January Meeting:

Our next meeting is:

January 14th at 7:00 P.M.

The January meeting will be held at our new location in the Leesburg Community Center in the Griffin Room. This Building is just across the street from our old location. Use the Canal Street entrance as always. There will be more information on this in the newsletter.

Brian had some beautiful plants to choose from! Orchids and Poinsettias alike with some Christmas cactus just to make choosing difficult!!

The plants offered to the MLOS members for the Christmas gift were superb!

If you need information on how to grow these check out the orchid growing page on this website or go to 

American Orchid Society website and they have growing information on just about any orchid you may have. You can click on the link to the left for the Paph's culture sheet from AOS.

Joanie had some special Raffle plants to choose from.

Our December meeting was the MLOS Christmas Dinner which was great as always. More food than could possibly be eaten and some great friends.

Always a joy to have so many come together and enjoy the holidays. Deb Embry is to be commended for her great job of set up and getting the main meal together. A difficult job when you don't know how many guest are coming to dinner. She managed to get the job done nicely. Our sincere thanks to Deb for a job well done!
