It’s coming! It’s coming!
Instead of our usual monthly speaker, for December we will be repeating last year’s very popular party/potluck. Chef Paula Shiu will be providing roast turkey and vegetarian lasagna, and our members (you) will provide side dishes like salads, veggies, desserts, beverages, etc. And yams! Mmmm! Although we will have paper plates, cups, and plastic cutlery available, we ask that you also bring your own service if possible to cut down on the amount of waste we produce. We will provide cards to label your dish and list some ingredients for those with dietary concerns.
Old Saint Norchid will be giving a nice little plant to each attending member who has been good all year… well, maybe even if you haven’t been so good. Plants will be provided by Bob Hamilton, John Leathers, and Fred Clarke (Sunset Valley Orchids) – Thank you!
When you arrive, be sure to get a ticket at the member table for the gift drawing.
We will also be having an orchid exchange drawing, which will be optional. If you wish to participate, bring a plant or orchid related item (or two or three). Please label it with your name and some info about it, so that the person who receives it can talk to you about it. Be sure to get a ticket for that too.
If that isn’t enough, there will also be a door prize or two. So be sure to get your ticket for that too. Whew! All those tickets!
And we will have our usual wonderful Show and Tell table, so bring in your plants!
Let’s all have a fun time, and celebrate the end of another great year: two very successful shows, and a year of interesting and informative speakers.
We need an accurate count of attendees, so please RSVP.
