The Lehigh Valley Rose Society is a non-profit organization formed to promote and encourage amateur and professional rose horticulture; promote the rose as a symbol of beauty and friendship; encourage our members and the general public in growing the National Floral Emblem; and educate both our members and the community at large as to the care of roses. 

We are a local chapter and "subordinate organization" of the American Rose Society. The ARS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded in 1892 and is the nation's oldest and largest single plant horticultural society. Our tax exempt status falls under "Group Exemption Number": 7044.
