Meetings for 2022

There will be an in-person meeting at the old church meeting area on September 11th, at 2pm; the second Sunday of the month due to rescheduling to avoid the Labor Day weekend.

The September meeting will be about show details, finishing things up and explaining how things will work. Please consider volunteering for the many open roles during the Show. Likely there will be Show and Raffle tables

Masks may be worn when not seated and social distancing maintained possibly, depending on the requirements of the church. Updates will be provided if necessary. 

Also look to sign up for roles for the CNYOS Fall Show and Sale in October!

There are no scheduled meetings for July-August, but consider preparing for our upcoming Fall Show and Sale, which does look like will happen this year! (virus, stay away....) The date for our Fall Show and Sale will be October 1st-2nd at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville, NY. , with setup on Friday, September 30th at 1pm. There are three vendors scheduled so far; J&L Orchids, Fair Orchids and Main Street Orchids. Show Co-chairs will be Jerry and Sue Finger. Sue Finger will be the Registrar, Judges Coordinator, Vendors and Clubs Coordinator, Venue contact for BLNC, Show Treasurer and updater of the Show Rules and Schedule (whew! that's a lot of hats!)

   MEMBERSHIP - Dues are now due! If you haven't paid yet, then you will be dropped from the email list for newsletters and will not receive links to the Zoom programs . Since we have been holding meetings with speakers both on Zoom and now in-person, we have resumed collection of dues. Please contact Sue Finger is you are not sure if your dues are paid. Thank you!

With the lack of a Club President and Vice President, we now have an Executive Committee to oversee the Club. If you have ideas, questions or suggestions, please contact Jerry, Judi or Jan.  

Many orchid shows around the country and around the world have been canceled. One major consequence to the orchid world, other than the obvious major concern that we all practice safe health measures and help each other to stay healthy and safe, is that all of the orchid vendors that we know and love are not able to sell orchids at the shows and their individual open house events now canceled. This will be a major hardship to these vendors. Please consider, if you are financially sound, to purchase some orchids from these vendors!

We have shifted to posting, viewing and talking about orchids on our Facebook page. The link to our page is on the toolbar to the left. Check out our Facebook page; there are people from around the world who visit and upload orchid pictures, questions and comments. If you have orchids flowering now or they did flower during the last few months but meetings were canceled, head over to Facebook and upload these pictures and chat with people there! 

At our previous 2019 Fall Show and Sale, there was 1 AOS award given! Show and AOS Awards pictures will soon be uploaded. Pictures of flowers, displays and artwork can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

We are now collecting Dues for 2022 since we are holding Zoom meetings with paid speakers. If you would like to receive links to our meetings, then please submit your 2022 dues by March 31st to  Club Treasurer Sue Finger - 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 two 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 shows previous years' Member's flowering orchids, which hadn't cooperated by flowering during a show or meeting. This page has been superseded by our Facebook page, where members and many guests post and share orchid pictures. There are native orchid pictures which can be viewed; both links can be found to the left. 

 

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 Chris Smith

(csmith23 at twcny dot rr dot com) 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!
