Kudos to La Jolla United Methodist Church

The rose garden that graces the front of La Jolla United Methodist Church at 6063 La Jolla Blvd. gets the nod for this week’s kudos. Retired Rev. Tom Denman, the church’s first pastor, started the lush garden that begun about 25 years ago as a “project.” It is now tended as a labor of love by a volunteer church committee led by Paula Todd.

“We look at the rose garden as a gift to the community,” Todd said, noting there are more than 100 rose bushes. She said a committee of about 14 or 15 volunteers time three or four times annually on weekends to do most of the work. In the spring, the church hangs a banner that implores passersby to “stop and smell the roses.”
