Venue: Horticultural Society of Trinidad and Tobago building, Port of Spain

This month we will be having two dynamic presentations:

1. Greenhouse construction by Antonio de Gannes
2. Orchid Pest and Disease by Angie Ford. If you have any plants that are "sick" you can bring the diseased leaves in a SEALED clear plastic bag and pictures of the plant for us to diagnose.

The monthly raffle of an orchid is back. Will this month be your month to win it?

Don't forget to bring along your flowering orchids for the Monthly Show Table especially those new members to win your plant prizes.

President's Message

I would like to thank the previous management committee for their year of service and support towards the Trinidad and Tobago Orchid Society. Without your time and dedication the TTOS would be no longer. I also send special appreciation to Joan Hampton and Robin Naipaul for their many years of serving on the Management Committee as they did not want to be re-nominated this year. Thank you BOTH for all the time spent building and servicing the TTOS.

This new year in the TTOS I hope that more members will become active members and assist the society move forward. Please do not let the Management be responsible for everything. I urge you to become part of sub-committees for shows, for helping us find a home, setting out chairs or even helping with the catering for meetings. It is OUR society, let us all help it grow!
