 President's Message


This is the last message for this fiscal year……and fortunately (or unfortunately) you get to read my messages for ANOTHER year!  (I just heard a collective ‘groan’….out there in the universe).  

We have no general meeting this month, instead we have a great event on June 18th – the installation banquet!  If you have not been to one before, I recommend it!  The food is good but the people and the plants that are brought in for raffle are grand!  

After 23+ years as a member of this club,I have to say that I really look forward to meeting and talking to other Orchid growers…..almost more than I enjoy being in the greenhouse puttering around in my orchids.  I said almost.   The past couple of weekends have been a bit rainy, so I am looking forward to more consistent sunny weather to get my orchid fix!  Withdrawals are not pleasant. 

The Board of WOS will have some tough decisions to make over the next fiscal year, so I hope that when we ask for you to volunteer we get your Kokua. 

If you want to hear what upcoming things we as a Board will be considering come to the Banquet for the Annual President report and the Annual Treasurers report.   

We also right now need to know what you want to see/hear at the upcoming meetings?  Please give your ideas to any one of the Board members!

 See you at the Banquet!
