We are back together again!
We are very excited to announce that July 13th Deep Cut Orchid Society members meeting will be IN PERSON. Everyone is invited to join us at the Monmouth Reform Temple at 7:00 PM to meet and greet fellow members and ask culture questions.
The meeting will begin promptly at 7:30 PM, starting with announcements followed by the Show Table and our illustrious guest speaker, David Off, of Waldor Orchids. The title of Dave’s presentation is "You bred what?" - A dive into seedlings and the process of making crosses. Dave will also have plants for sale.
We will observe the state’s COVID 19 guidelines for indoor meetings, which you can find here. Basically, there are no restrictions for those that are vaccinated, and those who are not should wear masks and keep social distancing. Chairs will be spaced such that attendees can move them easily to sit closer or further from others, based on their personal comfort. Refreshments will be limited for this meeting, with bottled water and sealed individual snacks only.
