Show & Tell
GUEST SPEAKER Mary Gerritsen
Topic: “Papua New Guinea: A wonderland of orchids, birds and ethnic cultures”
followed by the "Opportunity Table" - chance to win $20 gift certificates to redeem for orchids from Tiny Jungle in Daly City
Show & Tell:
Everyone is encouraged as always to share orchids they have in bloom with the group - though you can try doing it spontaneously with your smartphone/pad camera or computer camera in real time, it works best for us if you take pictures to share ahead of time.
Please send your Show and Tell pics to Lynne by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by NO LATER THAN the day before the meeting to give her time to prepare.
If you have trouble email the picture files you can also upload the pictures directly to our Google Photos Album - but still need to let Lynne know you did so!
Additional How & Tell Guidance:
You can help Lynne optimize the show and tell experience by selecting your top 3 plants to share so we have time to get to everyone’s contributions - label your photo files – or include the names for her to do it for you – and particularly for miniatures, try to include one picture of the flower and one of the plant including a coin or ruler or hand in one of them to help us judge the size.
How do you win an opportunity plant?
Names of all attendees that are paid members of SFOS will have their name included once in the raffle ticket pool to be drawn at the end of the meeting.
1) You must be in attendance at the meeting.
2) You must be a paid member of SFOS - so pay your 2021 dues if you have not done so already
NOTE: You can have your name included in the raffle ticket pool more than once, IF:
You RSVP by calendar or email by noon on the day of the meeting
You participate in Show & Tell by sending photos or video clips in advance by email as outlined above
Prepare and give a brief talk (5-15 min) - any orchid related topic of your choice - but these need to be confirmed in advance - so please let me know if you want to do one at an upcoming meeting.
