Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Well, as you all know by now, your Society put together yet another very successful display at the Santa Barbara Show. Many thanks to all who participated - your Society couldn’t have done it without you.

Now on to Even More Fun and Exciting Events

1. Our annual Library Show and Sale has been moved from our traditional first weekend in June to Memorial Day Weekend, Friday through Sunday May 24, 25, and 26. Please mark your calendars and make plans to participate. You can do this by working at the show and/or donating divisions of your plants to the sale. You can also consign your plants for sale with 25% of the sales price going to the Society.

2. Our annual "Tilly Party" which is when we mount your donated tillandsias to driftwood. These are always big sellers at the Library Show.

3. We are planning another Greenhouse/Backyard tour in late September. The date is not set yet but plan to be in town at that time!

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.
