Orchid Society Party last night

NOID Phaleanopsis - Holiday party gift exchange

The Sonoma County Orchid Society had its holiday party last night. It was at a new restaurant this year and the food and the atmosphere was very nice. There was a gift exchange and door prizes. We had a very good time.

Among the numerous benefits of orchid society membership are the social events. Our orchid society has 5. There is the potting party in the spring, a bus trip and a BBQ in summer, the holiday party in the fall and the show and sale in spring. There are always 2 or 3 open greenhouses each summer.

I think orchid society membership made me a better orchidist by exposing me to new plants and new culture ideas. I have just about an hour to drive to my meeting and I have heard about people driving farther than that. It is very much worth the effort.
