Our June meeting will be our last meeting for the year. We will have our annual potluck dinner with the main dish (fried chicken) being provided by the club. Please bring your favorite dish to share with everyone. There is always lots of great food and good company - come join us!!
Dinner will be followed by the installation of officers for the 2017-2018 year.
Just a reminder to save the date of December 2nd for our next auction taking place at the Leesburg Women's Club. A great way to get some new orchids for your collection.
Our speaker for the April Meeting was Art Chadwick Jr. from Chadwick & Son Orchids in Richmond, VA. He spoke on the beginning of the cattleya orchids and how they were used in corsages. He also handed out a handy information sheet on the blooming dates of catts and the night time temperatures the different catts prefer. Thanks to Art for some great information.
Photo above is the orchids for the raffle drawing. This is a great way to add to your collection and support your club as well.
Our Thanks to Jack Batchelor, Suzanne Farnsworth, Bob Durant, Wally Wilder, and the entire crew that helped put on the Potting Clinic at Simon Seed. It was a great success!!
