June 2 Monthly Meeting

This is the first of our biannual auctions. Funds raised from the auctions help pay for our yearly shows. SO – look over your orchids and plan on donating divisions, extras, etc. to the auction, then plan on replacing them with new ones from the auction! Also, bring some food to share – finger foods, desserts, salads. It’s a really fun time to eat together, and then bid on some new orchids for your collection!

Because of the auction, there will be no Orchids 101 at 2pm, and no raffle or table judging.

May 5 Monthly Meeting

The May 5 program on “Phalaenopsis Growing in Texas” will be presented by Peter Lin of Big Leaf Orchids, Southlake, TX.  Peter has been growing orchids for over 30 years, beginning in Taiwan at the age of 10.  After working in the IT industry for 12 years, he expanded his collection, began hybridizing and established a family owned mail-order operation.  Big Leaf Orchids specializes in Phalaenopsis with emphasis on novelties, including flowers that are fragrant, waxy and multi-colored. Peter often brings orchids to sell. There will be the usual raffle afterward, and refreshments are available too. See you then!

101 class will be at 2pm in the greenhouse with Kathi leading the discussion.
