January Monthly Meeting

This month's monthly meeting will be held on Sunday 18th 2009 at 10.00 am at the residence of Mrs Divya Kirpalani, 30 Pinehurst Avenue, Fairways, Maraval. To reach th Kirpalani's residence, turn off the Saddle Road onto Valleton Avenue, take the first right turn onto Collins Road and on reaching a Guard Hut at the end of the road, turn left onto Fairways Avenue and proceed to a "T" junction which will bring you to Pinehurst Drive and turn right towards the second house on the left.

There will be the usual show table so please bring along your flowering plants.

There will also be a short segment on Orchid Pests and Diseases. If any member has a plant that they think has a disease, they can bring along only a sample cut portion of the diseased part enclosed in a sealed clear plastic bag for further information and advice.

We will have a discussion on Cost Review of the Society's Operations particularly with regards to Refreshments at Monthly Meetings and Mailing of Monthly Newsletters.

Fund Raising

One of the Society's goals for the year 2009 is to raise funds in its continuing quest to acquire a home.

In this regard the Society would like to publish a calendar for the year 2010 consisting of twelve (12) photographs of orchids together with names of each orchid, its owner and the photographer. The Society would like members to contribute to this venture by submitting any input they can. A committee will be formed, and we are inviting many members to participate.
