Our Vice President, Angelique, has a very special program for our January meeting. Many of you have not been able to attend Speaker’s Day, held every August and sponsored by the Sacramento Orchid Society. At that event, American Orchid Society judges judge member plants and discuss with the audience their reasons for awarding or not awarding a plant an AOS award. A very interesting and educational event.
Our January meeting will host a panel of American Orchid Society judges from the California Sierra-Nevada Judging Center which will judge SCOS member plants. Bring a plant for judging!
