The Rotary Club of Rockville has kicked off its annual Rose Sale, which benefits local students.
Each year, the Rotary Club of Rockville's members sell dozens of roses to fund scholarships for graduates of Rockville, Ellington and Tolland High Schools, who are going onto college. Scholarships are based on the previous year's sale, and the Rotary most recently gave out $4,000 in scholarships, based on last year's sale.
Frank Borysevicz said the sale, which is in its 33rd year, has been well-supported by the community and local businesses. Purchasers have their chose of red roses, or a multi-colored bouquet, in a clear florist's box.
