June 2016 Monthly Meeting

The Jacksonville Orchid Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month (except in May and December) at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 1005 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204. The doors open at 7 pm. There is a culture class for beginner and new growers that begins at 7 pm. The general program begins at 7:30. We have a brief business meeting, serve refreshments, listen to a presentation by an orchid expert, participate in a raffle, and look at many beautiful flowers brought in by our members. Guests and visitors are always welcome!

Fred Clark of Sunset Valley Orchids will be our  featured speaker for the evening of 14 June.  Tentatively, Fred will be discussing the “Becoming an 80 Percent Grower.”  Personally, I’m not sure what an “80 Percent Grower” is, but I certainly plan to be there to find out!  Fred has spoken for us before and as previously, I expect this to be a very informative presentation – Bring Lots of writing materials if you intend to take Notes!


Fred has also offered Society Members a 10% discount on all pre-orders received not later than Memorial Day!

See You Soon,
