General Meeting: Sunday November 15, 2020

In keeping with recent practice, our November meeting will take place via Zoom, and members will be receiving an email invitation to attend. Contact Rob Vanderheyden at orchidataosrbg@gmail.com if you don’t receive one prior to the meeting (glitches do sometimes occur).

Mark Whelan will be our speaker for this meeting and his presentation is on Cypripediums. Mark is a retired professor of computer studies and a member of the Windsor Orchid Society for seven years. He is an Associate American Orchid Society Judge who has assisted with judging at our Annual Show and at AOS outreach judging events held at RBG and has spoken previously to our group. Mark grows Cymbidiums, Bulbophyllums, Cattleyas, Catasetum types, Cypripdiums and some miscellaneous orchids.

There will also be a virtual Show Table at our meeting. Please forward photos of your orchids currently in bloom to Rob Vanderheyden at the address noted above by 6 pm on Friday November 13.

The formal meeting starts at 2 pm but Rob will open the doors, so to speak, about 1:30 so you can sign on and chat with fellow members.
