Our CNYOS November meeting will be held on November 1st, and will be GROS's Jeanne Kaeding and she will be presenting on Equitant Oncidiums. Jeanne has been growing Oncidiums for many years and will have a limited number of her own hybrid crosses for sale at the meeting. Since the speaker is a vendor and will be bringing plants for sale to the meeting, we will not have our usual Raffle Table but as always we will have our Show Table, so please bring your flowering orchids! Also, the club will be taking Jeanne out for dinner after the meeting, so if you would like to join in on the orchid talk and ask questions afterwards, please let Club VP Honey Goshorn know so that she can alert the restaurant to how many will be attending.

We will also be holding Officer Elections during the
November meeting.

At our December 6th meeting, we will be having our Annual Christmas/Holiday dish-to-pass Party, and there will be a Raffle and the Show Table.
Don't forget that Daylight Saving Time will be adjusted back one hour early Sunday morning of Nov. 1st; so don't forget to set your clocks back or you'll be an hour early for the meeting!

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

2015 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!
