Next Meeting: Monday December 3, 2018
The GROS Holiday Party!
Our next meeting will be Monday, December 3, 2018, at the Jewish Community Center. No Beginner’s Meeting in December; the main meeting begins at 7:15pm.
After a quick business meeting and some announcements, Jeanne Kaeding will be giving a short presentation on her experience with LED lighting. Then following, there will be mingling and refreshments – the party!
The Holiday Party is our annual celebration of food, fun and orchids. Everyone who attends will receive a free raffle ticket. If you bring food or drink to share (sweet or savory), you will receive another free raffle ticket. For every blooming orchid you bring, you will also receive a free raffle ticket. Kim Hober will present another of her famous “name that orchid” presentations – yet another way to earn free raffle tickets. Everyone who shows up is guaranteed to get some free raffle tickets in one way or another. Since since we’re limiting the winners to one plant apiece, your changes of getting a free orchid are really pretty good! Kim has ordered extra orchid plants to be raffled off, as well.
The Show Table will be back, of course, but most of the time will be devoted to socializing. Here is your chance to talk during a meeting without having your pesky President calling you to order!
As we will not be having an outside speaker in December, members are free to bring in their own plants for sale or trade.
So, bring some food, bring your blooming plants, come and have fun, maybe win a plant or two. Sue, our Treasurer, will be distributing the raffle tickets as you walk in the door, so make sure that you check in with her.
