At the Friends of the Rogerson Clematis Collection, Thanksgiving 2012 finds us with much to be thankful for. We cannot let the holiday pass without first acknowledging our members and patrons, who with the gift of their membership materially demonstrate their support for the continued development of FRCC’s collection, gardens, and facilities. We thank the City of Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation department and staff, for their unfailing helpfulness, always a great team and a great attitude. To all of the donor’s of clematis and companion plants, especially the vendors at the Luscher Farm Open House in September, we thank you too. Thanks especially to the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust. It was through their generous grant that we were able to complete the installation of the orchard garden. Everyone who sees the work finds the transformation remarkable.
And we continue to cherish the contributions of Bob and Carol Gutmann, who give to FRCC in so many ways. They, along with Brewster Rogerson himself, continue to be our guardian angels and trusted advisers.
We wish everyone a joyful season of Thanksgiving.
