     The Orange County Rose Society hosts an annual rose show in either the spring or fall.  The OCRS Rose Show returned as an in-person event in 2021.  The 2022 show took place on Saturday, October 22 in the East Room of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda.  Many thanks to the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum for allowing the OCRS to host the show in the elegant and beautiful East Room.  Click the link below to download the program for the 2022 show.  Results from both the 2021 and 2022 shows (in Excel files) also are available using the links below.  Click the tabs at the bottom of the Excel file to view the three categories of results:  Arrangements, Horticulture and Photography.
