June Orchid Auction!
President’s Message:
June is our first full auction of 2008. We will have many interesting plants from around the world. Bring your cash and checkbooks, as this is our primary revenue source. Your generous participation in the auctions permits us to bring in knowledgeable and entertaining speakers (such as Harry from Andy’s Orchids in May). Each member should bring in a dish (appetizer, main course, or dessert) large enough for at least 6 people. LIOS will provide the wine, beer and soda, along with the paper goods. The eating will begin at about 6:30pm with the auction at 7:30-7:45. As in the past we will have a special “Chinese” auction, featuring individual raffles for each of several special plants. You can buy as many tickets as you like and put them all on a particular plant that you “must” have or you spread them around, giving you a wider chance of winning. We will also have a special Show Table. Bring in one blooming orchid that is dazzling and have it compete against your fellow members’ best plants. The winner receives a special prize.
