The January program on “World Orchid Congress 2017 Ecuador” will be presented by Emily Quinn, a 20-year society member. Emily was introduced to orchids when she went to the now closed Orchids and Ferns in Houston. She purchased ferns and orchids – the ferns died, the orchids didn’t! She serves as training coordinator for the American Orchid Society Dallas Judging Center where she has been an accredited judge for over seven years.
This month, we will have our Semi-Annual Auction. Bring one or more plants or divisions you don’t want to keep, then get a paddle and bid! You can also bring collectibles or any orchid related item. We also invite people to bring some food to share in a potluck meal before the auction – finger foods, veggies, desserts, etc. This is one of our two fund raising events for the society, so bring your bucks, along w/ some food and orchids, and get ready raise some money for the society! Auction and Potluck start at 2:30pm.
There will be no 101 class or table judging due to the auction.
