This lovely yellow phalaenopsis was one of the gift plants that each member received at our Holiday Party. Nile and Lois Dusdieker took it to Chicago monthly judging where it was awarded.
The Eastern Iowa Orchid Society (EIOS), formerly the Iowa City Orchid Society, is as our logo states “A small group of people with a big love of growing orchids”. Members come from all around eastern Iowa.
We hope 2022 will turn out to be a more normal year with in person club meetings and attendance at several regional orchid shows. We meet at the Shueyville United Methodist Church, Shueyville, Iowa.
The church is located 1 mile EAST of Exit 10 (Swisher-Shueyville) off interstate 380. Our meetings begin with a social time at 6:30 pm; followed by the official meeting and an educational program at 7:00 pm. Meetings are free and open to anyone interested in orchids! Our club displays orchids at regional orchid shows and participates in American Orchid Society orchid judging. Meetings include educational programs on beginning orchid growing, discussion about various types of orchids, and orchid conservation.
Our newsletters highlight activities of the society. They contain photos of member's orchids, educational material, and summary of meeting activities.
Our next meeting will be Feb. 3rd. Andy Coghill-Beherends, our President, will share his experiences recently in Costa Rica. This will be a ZOOM meeting with invites send via email. One may also request an invitation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We will not have a January meeting. Orchid shows in the Mid-west are again cancelling due to the Covid spread. We do plan to exhibit at the Illinois and Batavia shows in Mid-Feb. if they are held. We encourage members to contribute plants for our exhibits. More details on subsequent emails to our Google Group.
