October 7 Monthly Meeting

Are you curious about what SWROGA is and what it does?  Society member Charles Hess will explain what SWROGA (Southwest Regional Orchid Growers Assn.) is, what it does, and who are members, etc.  Charles has been a GNTOS member for 18 years, and has been raising orchids since the 1980’s.  Since retiring from Texas Instruments in 1999, he has produced over 50 watercolors of favorite orchids, and is raising funds for conservation through sales of his limited edition orchid prints.  As usual, there will be table judging for members bringing orchids to show, and a raffle open to all who come.  Join us!

Orchids 101 will be at 2pm and led by Kathi in the greenhouse.
