The first actual meeting took place on October 8 and was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in the Activities Room, in Dublin CA. The President of the East Bay Rose Society, Theo Kahle, presided.
Officers were installed by the Chair of District Membership, Rose Gilardi. Our first officers were:
The membership fees were $5.00 for a single membership and $7.50 for a family.
