Madeleine rose garden wins awards

The Centennial Rose Garden at the Madeleine Parish in Northeast Portland received several awards this summer.

All 120 roses along Northeast 24th Avenue have memorial plaques that remember former parishioners.  

The Centennial Rose Garden received first place in the Frank E. Beach Visibility award for Commercial and Public Agencies, awarded by the City of Portland Parks and Recreation. It also received the Commercial Rose Gardens and Plantings, Section B for Churches, Hospitals, and Schools prize, awarded by the Rose Festival and the Royal Rosarians.

A permanent plaque for the second award will be installed in the rose garden this summer, and the visibility award was a gift certificate to the store in the rose garden in Washington Park. The ceremony was held in the rose gardens on in June and was attended by Father Mike Biewend, pastor, Michael Crocker, the primary rose tender, and James Wurzer, business manager.
