My name is Beth Van Der Burgt and it has been my pleasure to serve as the Board President of the Richmond Rose Garden for the past 11 years. I am pleased to announce that beginning January 1, 2022, Kelly VanVleet will assume this role for the Rose Garden, and I will become the first-ever inaugural Past President.  We have accomplished so much in the last 11 years including a new fence along US 40 and restored walkways in the Garden which is why my passion for the Rose Garden has increasingly grown. I am proud of what the Rose Garden has become for our community. Moreover, one of my primary goals in my new role is to further our donor development. We cannot thank our community enough for all of their support. Thus, it is with much excitement that I continue my participation in the leadership of the Richmond Rose Garden.
