This year’s 30th Anniversary Show and Sale, “Kona’s Orchids through Time,” is next month! Mark your calendars from 8 AM until 2 PM on Sunday, July 22. If you haven’t already signed up for a show committee, now is the time! Remember that your help will be needed on both Saturday for setup and Sunday for the Show and Sale.
Start thinking about your orchids and getting them ready for the Show. The Greeters are already busy making bows for the beautiful corsages that we hand out at the door.
For the center display, we are bringing back the volcano with different greenery, which is sure to make a hit again. Joyce asked for any new ideas for the volcano, other than water or dry ice which haven’t worked. She also needs ferns in pots.
Carol’s special display this year will feature Tom Kadooka and his crosses, with special attention given to Vanda Miss Joaquim. If anyone has a place setting from the 1950’s from either the Kona Inn or the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, please let Carol know.
Vanda Miss Joaquim will also be the focus of a thirtieth anniversary pin to be designed by Ellen and Nora. The new pin will have the same size and shape as our previous pins.
