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
