For our November meeting, accredited AOS judge John Dunkelberger will be our speaker, presenting “Andean Oncidium Breeding – Some New Directions and Thoughts”. John has degrees in both Biochemistry and Bacteriology, and has worked as a chemist, chemical engineer, lumberman, logger, and consultant.

John has been an American Orchid Society judge since 1972 and has served as a judge at our Spring Shows many times. He has been an avid grower of orchids for more than 50 years, and currently specializes in Cymbidiums and Odontoglossums/Oncidiums.

Prior to the meeting, we will be taking the Dunkelbergers to dinner at Mamasans in Pittsford at 5:00. If you’d like to join us (everyone pays for his or her own meal) please contact Kim Hober by Saturday, Nov 4th.

John has graciously consented to allow members bring in their own plants for sale or trade at the November meeting, whether or not he does bring sale plants himself.
