WHAT: 70th Anniversary Celebrations & Memorabilia Night

 - 70 Years of the NZOS
That’s right, this year the NZOS turns 70, and to mark the occasion we are going to have a memorabilia night, so bring along anything that you think might be of interest in regards to the NZOS’s history.
Along the way we have:
1. Hosted the World Orchid Conference
2. In 1959, started a judging system, now recognized by the Royal Horticultural Society
3. Put up displays at various National Shows around the country
4. Published the New Zealand Orchid Review for many years – now incorporated with the Orchid Council Yearbook
5. Brought in many speakers from overseas
6. had various social trips away (see the past few newsletter for some of those)
7. Held a large show for our 50th Anniversary at the Ellerslie Racecourse, attended by many orchid societies around New Zealand
8. Put on exhibitions at the Ellerslie Flower Show – and received a Gold Medal for one, and a Silver for another
So there has to be a lot of things out there amongst those of you who have been part of that history over the years. Bring it along, and let’s look back with pride at what we have done over that time.

The next meeting of the society is the 18th July 2018, commencing at 7.45 pm
