At the August meeting, a panel composed of the following members will be available to answer your questions about orchid culture: Drew Goddard (Phalaenopsis), Ben Boers (Cattleya), Chris Varady (Dendrobium), Rob Vanderheyden (Catasetum) and Pat Vuurman (Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium). Maybe you don’t have questions, but you have tips of your own to pass along based on your experience as a grower. Great! Moderator Lynda Vuurman will, in her sole discretion, award raffle tickets for meritorious suggestions. This is also an opportunity to interact with the Society executive by proposing names of speakers you would like to hear at future meetings, topics that interest you, and other input of a constructive nature. The meeting will take place in room 5 (subject to confirmation), Royal Botanical Gardens, 680 Plains Road W., Burlington, Ontario. The formal meeting begins at 2 pm but you are invited to arrive any time after 1 pm to socialize and interact with vendors. Members and guests welcome.
The Annual OSRBG Picnic/BBQ will be held at Nancy’s home in Dundas. Arrival is any time after noon. Members and significant others are invited. Address information has been sent to all members via email. If other details are needed, please contact any member of the Executive. “Basics” (hamburgers and sausages) are being provided by the Society, but members are invited to bring salads, desserts etc. to supplement the menu. Plants or other orchid-related items for the raffle are appreciated. Lawn chairs are also a good idea!
