American Orchid Society Members’ Meeting October 18, 2009

Norman’s Orchids is pleased to announce that the next American Orchid Society Members’ Meeting, in conjunction with the Southlands Orchid Show Committee – celebrating its 50th anniversary - will be held at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA. Open to the public from October 16-18, this show promises elaborate orchid displays by commercial and amateur growers from around the world. General Admission to the Huntington includes admission to the Show. For further information on this event, including hours.

For those wishing to attend the lectures and special events, including the Preview Party, an AOS fund-raising auction and a Saturday Night Banquet, all of which are planned for the AOS Members’ Meeting, the official Schedule of Events and detailed Registration information, including One-Day Registrations, can be found at this link. In addition to the AOS events, many of the AOS affiliated special interest groups will also be holding their semi-annual meetings in conjunction with the show: the International Phalaenopsis Alliance, the Slipper Orchid Alliance, the Cymbidium Society of America and the Pleurothallid Alliance.

As a sponsor of the AOS and in celebration of this upcoming event, Norman’s Orchids will host an “AOS Sunday” on Sunday, October 18, from 10 AM – 4 PM. It will be a great opportunity for those who visit the nursery to spend some time with other AOS orchid hobbyists who have come from all corners of the globe to attend the AOS/Southlands Meeting.

As a special treat for all our AOS friends, our sales area will be stocked with many brand new introductions. In addition, we are planning a special offer for AOS members only. We are just a short drive from the Huntington and look forward to welcoming everyone for what promises to be a very special orchid day.
