Honor a Veteran

2021 I planted “Let Freedom Ring” in honor of my step father David Alther and my brother George.  Dad served in the Army in WWII receiving  the Bronze Star for fighting in The Battle of the Bulge.  He was a major inspiration in creating Bring Back the Roses.  He loved red roses & planted them wherever they lived.  My treasured big brother George Dunn served in the Navy during the Korean War. 14 years older than me, he was a rock in my life, a source of great wisdom.  


Just 10 More Days!

Yes, there’s 10 days to Plant a Rose and Honor A Loved One!  If you haven’t heard… It’s all about returning Broken Arrow to it’s history as the City of Roses when almost every home had a rose garden.

Embrace our history…Plant a rose! Take a picture, post on our Facebook Page: Keep Broken Arrow Beautiful.  Tell us who you are honoring and why.  This isn’t a photography contest.  There will be a drawing from entries May 31.  Winners, announced June 2, will receive a rose bush donated by Riddle Plant Farm and Sanders Nursery.
