This Month's Meeting

Windward Orchid Society's next MEMBERSHIP MEETING is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th at 7:30 p.m. in the King Intermediate School Cafeteria.

   President's Message

Aloha everyone!

Summer is almost over. We've avoided a few hurricanes and have only had to deal with a lot of water. I hope everyone has managed to stay dry and your orchids have survived!

I was just on the mainland for a business trip and visited Sacramento with a few days in San Francisco. I was pleased to see orchids wherever I went! All the hotels, restaurants and retail shops had lots of orchids on display.

When I was coming home via the SF Airport - walked up to the Hawaiian Airlines check in and noticed an orchid at every check in station. I thought....nice. Then looked around and the ENTIRE airport, all the different airlines, had an orchid at each and every check in station, I saw hundreds of orchids just at the one terminal. It was a joy to see the 'invasion' of orchids everywhere!

I look forward to the upcoming months, Auction Night in November and then it's a race to the Holidays.

Stay Dry and I'll see you all at the Meeting!
