for anyone 60 years of age and older or retired. The club holds meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. and has 14 interest groups and eight volunteer groups.
