2020 04 13 April Newsletter - AOC show cancelled

This month's newsletter announces the decision to cancel this year's AOC show which was scheduled in June.  Very sad and many of you folks may be disappointed but the health of everybody is the utmost priority.  Orchids will continue to flower, you know it!

When you get a chance, take a look at HOS website.  They are posting bunch of breathtaking photos of members' orchids as the series.  Thanks HOS for all your efforts to entertain us at home 💖

2020 March Newsletter

This newsletter is being sent for information purposes only. The March 23 meeting has been cancelled as previously announced.

The Kunia Orchid Show and the Windward Orchid Show have both been canceled because of the virus pandemic.

We miss you all, but we'll see you again soon, to enjoy beautiful orchids together, so don't worry! It's the perfect time to stay home and take care of your plants, pull out weeds (which is probably way overdue), etc. and do things at home which you procrastinated for all these years while busy socializing outside.

I got to rearrange a few things in the kitchen, went through some drawers and threw out things I don't even know why I still had, and fixed things I should have long time ago. So, we can be active even at home. Tai Chi or Yoga in your living room? Way to go!
