Happy October everyone! Here is Ed's October 2021 CJOS Newsletter.
We hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful crisp autumn weather! Now is a perfect time to bring any orchids outside into warmer indoor spaces. Hopefully, everyone has had time to clean their indoor spaces in preparation for reduced waterings and semi-dormancy for many different orchid species. It is also a great time to catch steep discounts from many online orchid vendors (Halloween, Black Friday, Christmas, and New Year Sales)!
Sadly, as most of you have now been informed, the decision was made to postpone the orchid auction. Due to unforeseen events and busy day-to-day lives, we were unable to meet the original November 2021 deadline for the event. We have not officially decided on a new makeup date, but we will inform all CJOS members when this has been determined.
As of October 2021, CJOS will now hold In-Person and virtual Zoom meetings on a monthly basis! This decision was voted on and decided by the majority of good-standing CJOS members and the CJOS Board. We respect those that may not feel comfortable meeting in person at this time; hence the dual virtual meeting option. Please check the website and your email regularly for continued CJOS updates and Zoom links! We hope everyone is staying safe during this continued COVID-19 Pandemic!
