ROSES TO THE OCCASION

Profile America -- Monday, June 9th. This is National Rose Month, celebrating America's favorite flower, grown in all 50 states. One of the world's biggest floral celebrations is going on now and will pack in its greatest activity through Jine - the Portland, Oregon Rose Festival, founded in 1907. Portland is called the City of Roses, and its many rose-themed celebrations began in late April, and continues into July. Among the numerous events making up the festival are best rose trials, an art show, drag races, a rose garden contest, and a grand floral float showcase. Roses for all sorts of events - weddings, Valentines Day, graduations, anniversaries, and birthdays - are sold by some 15,300 florists nationwide. Profile America is in its 17th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
