No April CNYOS Meeting Due to conflicts with Easter weekend and many CNYOS members traveling to SE Pa for the SEPOS Orchid Show
In January, our meeting was cancelled because of frigid weather. Another month and another bad forecast with another canceled meeting and the remaining schedule has been adjusted thusly: April -No meeting.
May 6th: traditionally the Annual Spring Orchid Auction, instead Jim Marlow of Marlows Orchids will present 'Growing Bulbophyllums' and he will bring some for sale. If you would like to preorder plants from their website, contact Jim ASAP so that he can bring plants to the meeting. June 3rd : Usually our Spring Picnic, we will also be holding our Spring Orchid Auction on the same date. With so much going on, it's best to arrive early to settle all auction details before eating and starting bidding.
There are also some nearby orchid events going on. STOS Annual Show and Sale Oakdale Mall April 28th-29th. African Violet Sociey holding Show and Sale the same weekend. Piping Rock Orchids likely to hold their Open House and Picnic June 10th.
Most likely our 2018 CNYOS Show and Sale will be held the last weekend in September but verification needs to be done with our show site host.
At our recent 2017 Fall Show and Sale, there were 3 AOS awards given! Show and AOS Awards pictures will soon be uploaded and further details about the awarded plants and their owners can be viewed on our Fall Show and Sale page; last year's pictures can be viewed on the Show Pictures page.
2018 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!
See the CNYOS calendar for other regional orchid-related events!
