Syracuse Rose Society

Welcome to the Syracuse Rose Society website page!

The Syracuse Rose Society is the oldest rose society in continuous existence in the United States affiliated with the American Rose Society and the Canadian Rose Society. Founded in 1911, the Syracuse Rose Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to promote, educate and celebrate the world of roses.

Charitable contributions to continue our work are welcomed!  DONATION FORM

The Syracuse Rose Society is always appreciative of Syracuse University students and staff who find time in their busy schedules to volunteer at Thornden Park. On Sept. 14, a work crew of 25 SU staff and students affiliated with student support services worked with our SRS volunteers. The students are first generation college attendees and have indicated that giving to and working with the community is a goal for them. Thank you to all!
