Happy New Year and best wishes for 2017 with successful orchid growing!

For all members of the orchid world, 2017 unfortunately started on a sad note with the passing of Alexander 'Sandy' Gibson on January 2nd. Sandy was an Honorary Member of the TTOS and also one of our Trustees with great knowledge and willingness to share his knowledge on any specie of orchid or plant. We send our sincere condolences to his family.
We also send our condolences to Jassodra Sooklal on the passing of Keshwar Maharaj during the Christmas season. Kesh was a previous member of the TTOS who served on the Management Committee. He was also very knowledgeable and shared his experiences and growing styles with everyone.
At the next meeting here will be a Raffle of an orchid at $5.00 per chance. 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. Winning members get to feature their plants in the following newsletter.
