Our February 7th meeting will feature Jim Marlow of Marlow Orchids presenting, 'Coaxing Orchids to Bloom'.

Jim comes to our Club often and gives talks, sells orchids and displays/sells at our Annual Orchid Show and Sale. This month Jim will have orchids to sell at the meeting, and orchids can be pre-ordered by contacting Jim directly so that he can bring them to the meeting. Since we will have a speaker selling at the meeting we won't have our Raffle Table, but we will as usual have our Show Table so bring your flowering beauties!

The March meeting will be held on the 6th - this month will be our Biennial Orchid Compot Transplanting clinic.
In the past we have purchased seedlings from various sources usually in compots, and transplanted them into seedling media. This provides Members an opportunity to acquire seedlings of different types that they might otherwise not grow, and have them at a reasonable price and have a chance to experiment. More details will be posted as they are available.
We will have our Show Table, so please bring your blooming beauties to show off! It's likely that we will also have a Raffle Table.

Elections were held at the December meeting (votes cast for those nominated at the November meeting) and Club Officers are now as follows:
President: Kim Boronczyk
Vice President and Program Chair: Honey Goshorn
Secretary: Dolores Capella, Judy Witkin alternate
Treasurer: Carol Haskell

Congratulations to the new officers and the previous ones who served long and well, we appreciate both very much! Thanks Sue and Kim, and to Honey, Dolores, Judy and Carol for their tireless service and smiling faces!

Our 2015 Annual Fall Show and Sale went very well this year though no AOS awards were given. The Show pictures have been completely uploaded and can be viewed on the Show Pictures page. Please visit our Annual Fall Show and Sale page for more general information.

2016 dues are now due; please see Club Treasurer Carol Haskell at the meetings to submit your dues - Thanks!

Our orchid club is now on Facebook! Check it out here and let us know what else you think might be good to have on the site.

Our main website now hosts three photo galleries. One is our the Show Pictures page where images from our orchid shows can be viewed, The second is the Virtual Showtable page, which also has a section for you to display your growing areas, and the third gallery is the Native Orchids page (still in planning stage). Several members and friends go on orchid treks each year, and this is where they can post and you can view their pictures. Sometimes they also take pictures of other interesting plants they find along the way.

Also a reminder that our newsletter and website have a section where Members can post a list of orchids or orchid-related items they wish to sell/buy/trade. If you are a neighboring orchid society (including Canada) and will be having an orchid auction, these can be listed there as well as on our events calendar. Send requests to Newsletter Editor Eva Galson and your list will be put in the newsletter and on our website. Please submit your request at least two weeks before the next scheduled meeting - Thanks!

Hope to see you at our next meeting or event!

See the CNYOS calendar for other regional orchid-related events!
