Next Meeting: Holiday Bash – Dec. 4, 2023
Aside from the usual grazing and schmoozing that are typical of our annual GROS holiday “extravaganzas”, this year we’ll have trivia games with prizes, club-supplied pizza, including gluten-free and vegetarian styles, and our usual member-supplied dishes to pass. You can pretty much bring anything you’d like, with the exceptions of alcoholic beverages, pork or shellfish.
In order to participate in the trivia games, members should download the Kahoot! learning app on their smartphones (both iOS and Android versions are available) prior to the meeting. You do not need to sign up for a Kahoot! account in order to download the app.
The Show Table will hopefully be in full holiday regalia, so please bring in your flowering plants for everyone to admire! Watch your email for late-breaking party details.
Save the Date!
Annual Orchid Show
April 25-28, 2024
The Genesee Region Orchid Society (GROS) is a 501(c) non-profit organization based in Rochester, NY.
Our regular meeting night is the first Monday following the first Sunday of each month. We occasionally change the meeting date as our schedule requires, but we always list the correct date well in advance both on this website and in our monthly newsletter. Our meetings are open to everyone without charge – feel free to attend and find out what our Society is all about!
Meetings typically consist of a brief business meeting to conduct our club’s routine activities, a special presentation on an orchid subject, an orchid raffle (2 tickets for $1), and a Show Table where members can display their flowering plants for everyone to see. For more information, please contact any of our officers.
