December 3 AUCTION

The December meeting is our semi-annual auction. Please be sure to bring plants, or divisions or other orchid related items to put in the auction. This is our only fundraising function we have to sustain our society. Also bring some finger food to share so we can have a snack while we bid. There will be no raffle or member table judging.

GNTOS members will also be voting on the slate of nominated officers for 2024:
President – Jim Williams
Vice-President – Emily Quinn
Secretary – Linda Horton
Treasurer – Barb McNamee

The usual Orchids 101 will return in January.

November 5 Growing Orchids in Dallas

Dallas is hot. And cold. Sometimes humid and other times as dry as a software manual. Daniel Callahan, a member of GNTOS and an AOS judge with the Dallas Judging Center, is going to help us to adapt to and overcome the challenges we face in trying to grow orchids in Dallas. There will be lots of tips and tricks for all types of growers! We’ll be having our usual raffle and members’ table judging.

Orchids 101 will be a Q&A led by Charlie in the greenhouse at 2pm.

(AND REMEMBER to set your clocks back Saturday, Nov. 4!)

Remember that our December 3 meeting will be our 2nd auction this year! Be looking over your collection to see if there are some plants you could donate. These auctions help us raise funds for our really popular Spring Orchid Show and Sale, along with a few other events we attend to get the word out about our society. Please consider donations to the auction – and come prepared to purchase some new favorites for your collection!
