death of his father and to the family of member Mr. Neal Mookram who passed
away just days before our April 2008 orchid show. Mr. Mookram was a long
standing member. He showed much interest in our shows and frequently handled
the construction portfolio, exhibited at our meetings and shows and he
requested that his funeral collection be donated to the Society.
