Presidents Message
     Welcome Back members and guests!
     Yes, it's already September and once again we will start our regular meetings with programs and workshops.
      This month we will start off our season with a work day at our memorial garden in Water's Edge.
So far the garden has been growing well and we need some clean up to keep the plants in good health.
      Our October meeting will be an interesting one, with members bringing in previous workshop plants that they have been growing. This will include the Phalaenopsis from our last workshop, to the many previous workshops including ; Cymbidiums, Oncidiums, Cattleya and Dendrobium. It's always fun and informative to see how others are doing with their workshop plants.
       Hope everyone has survived this heat of summer and are ready for the cooler nights ahead. Most of our plants need the lower night temperatures to put out their buds for the upcoming months!
       Looking forward to seeing all of you this season and sharing our orchid adventures,
