Bingo for Orchids & Ice Cream Social
Tuesday, July 9th – Doors Open at 6:30PM & Meeting Begins at 7:00PM
It’s that time of year again! Please join us for our Annual Bingo for Orchids & Ice Cream Social! What better way to spend a summer’s evening! Socialize and meet new “orchid friends”; create your own ice cream sundae; and play bingo with orchids for prizes.
Due to this special event, there will not be a guest speaker or skill session or show and tell this month.
Here’s how it works:
The society will provide ice cream. We encourage all attendees to bring an ice cream topping to share such as hot fudge, strawberry sauce, any kind of nuts, fruits, berries, cherries, marshmallows, butterscotch, or caramels, whipped cream. The creative ideas are endless.
Bingo cards can be purchased with cash or check or by donating plants.
All donated plants (which are used as prizes) should be named, in good condition and disease and pest free.
$5 = 1 Bingo Card
One Named, Blooming Orchid = 2 Bingo Cards
One Named, Non-Blooming Orchid or Other Plant = 1 Bingo Card
Friends and family are welcome so grab the kids, grandkids and neighbors then come on down! Loads of fun PLUS a great opportunity to add some unique plants to your orchid collection.
