Our Fall Show and Sale will be taking place September 30th - October 1st, at Beaver Lake Nature Center, Baldwinsville, N.Y. and we will not have a regular meeting at St. Augustine's Church.

Normally our club would meet the first Sunday of the month at the Church. Instead, all monthly activities will happen at our Annual Fall Show and Sale which has been hosted now for a good number of years by The Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville. The Nature Center is a great place to visit, with amazing trails through the woods and around the lake and is a perfect setting for our Show.
Setup for our Show will be at Noon/1pm Friday September 29th until 6 pm. If you just want to drop off food or plants and not perform setup, then you can arrive at 10am as the Fingers will be setting up things in the club back room. Please send Sue Finger your list of Show plants by Tuesday September 26th, as this is when she has taken time off to do data entry (and everything else) Any questions can be directed to Sue, or our Show Chairman Judi Witkin at mraush at twcny dot rr dot com .

more details soon! please view our Show Page for more details and information.

Show pictures have now been uploaded and can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

2017 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!
