Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Our September Greenhouse and Garden Tour turned out really great. Bill Gunning did a superb job of routing the participants so that the groups were kept to a manageable number. And a shoutout to Chiyoko Tanger, Leslie Naines-Brown, and Vicky Price for showing us their collections. The barbecue at the end was a special treat enjoyed by all. It's always wonderful to get together and be able to visit with each other in a relaxed setting. We will have another such opportunity at our Holiday Party in November.

Our Culture meeting last month seems to have been enjoyed by all, and I would like to thank our wonderful presenters Eva, Joe, and Jeff again. I think we all learned something that we will be able to apply to our own collections.

Our next meeting promises to be a particularly interesting one. James Rose from Cal-Orchid will speak on a subject that I am very keen to know more about. Read more about it in the rest of this newsletter!

See you at the meeting!

About Us:

The Conejo Orchid Society (COS) was formed to provide a setting where orchid devotees could meet to share their enthusiasm and knowledge, assist one another with orchid culture, and learn from invited experts. What we all have in common is a love of orchids and a desire for orchid knowledge. Members are encouraged to bring their blooming plants for display and judging. In addition there is a raffle of beautfiul plants at each meeting.

We meet the second Monday of each month from Janurary through November at 7PM at the Westlake Village Town Hall. In November our meeting is replaced by a holiday party.

Cymbidium Cattleya Oncidium Phalaenopsis Bulbophyllum Miltonia
