Happy New Year Everyone! Here is Ed's January 2021 CJOS Newsletter.
We hope everyone is staying safe during this continued COVID-19 Pandemic! CJOS will continue to hold virtual Zoom meetings on a monthly basis (until further notice)! No on-site meetings have been decided as of January 2021. [February 2021 meeting details]. As soon as meeting/event information becomes available, Zoom meetings will be announced via email to CJOS members and posted on the CJOS website. Please check the website and your email regularly for continued updates!
*George Wallace will be speaking in February 2021. He is an avid orchid grower and active CJOS Member/Website Admin. The topic is 'A Night with George'.

*** Thoughtful Pandemic Advice ***
First and foremost, let's treat each other with kindness and be there for family and friends to the best of our ability (while still maintaining social distancing, as deemed necessary). Secondly, please stay home when possible except for essential jobs and acquiring food/water as necessary. If you need to go outside, please do so with proper social distancing measures in place. Go for a walk in the park or go visit the mountains (away from crowds). And finally, enjoy some time with your orchids! Now is a perfect time to clean your growing areas (greenhouse, indoor shelves, etc...). It is also a perfect time to go through your plants and inspect them for pests, rearrange plant locations (based on current growth), and to repot those long overdue plants with souring media! :-)
There will not be any CJOS Meetings until we are able to meet safely. Stay Safe!
