A Short History of the Bloss Memorial Rose Garden
In 2000 the President of the Atwater Garden Club chose for her yearly project a rose garden in Bloss Park. To start this project a committee was formed and the first fundraiser was held. This was “Lunch in the Park” and Bloss Park was the venue. For $10 a person you received a Tri Tip sandwich, salad, and all the trimmings. This was successful enough to put the starter funds in the bank to proceed with this project. This part of the park became the “Christine Thompson Bloss Memorial Rose Garden” and it took four years to complete. Plans were drafted for the garden and with the help of the city a full scale map was installed in the office at the community center and people could go and pick a spot and a rose to be dedicated to their loved one. The response was overwhelming and the spots sold out quite quickly. In the spring of 2001 the roses were planted, and a drip system was installed. It had been suggested that something be done for the center of each garden since the pattern for each is circular. After the attack on the Twin Towers in New York the decision was made for us. There is a North Garden and a South Garden and each is dedicated to those who gave their all for the United States of America. One is to memorialize Dec. 7, 1941 and the other for Sep. 11, 2001. The park was formally dedicated on October 6, 2004.

This garden now needs some TLC. Help is needed in order to maintain this beautiful treasure of Atwater. Please contact Georgia Johnson at 209-394-7223 if you can help.

United we Stand Atwater!!!!
