November Update With The Society

President Steve Dorsey opened the meeting and welcomed new members. He briefly introduced our speaker Tyler Albrecht and our topic for the evening, Fluffy and Puffy Parvisepalum Paphiopedilums. Steve then went out to talk about our recent fall show and thank everyone that had participated to make the show a success. We all got to see the fantastic video that Sean Hoyt produced for us summarizing the show and sale.

Joe Grienauer and Steve solicited for an additional volunteer to help with the audit committee. Joe then spoke to us about the vision for our installation for the 2023 Flower and Garden Festival and our participation in it. He will be reaching out to us to get volunteers to help design and build it. Additionally, please return the library books.
