January 7th Meeting is Cancelled! (rescheduled likely to March 7th), We originally were going to have our Annual Member's Silent Auction, but Sue decided it's going to just be Too Darned Cold, and people and plants shouldn't have to go out into the severe temperatures. Besides human frostbite, plants could easily be damaged moving from house to car to auction, and not really be visible until a bit later after people have spent good time and money on them.

Instead, the Silent Auction will most likely be moved to March 4th at 2pm since there wasn't a meeting plan set for that month yet. All details would remain the same, just the different date. Stay tuned!

Also please note: if you didn't get an email notice from Sue about the January meeting being cancelled, please contact her to update your email address. Also, if you know of anyone who isn't on the email list, please forward the meeting cancellation info to them - Thanks!

The February meeting will be on the 4th, at the usual 2pm. Jim Marlow will be presenting an interesting topic, and most likely will have orchids for sale. If you would like to preorder some plants from Jim to bring to the meeting, contact him directly as soon as possible so that he can coordinate bringing them to the meeting. Please note: February 4th is also Superbowl Sunday, and we all want to have the meeting start promptly so that everyone can make it to the store to get game goodies and set in our comfy couches before game festivities get started. Thank you for your understanding for these events!



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.

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!
