Next Meeting: Oct. 6, 2014: Ron McHatton: "Orchids of Madagascar"
Our speaker for October will be Ron McHatton, Director of Education & Regional Operations at American Orchid Society. Just back from spending nearly a month in Africa, Ron will be presenting "Orchids of Madagascar."
A chemist by training, Ron had served as a production manager for Kerry's Bromeliad Nursery, one of the largest wholesale orchid nurseries in the U.S. He has been growing orchids for more than 43 years and has an eclectic collection of plants representing a wide cross-section of the orchid family. Ron has grown orchids in about every environment you could imagine - from windowsills to under lights to greenhouses running from a 200 square foot hobby house to several acres of commercial growing space. Over the years his private collection has numbered in excess of 2,500 plants. Mr. McHatton is also an accredited American Orchid Society judge and has been volunteering for the AOS in many different capacities for over 25 years.
We'll be taking Ron out to dinner (everyone pays for his or her own dinner - except for Ron!) at the Tandoor of India restaurant in the Jefferson Plaza across from the Southtowne Plaza. (It's the same place where we had our Christmas party a few years back; the food is good and they also have a good selection of vegetarian dishes from which to choose.
