The Honolulu Orchid Society held its 72nd Annual Orchid Show on October 7-9, 2011 at the Washington Middle School Cafeteria.  Show Chairman Williette Wong greeted the line of people waiting to enter the Show on opening day.  It was the start of many good things to come.  The weather during the entire weekend was nice and sunny and the stream of people visiting the Show during the three days was a delight to see.  The eleven vendors were very happy to see people browsing their booths and purchasing plants.  The sales area surrounded five beautiful displays put up by the Aiea Orchid Club, the Windward Ochid Society, the Hawaii Kai Orchid Society, the Honolulu Orchid Society and Hui Okika O Kunia.  Hui Okika O Kunia won the best display trophy.  Their display is shown in the photograph above.  Orchid culture lectures were held during the Show.  These lectures were well attended as people were very interested in growing orchids.

Next year’s Show will be held at the same location on October 5-7. 2012.
