Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society


The Monthly President's Message:

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Lots of excitement coming up with your Society Since we are gearing up for our annual Library Show and Sale, we need everyone to keep grooming their potential display plants as well as any that they want to donate to the sale or put on consignment. Please see instructions for consignment plants below. Driftwood has been collected for the annual Tilly Party, Saturday May 26 all are welcome, more details later. AND we are planning a Greenhouse Tour for Saturday September 29. This is a backyard tour of several of our members homes to view how they grow their orchids. Having a greenhouse is not a requirement as many of our members do not have one and grow wonderful plants. We will end the tour at my house for a wonderful barbecue!

See you at the meeting,
Kathy


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
