Welcome Members and Guests,

Our February meeting was a great experience. We had three marvelous entries for our Jeffs Memorial contest, then Dave went over what exactly made them good, then gave us a program about how to design orchid based baskets and other arrangements, so we all can make something beautiful with our plants for special occasions. See page 2, meetings and newsletters, for pics of the winning entries. Congratulations to Mae Madonna for first place, Martha Devernoe for second, and Alice Gross for third.
   Our March meeting will be a garden work day. We will meet in the orchid garden at Waters Edge at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday March 22. Please note the day change. We cannot work in the evenings in March because it gets dark too early. Please bring clean pruners and/or scissors, wear your gloves, and remember to bring your own lunch/snacks. Dave will have water for all. We will probably work until around noon.  Thanks for all of your participation, well see you on the 22nd!
