Our June meeting on Sunday the 4th will be a combined meeting of our Spring Picnic and our Annual Spring Orchid Auction (at Parish Hall to back left of parking lot).

Please note that the meeting will be held in the Parish Hall to the back left of the parking lot instead of our usual spot in the main church building. This is where we have held Christmas/Holiday parties and auctions. Since there will be a lot to do and to set up for auctioning plants, reviewing what is being auctioned, getting your auction number and all of these please plan on arriving at 1:30pm at the latest. For the Dinner, please bring a favorite dinner or dessert item to share with everyone. I believe there will be a Show Table at this meeting, so bring your flowering orchids. Not sure if there will be a raffle table or not, but feel free to bring something in just in case. There will be a list of auction items emailed out by Kim B. soon. Thanks and see you at the auction!

We held our Annual Fall Show and Sale last October at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville, N.Y. We had some very interesting exhibits and displays, and some excellent orchids and supplies for sale. There weren't any formal AOS awards this year though a good number were pulled for pre-judging evaluation. Next year's Show will be held at Beaver Lake on September 30th-October 1st.

Show pictures have now been uploaded and can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

2017 dues will soon be due; please see Club Treasurer Carol Haskell at the meetings to submit your dues - 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 three 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 also has a section for you to display your growing areas, and the third gallery is the Native Orchids page (still in planning stage). Several members and friends go on orchid treks each year, and this is where they can post and you can view their pictures. Sometimes they also take pictures of other interesting plants they find along the way.

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 Eva Galson 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!
