SPEAKER OF THE MONTH
Sheron Harwood on general orchid culture with a twist!
Sheron is our Treasurer. She gave a general orchid culture workshop at the WOS's Valentine's Day Show at the Windward Mall on February 14, 15 & 16, 2014. Many volunteers showed up to help promote our March Show. We gave away hundreds of tickets to our show, while telling folks all about our club. Sheron gave a general orchid culture workshop each of the three days at 1:00 p.m. Just look at her huge audience! Before Sheron talks about general orchid culture, we will introduce Christy Martin, a University of Hawaii Pubic Information Officer, who will give us a talk on the Little Fire Ant . Stinging ants that are new to Hawaii, and spreading, they infest yards and agricultural fields and will move into houses. They cause painful welts and intense itching that lasts.
GORGEOUS COLORS OF ORCHIDS
"Our Spring Show is just around the corner and we need all members to volunteer during our show in order to make it a success. We would like you to sign up for the various committee's for at least one shift. You will receive a WOS T-shirt if you volunteer for 8 or more hours. You may sign-up for one or more of the committee's, they are: Host and Hostess, Cashier, Country Store, Membership, Security, Admissions, Set-up, Clean-up, Plant Identification, Transportation and WOS Display. We also need volunteers to put up signs on the road during the week of the show. We would like you to save boxes and newspaper and bring them starting Wednesday, March 19 the day we set-up at King School. We will need your flowering plants for our display, the more the merrier, no matter how small or large. We had a new member last year who happened to have her orchid bloom during the show and she won an award. It can happen to you, so don't be shy, bring your blooming orchid and we will put it in our display. We need you, so sign up or call Susan Lim at 728-1014."
