Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Greetings Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Well, wasn't that another great Huntington show? Thanks so much to all of you who helped and attended. I'm still recovering but am very happy with the way everything turned out. Of course, I didn't buy any plants (LOL)!

As you all know, our final "meeting" of the year is coming up - our Holiday Party on Tuesday November 13 at the Thousand Oaks Elk's Lodge. Be sure you have signed up, you don't want to miss it.

As we bring another wonderful year of the COS. to a close, I'd just like to say how great it has been being your president these past three years. You are such a great group and have been so much fun to work and play with that, you guessed it, I'll be president AGAIN in 2019. Hope that doesn't scare any of you off!

Next year is already shaping up to be another exciting one: we have several speakers lined up, plans are in the works for the Santa Barbara show in March and our annual June Library Show and Sale. We have lots of wonderful people involved in these and other events and want YOU to get involved too. It's lots of fun and we don't want you to miss out - contact any of the officers for more information if you'd like to be included in the fun.

See you at the Party.

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

Upcoming Events:

Holiday Dinner Party Tuesday, November 13 at 7 p.m., cocktail hour with appetisers at 6 p.m.
