Here we are again, ready for our annual Solstice Party. Has the year gone by so fast?
As always, CAIOS displays not only great orchids, but amazing delicious delicacies envied by Orchid Societies worldwide ... ok, that of course is an exaggeration. Not every orchid society has been to our party. ;-}
There will be no "Show" table this meeting, but feel free to bring a festive plant to decorate our dining tables.
As a suggestion; Members A to F -- Salads, G to N -- Main dishes , and O to Z – Desserts.
However, as always, your personal favorite dish or desert is welcome no matter what letter of the alphabet you hale from.
We have an amazing assortment of new & only slightly used orchids available. Many of our Orchid Show venders have generously supplied us with fuel for our orchaholism, to which we can vigorously bid.
Also, members who have down sized their collections have donated well loved plants which desperately need new homes.
CASH and Checks accepted.
Please remember, this is a win win situation. You bid, you win - we win. How? All money collected at the auction helps keep CAIOS afloat. The auction enables us to help support meeting speakers and the coffee through our contributions.
(You really didn't think we did this all for $20 a year?)
If you don't have room for another plant ... win one anyway ... gift it to another member ... Happy Holidays ... wouldn't that be a great tradition to start?
Look for the Auction list in our upcoming Newsletter. Don't get the Newsletter? It's a benefit of membership. For more information, or to renew your membership, click here.
