A bloomin’ success
CHAMPION Potted orchid was won by Ron and Margaret Savage at the Orchid Society’s show last weekend.
Joan Grey had a very successful day, winning Reserve Champion Potted Orchid, Best Specimen, Best Australian Native Species and Champion and Reserve Champion Cut Orchid. Cathy Ford won well-contested Champion Open Floral Art.
The display was enjoyed by a large crowd and the raffle was most successful, with 10 prizes, which donated by society members. The sales tables were just about sold out.
The society’s next big event will be a display and sale at Carnivale, joining with the Photographic group at the Port Douglas Community Centre on Friday 26th May, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th.
