Presidents message:

     Welcome to all of our Members and Guests 
     I hope you are enjoying this extended Indian summer as it looks pretty good after the extreme heat of this past summer!  Lots of our orchids are having as much trouble as we are , adjusting to this weather and especially the lower sun in the sky! I now have many orchids that have sunburned badly because of the low humidity and the exposure to the sun!
     Seems like lots of Cattleya are blooming this time of year and I hope some will hold untill the Sarasota show in January! The  Sarasota show will be the 6,7 and 8 of January with set-up on the 6!  We will be putting in a 100sq foot floor display so we need lots of well groomed plants! We will discuss this at the November meeting!
      Hope to be getting the packet for the advertising campaign this month and get a handout for December!
      Hope to see all of you at the meeting on the 21st, 



Dave Junka, President

                     7:00 PM

   The Program for this month ( Nov. 21 ) will be an interesting take on how we look at orchids from Hybridizing to flowering and the many tasks and procedures we follow as I will show orchid seed pods and explain how we go through the seeds travels from an almost microscopic seed to a blooming plant and explain the somewhat treacherous things these tiny plants go through to make it, usually between 4 and 7 years to blooming!
   We will actually be taking plants from my newest hybrid, out of the flask and every member will leave with a tiny plant in a clear ornament to hang and grow! should be very educational and fun! 
   The cost of the workshop will be $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non members.
   See you at the meeting!  

Don't forget to also bring your blooming orchids for the show table.
