March 4, 2024 – Orchid Show Preparation

Spring might be just around the corner – or buried under a snow drift, no one can say for sure, depending on the time of day. But what is certain is that the GROS Spring Orchid Show is only a number of weeks away. Our March meeting will feature preparations for the Show: plant registration (more to follow in April), exhibit display building, staging plants, and repotting. Any members who would like to help with an on-site repotting demo need to bring their own mix and materials and are limited to one plant in the interest of time.

We need volunteers to sign up for Show positions! We’ll also be raffling off ten $20 vouchers which can be used to spend with our Show vendors, on Show reception tickets, or for GROS membership dues later in the year.

We’ll be going over a couple officer positions opening up – Program VP and Treasurer. Also, Jeanne Kaeding Memorial Award nominations are due April 1st and the award will be presented at the Annual Picnic.

The Show Table will be back, so please don’t forget to bring your flowering plants! We’ll see you there!

NB: The March meeting will be held at our usual in-person meeting location – The Louis S. Wolk JCC, 1200 Edgewood Avenue, Rochester, NY.
