Februrary Update With The Society

Robert Culver, began the meeting by welcoming our new members. Our speaker, Tennis Maynard, joined via Zoom from Ohio so we moved directly into our Speaker Presentation at that point in deference to the time in his time zone.

Tennis spoke on Trichopilias, a genus which is rarely seen in cultivation. He covered many of the species, their cultural needs and some of the primary hybrids produced by these plants. At the end of his presentation he took a number of questions from the audience.

Robert then thanked the volunteers and everyone else involved with the 2022 fall show. The NWOS was the recipient of the AOS Show Trophy for our display at our fall show. Again, thank you everyone for all your effort and the wonderful plants.

Joe Grienauer updated the club on the status of the 2023 Northwest Flower and Garden Festival. Joe also put out the call for more volunteers.

Ben Johnson updated the club on the status of the 2023 Spring Show. At this time we are working towards a 2024 Spring Show and Ben is looking for volunteers. Contact if you’re interested in being on the Events Committee.

Bill Leicht asked for a volunteer to help with transactions at sales etc. Mike Cory graciously offered to help Bill.

We are in our new Membership Year. While we work on the new Membership System please continue to renew using PayPal.

Andy Wright covered our Plant Table for us, while Sean Hoyt was our photographer and videographer and Julian Banbury joined Sean taking Photos.

The February Meeting will be our Annual Auction. The date and location have moved. It is Saturday February 25, 1:00 AM at the Shoreline Community College Student Union (Building 9000).
