Don't forget the Bi-annual MLOS Orchid auction on Saturday, Dec. 1st. Auction volunteers should arrive at 11:00 AM to assist with the set up and will open at 12 PM to the public. If you have any questions or problems with your volunteer position for the auction please contact Ann for assistance.

The auction will be held at:

Turn East on 44 and turn right on 9th St. The pavilion is on the left side facing Lake Harris. The pavilion is between the Women's Club and the Lake. You can put the address in Google maps and it will give you directions to the park and then look for the Pavilion.

We had a great meeting in November mounting Oncidiom sphacelatum. The boards of cypress were all prepared for us and all the plants were beautiful.  Another great addition to our collections thanks to Ann Parrish. Ann graciously donated divisions of her spectacular sphacelatum which had overgrown its allotted space. Now if we can all grow it as well as she did. See photo below of  Brian and Fred selling the new divisions and on the right a photo of a completed mount. Great plants!
