Welcome to the Plantation Orchid Society

 

Dear POS Members and friends:

Thank you to Mark Margolis for his lively presentation on the Catasetum group of orchids. We all had a lot of laughs as we learned about this often overlooked genus.


For our September meeting Tony Blanc has put together 3 workshops. Jeff Tucker will be demonstrating potting, Tony Blanc and Karen Reynolson will be demonstrating semi-hydroponic potting and Richard Konefal will be showing how to mount orchids.


As we approach October our focus is the Annual POS Orchid Auction which will be held Tuesday, October 7th 2014 here at Deicke Auditorium. I would like to reinforce to POS members to get the word out. This is our main fundraiser that covers all the costs for the year. Lots of help is needed to make this a successful event. There will be flyers available so please post one at work, your church, or where ever you can. There are many ways for you to help the Auction.
     Post a flyer
     Invite everyone you know to the auction
     Separate some of your favorite plants to donate to the Auction.
Volunteer to:
     Pick up plants for auction.
     Setup and break down at Deicke the day of the auction.
     Bring plenty of goodies and beverages for our guests.
     Help us decorate.


Members are what make the Plantation Orchid Society so special.  Consider helping out to make this year the most amazing year ever.


Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
