Welcome to the Plantation Orchid Society

 

Dear POS Members and friends,

June is our 47th Anniversary Pot Luck Dinner. We are asking members to bring a main course, side dish, appetizer or salad. If you have not signed up, please call Angela Puca at 954-791-1874.  

Don’t forget to bring in your photos for the Annual Members Photo contest. You can submit 2 pictures you have taken of a named orchid. The pictures must be 8”x 10” size with your name and the
orchid name printed on the back. Winning photo will be featured on the Plantation Orchid Society Auction poster. All membership renewals and new memberships are due in June to receive membership plant.

Thank you Tony. Movie night was a big hit. I received a lot of positive feedback from our members. The Ghost orchid is very special to our delicate ecosystem. In September we will have a presentation on leafless orchids. I personally am very excited.

I would like to give special recognition to the members who have stepped up to help make our meetings run smoothly. Helene Albee Photographer/Auctioneer, Maureen Reily, and Barbara Van Strander helping Tina Pena with snacks. Sandra Sproul helping Elise Chapman with membership.

HELP us gets sponsors: POS needs business ads for the upcoming year. For a nominal fee these ads will be featured in our newsletter, website and membership booklets. Let our sponsors know you saw their ad in the Plantation Orchid Society Newsletter.

Looking ahead: Our Annual Auction is October 6th. Look over your plants while repotting and select some to donate to the club for the auction. Plants of all sizes are accepted. All the monies raised by the club are used for the club. If the plant is not in bloom in October, take a bloom picture and put it on the plant for auction.  

I encourage ALL members to join in and become active. No experience is necessary.

See you at the meeting
Rose Maytin,
President
