April 3rd 2014 Newsletter

 We meet at the Moana Landscape and Design Center at  7:00 PM
1100 West Moana Lane in Reno

Presidents Message:

We all have times when we realize we have too many of one variety of orchid or an orchid has outgrown its pot and needs dividing or that the ‘miniature’ has become too large. Perhaps you have a plant that is just not happy in your windowsill but would be happy in someone’s greenhouse.

The April meeting is your chance to sell it or work a trade with other OSNN members. Bring your orchids that need a new home. You can bring as many plants as you wish. This meeting will combine sales, trades and socializing. Members can negotiate among themselves. OSNN will not charge a percentage.

Don’t forget to bring your ‘show-and-tell’ plants. Also, circle May 3-4 on your calendar for our show and sale at Rail City Garden Center. This is another important event that allows OSNN to bring growers and other orchid experts to Reno.
–Taeko Heiser

 Hospitality:  With its focus on OSNN’s social side, April’s meeting promises to be a most pleasurable one for all of us. Naturally, having something to munch on as we mingle, and meeting our new members, will add to the fun.
