Next meeting July 18
Laura Newton, Award Registrar for the American Orchid Society will be the speaker at our next meeting on Saturday July 18. Laura is in charge of everything to do with orchid awards.
"I have been growing Orchids for the past 10 years and quickly became addicted. I earned my very first award almost 6 years ago (the very first plant that I ever took in for judging) and have garnered 53 awards total since then. I love growing a wide range of Orchids and have over 100 genera in my collection currently. I have been honored by two fabulous growers to have two hybrids named for me and I have begun creating my own hybrids. Most importantly l am a grower and lover of Orchids just like everyone else, so I am always willing to tell anyone who will listen, all the fabulous things that I know about this wonderful family of plants."
Laura will be bringing plants to sell and of course will bring plenty of her Plant Potion.
We encourage anyone in the tri-county area around Spring Hill to come and visit one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm at the Oak Hill Partner's Club. You don't need a reservation, just show up. You will find the Orchid Lover's Club a wealth of information. You may be an experienced grower or just have a curiosity about orchids, either way you will find the club to be fun, helpful, friendly and educational.
In addition to regular monthly meetings, with knowledgeable speakers, the Club sponsors tours of tri-county growers and over night travel to international shows, greenhouses and lectures. We also have a yearly orchid Festival, a Christmas Luncheon, an orchid Auction and an annual picnic.
