November 5th, 2 p.m. meeting: CNYOS member Krum Sotirov will be presenting 'Growing Masdevallias Under Lights'

Krum is a long-time CNYOS club member and has given several talks over the years, which have been well-received. Krum also has the distinction of having recently started the first and only orchid society in Bulgaria! He is an excellent speaker, and will also have orchids available for sale. As a result, we won't have our raffle table but will as always have our wonderful Show Table, so bring in those orchids that didn't quite flower on time for the Show.
We will also be accepting Club officer nominations at our November meeting, with voting occurring at the December meeting. Please consider the possibility of assisting with the functions of the Club and think of any possible nominations you might have for officer positions. Thanks!
Don't forget that Sunday November 5th marks the end of Daylight Savings Time, so you will need to set your clocks back 1 hour the night before.

At our recent 2017 Fall Show and Sale, there were 3 AOS awards given! Show and AOS Awards pictures will soon be uploaded and further details about the awarded plants and their owners can be viewed on our Fall Show and Sale page; last year's pictures can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

December 3rd will be our Annual Christmas/Holiday dish-to-pass dinner, and January 7th will be our 2018 Winter Member's Silent Auction.

2018 dues will soon be 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!
