Welcome to the Plantation Orchid Society

 

Dear POS Members and friends,

We want to thank our January speaker Tom Kuligowski for shed - ding “light” on the obscure subject; the importance lighting has on our orchids and how to measure it. Both novice and experts alike were enlightened.

Our February speaker is Anthony Millet, the Orchid breeder at the Bonnet house. We always appreciate the quality of speakers that we have access to.

I hope everyone was able to make it to make it to the Ft. Lauder - dale Orchid Society show. Thanks to our show committee who took the time to put together such a beautiful tabletop display last week - end. We are very proud of the great job done by Karen Reynold - son, Phyllis Durst, Elise Chapman, Tony & Marianna Spatola, Tony Blanc and Mary Lee Tabeling in setting up the beautiful society display for our club. Thanks to their efforts, we were able to take a Third Place Ribbon for a society display in the competition. Thanks also to the members who lent us their beautiful orchids.

Congratulations to Lori Parish, for the 2 Blue Ribbons awarded to her orchids at the Ft. Lauderdale Show. Additional congratulations to Sue Dohn for her Blue Ribbon and her Red Ribbon. A special congratulations to Tony Blanc for his work on Red Hawk Nursery’s large display which won a Blue Ribbon for the Most Artistic Display.

Remember involvement and participation are what make the Plan - tation Orchid Society so special. Don’t be shy... join in and get to know your fellow members.

See you at the meeting.

Rose Maytin,

President
