“May a Rose forever grow in your heart,” that’s what the Royal Rosarians wished for all of us who attended the memorial Rose Planting Ceremony at Sylvan Park.

I was honored to help plant the rose in memory of the residents who have passed away since we opened Sylvan Park. We had great attendance from the residents and families, there were snacks and refreshments as well as canopies for shade. The team members at Sylvan Park did a great job putting on a worthwhile celebration.

So when you wander around the Sylvan Park grounds and come upon the rose garden, I hope you pause and enjoy the budding rose bushes and remember the loved ones who have passed. We hope to do this every year.

Thanks Royal Rosarians for honoring us. They are: Ambassadors, Community Service, and Tradition. By Mayoral Declaration, the Royal Rosarians serve as the Official Greeters and Ambassadors of Goodwill for the City of Portland and surrounding areas. Rosarians are dedicated to community service through the charitable activities of the Royal Rosarian Foundation. We honor our legacy of tradition with rich pageantry and ceremonies from the mythical Realm of Rosaria.
