Focus Is Now on 2014 Show

The 2014 Honolulu Orchid Society Show is less than a month away.  Show co-chairs Williette Wong and Ben Sills are working hard to make this one of the best shows that the Society has had over the last several years.  Dubbed as the 75th Diamond Jubilee Orchid Show and Plant Sale, Williette and Ben are tinkering with ideas to improve attendance and interest.  The Show will be held from October 10 through October 12 at the Washington Middle School Cafeteria.  Show hours are shown on the poster below.  Society members and friends who wish to help at the Show should contact Williette at 488-2262.  More updates will follow.
