A bloomin’ suc­cess

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - REAL ESTATE -

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.
