AOS News – May 2015

This missive will be a short one this month as I am attending the 2015 American Orchid Society Member Meeting, Show, and Sale in Portland Oregon. It’s very exciting to have this national and international show taking place so close to our home. I’m especially excited to see the internationally-known speakers talking on a huge variety of topics. The show lasts from April 29 – May 3, 2015 and is only a mere $95 for the full weekend!

Don’t forget to check out the AOS awards on the Judging Center website, which have been updated with its region’s awards, as well as the San Joaquin, Modesto and Sacramento shows. Go to http://www.csnjc.org/.

SPECIAL NOTE: Speakers’ Day is Saturday, August 1. Although admission fees and speaker & vendor line-up is still being arranged, there will be a conservation theme. This is a great experience. There are usually a few carpools of members attending. Plan to join-in on the fun. More information to follow as it is made available.
