A Message From Our President
Dear WOS Members,
Unfortunately, we had to make a really tough decision and cancel our 40th Annual Spring Orchid Show.
With the Coronavirus still lingering with no cure in sight, we felt that the safety of our volunteers, vendors, speakers, and the public was our top priority.
The Orchid Show is our primary money-maker to keep the club at status quo. We are going to have to cut expenses somewhere. This is where the membership can help with ideas and suggestions on how to make money and/or cut expenses.
We need everyone's support to help keep our club going strong. Renew your membership early, donate when you can, help at the meetings and most of all show your appreciation by attending our meetings and events when it is safe to resume them again.
Special thanks to our Show Chair, Susan Lim, WOS board members, and committee chairs for everything you do to support our society and members.
To our vendors, we sincerely apologize for the last-minute cancellation. We'll work to think of ways for you to sell some of your plants and hopefully recover some expenses.
Both the Kunia officers and Windward officers are looking at what would be best for our societies; which goes to show we can lean on each other in good times and bad times.
Our President, Governor, Mayor, and Dept. of Health are requesting groups to cancel any events and activities with large crowds of people. We felt we needed to do our part.
We hope the cancellation of April's Membership Meeting and Saturday Workshop will help you stay healthy and keep you safe. Hopefully, we can come back in May and make the rest of 2020 SPECTACULAR!!!
Craig Nakahara, WOS President
