Jason Fredette has been a long time member of the Seattle Rose Society. He has been active in the rose society since he was a young boy. Helping with the shows and entering his exhibits at various rose shows in the area.
He has been Vice President and President of the Seattle Rose Society, he has for years arranged for our society Annual Rose Sale and Auction. He has been RIR Coordinator/Chair for the PNW District and the Seattle Rose Society. He was Chair for the PNW District meeting and show a few years ago that Seattle hosted. Note: He coordinated a new feature at that District Meeting… An arranging challenge he called “The Iron Arranger.” A timed event where members of the PNW could make an arrangement in direct competition with other participants… fun stuff! We are doing that event again this year with the Seattle Rose Society Show.
