General Meeting: Sunday January 17, 2021

Our January 17th OSRBG meeting will feature glimpses into how some of our members grow orchids. Linda Will, Daniel Scher, Sandra Micucci, Wendy Hearder-Moan, and Rob Vanderheyden will present about how they grow the orchids in their collections, with photos and commentary. There will be time with each presentation to ask questions. As usual, we will have our Virtual Orchid Show Table. If you have orchids blooming now, send photos with identifying information (and how you grow, if you like) to Rob at by 7 p.m. on Friday January 15th. As has become customary, the meeting will take place via Zoom, with an invitation being sent to members a week or so in advance. The formal meeting starts at 2 pm and Rob will “open the doors” around 1:30 for those who wish to sign on early to socialize.
