Our next CNYOS meeting will be held on Sunday, May 1st and we will be hosting our Spring Vendor Auction.

Each Spring the club holds it's annual fundraiser with orchids either purchased or donated from various Orchid Vendors. Plants are auctioned off with live bidding and the proceeds used to fund our Club activities. All are welcome, but guests will need to donate $5 unless they become a Member at the meeting. Come early to pick up your bidder number and look the plants over, so we can start on time! We won't have our Raffle Table, but we will as usual have our Show Table so bring your flowering beauties!

There is one other event that CNYOS will be associated with during the month of May.
On May 6th from 5-8 pm, Seward House Museum will be hosting a reception with and for CNYOS. Spring into the Gift Shop gallery to view the unique displays and talk to CNYOS Members who will be on hand to provide tips and strategies for growing these unique beauties. In addition to the contemporary exhibit in the Visitor's Center, guests are invited into the Museum to view the Dining and Drawing rooms, with docents on hand to answer questions and interpret the spaces. Complimentary refreshments will be served. http://www.sewardhouse.org

Our Spring Picnic will be held in June. The date and location are yet to be determined.

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!
