Next Meeting May 4th, 2pm: Annual Spring Orchid Auction

It's that time of year again! Though the weather isn't very spring-like it's time for our Annual Spring Auction again. We obtain orchids from vendors and have an Auction complete with active bidding (not a silent auction). Please arrive early to get your bidder number and to check out the plants and or supplies to be auctioned off, and to allow us to get a head start and finish in a timely fashion. The auction is open to anyone, so bring your friends and help to support the club! Since we'll have an auction we won't be having a Raffle Table but will have the Show Table.

According to the newsletter we have one volunteer for snacks and refreshments for our May meeting. We usually have two, and our auction is a big snacking event so if you think you will be attending, please consider bringing something for people to eat or drink. Thanks!

Last weekend was the club road trip to the new venue for the Rochester Orchid club (GROS). Please note that we will again be collecting plants for the STOS club show which will be held in the Binghamton, NY area on April 26th and 27th, with setup on the 25th.

Please note that Long-time orchid vendor from the Rochester NY area Joe Kunisch will be downsizing and retiring. He has stated that the upcoming STOS show in a few weeks will be his last show to vend at, and he will have some very good deals. Please support Joe and our club, and check out his last offerings and wish him well. Thanks, Joe for attending our Show and supporting the club for so many years.

The bus to the SEPOS show may be full. The trip is on Saturday, and the website editor will be visiting on Sunday afternoon. Should be fun!.

Our 2013 Annual Fall Show and Sale went fairly well last year. Show pictures (over 70!) and the special awards list can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

2014 dues are 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!
