This Month's Meeting

Windward Orchid Society's next MEMBERSHIP MEETING is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3rd at 7:30 p.m. in the King Intermediate School Cafeteria.

President's Message

Aloha everyone! 

It is getting closer to our annual Spring Show…and we REALLY need volunteers.  Lots of volunteers.  There is some detailed info included in the newsletter and I hope everyone can give an hour or two or three….to help your society be successful!

For those of you that were at the January meeting – you’ll know what I mean when I say, what an awesome event the Orchid Show at the Tokyo Dome must be.  Thanks to our speaker Roy Andrade, president of the Ewa Orchid Society. We were able to vicariously live through his adventures via the slide show he presented.  Someday, I’d really like to get over there and see it.  Sounds like another thing to add to my bucket list.

I hope to see you all at the February meeting and I hope that you all sign up for the various committees.  This is YOUR society, and we need your help, it is fun and you get to work with great people who also love orchids.  How cool is that?   

See you at the meeting!

- Sheron
