A note from our AOS chair Darlene Rathwell:
For me, as a newbie, the show was wonderful. I leaned so much from members about organization and setup and from the exhibits and exhibitors.
I heard numerous comments about how enchanting the orchids were, how fabulous the displays were and how much visitors liked the show tables and diversity of orchids. It was fun talking to the visitors – there seems to be lots of orchid enthusiasts out there of all degrees.
Thank you to all the contributors and members who helped make our show a success. Thank you, Alexey, for the two wonderful orchids – they were the stars of the silent auction. Also, thank you Laurie and friends for the lovely orchid pots and books. Thank you, Paramount Orchids for the book and plant which also garnered a lot of attention on the auction table.
A big shout out to our 2019 show committee, Darlene, Laurie, Sheila, Valerie and Suzanne. Without the hard work from these members the CVIOS show could not happen.
