​​​We had a very successful Zoom meeting on the 8th.    It was great meeting several people who joined the Society at the Show and Tell last year.  The majority of the meeting time was spent on self introductions and show and tell of blooming orchids.    


Our next meeting will be on March 8 at 6:30 p.m. again (2nd Monday of the month), and will feature a grower in Michigan.  Dr. Kristen Uthus is the owner of New World Orchids, located in Manchester, MI.  She will be speaking on miniature orchids.  If you are a member, the Zoom link will be e-mailed to you.  Non-members--please send your request using the e-mail address  under Contact on this website.  We are investigating the possibilities of ordering prior to the talk. 


Stay tuned!
