Maclean and District Orchid Society
HAPPY New Year everyone! Didn’t it come in with a bang? Here’s hoping you and your plants survived and settled.
Our first meeting of the year is on Saturday, January 20 at the Presbyterian Church Hall, Church Street, Maclean.
Our speaker this month, member Beth Organ, will be sharing her in-depth knowledge, so do come along and gain from this.
Orchids Plus has plants to sell too. See Peter.
Plants are benched by 1pm; the meeting begins at 1.30pm after the judging. Lucky door and raffle prizes are included, plus afternoon tea.
At our November meeting, 97 plants were benched.
Both Judges’ Choice Orchid and Popular Vote went to Brian Donaghy’s golden Phalaenopsis Bedford Kaiser King x I’Hsin Sunflower.
Judges’ Choice Flower winner: Neil and Carol Campbell’s Gladioli, while Popular Vote went to Sue King’s Cactus.
The following Saturday on November 25, we all enjoyed our end of year club party at the home of president Terry Bird and wife Penny for a feast, friendship and fun.
Congratulations Ken Woods for winning the introductory workshop quiz, and to Spring Show winners who picked up their engraved trophies.
President Terry thanks all members and supporters for active contribution of goodwill and cheer, for our shared interest in nature’s awesome and varied beauty, and wishes you a healthy and happy 2018.
