Next Meeting will be replaced by our
2014 Annual Fall Show and Sale,
Sat. and Sun. October 4th and 5th (with setup on Friday the 3rd)
at the Beaver Lake Nature Center, Baldwinsville, NY

Each year in the Fall the CNYOS holds it's annual Fall Show and Sale, where we host a few orchid clubs and invite four orchid vendors to our Orchid Show and Sale. In recent years we have held the Show at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville, NY. This year's Show will be held on October 4th and 5th, and Show setup will be the Friday afternoon prior to the Show. AOS Judges will attend the Show Saturday morning and will do ribbon and official flower judging, and then will screen plants for potential AOS Awards. Last year we had an excellent educational display which won an AOS Award of Merit.

At each Show we also have judging of orchid-related artwork, educational displays and photographs, and anyone can enter articles to be judged. We have also invited four orchid vendors who will be attending this year's show, so there will be lots of plants and supplies for sale! This year's vendors will be JustPat Orchids, Marlow Orchids, Piping Rock Orchids and Kelley's Korner Orchid Supplies.
If you would like to enter something in the art or flower displays to be judged, or would like more information, please contact our Club President Sue Finger

The Show is free to attend, though Beaver Lake does have a small parking fee.

Please visit our Annual Fall Show and Sale page for more information; see you at the Show!

Our 2013 Annual Fall Show and Sale went fairly well last year. Show pictures (over 70!) can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.

2014 dues are 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!

See the CNYOS calendar for other regional orchid-related events!
