February 13th Meeting
The speaker for the February meeting was Ron McHatton, the Director of Education for the American Orchid Society. Ron discussed a variety of topics on orchid culture. He addressed many questions concerning orchid growing including virus, bacteria infections, sunburn on orchids and how to treat and identify many of the common problems found on orchids. We thank Ron for sharing his expertise and giving us growing information to help us grow our orchids pest free.
There will be a short meeting in March at the regularly scheduled MLOS meeting for the volunteers for the spring auction. If you signed up to be a volunteer at the auction please plan to attend March 13 prior to the regular meeting. Check for the time in the next newsletter. The auction will be held April 21st at the Community Building next door to the Womens Club. More information will follow in the next newsletter. Let Suzanne know if you plan to bring orchids for the auction.
Also don't forget to bring your orchids for the monthly show & tell after the meeting. There is also a silent auction held at the end of every meeting - you can get some great bargains! Don't forget to buy your raffle tickets for the drawing.
You can always add to your orchid collection at our monthly meetings by purchasing from the vendor at the monthly meeting. The vendor for the month of February was Jack Batchelor with a dazzling array of orchids for sale (see photo below).
