NWOS Members Summer Picnic

2021 Summer Picnic

This year’s Summer picnic was a lovely first for our group.  A first because it was the first time we met in person since February of 2020.

Hosted by NWOS president, Joe Grienauer, we gathered in several areas outside.  It included a tent in the side yard and tables and chairs in the backyard.  Our sumptuous potluck fare was laid out inside in the kitchen.  There was plenty for everyone, with a wonderful choice of dishes, both sweet and savory.  There was even some homemade brew.

Luckily the warm weather was nice and not too hot.  Members mingled around getting re-acquainted and sharing stories of our time apart.

There were plants for sale from Yoshi.   But there were also a lot of lovely orchids donated so that others could take one or two to try their hand at growing them.  A special thanks to Joff for his extreme generosity.  Joff also brought quite a few cymbidiums donated from the Woodland Park Zoo collection to share with us.  I hope he found a home for those really big ones!

Several new members joined us, and it was nice getting to know them. So, all in all, it was a very nice afternoon spent reconnecting friends and fellow orchid lovers.
