Meetings

Meetings: Occur the 2nd Tuesday of the month from September to June. Except for June, which is our annual banquet, The doors open at our meeting site at 7 PM. Over the next 30 minutes members bring in Orchids from their collections and set them up on tables at the side of the hall. From 7:30-8:00, while these orchids are being judged by a team of judges, there are soft drinks, coffee, snacks and plenty of socializing. It is a great time to ask members about any specific questions you might have about orchid culture or review materials from our extensive library. At 8:00, we have a short business meeting and by 8:10 we introduce our speaker. The speaker talks for about 45-50 minutes and then we have a short question and answer session. From 9:00 to 9:20 we review the show table, announce our raffle winners as well as hand out any door prizes.  We almost always have great door prizes!! Please come and join us (new members go home with a free plant!!)

We normally meet at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church located at 1006 Wilson Road, Wilmington
(Abbreviated directions: Take exit 9 from Route 95 in Delaware. Travel north on Marsh Rd for 1.4 miles, turn left on Wilson Road. Travel 0.5 miles and Emmanuel Presbyterian Church will be on your left).
