Roser celebrating 100 years

Roser Memorial Community Church, 512 Pine Ave., Anna Maria, continues to celebrate 100 years on the island with a series of events.

The calendar includes:

• Saturday, March 9, 7:30 p.m., the Sarasota Chorus of the Keys is in concert at the church, with a reception following the show at Relish Cafe & Marketplace, 503 Pine Ave., Anna Maria.

Admission to the concert is free, but organizers are asking for a free-will offering.

• Sunday, March 10, 10 a.m., the church will host a rededication of the chapel, with a celebration across the street. Organizers expect a “fairly large crowd.”

• Sunday, March 17, mid-morning after the first church service, a time-capsule will be buried and a tree planted on the church grounds.

Also, Roser anniversary organizers have worked with the Anna Maria Island Historical Society, which has put up a 100th anniversary display at the museum, 402 Pine Ave., Anna Maria.

The museum, open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., features old photographs of Roser as well as stories about the construction of the chapel, pastors at the church and its congregation.
