This beautiful Cypripedium Gisela 'Island View' was grown by our President, Andy Coghill-Behrends and received the highest cultural award at May Chicago AOS judging (Certificate of Cultural Excellence) 92 points. This time of year many of our orchids love to grow outside and store up energy for blooming to come.
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.
Pending the COVID-19 VIRUS STATUS: we plan to assume normal in person club activities. I suspect most members are vaccinated but we will observe social distancing and masks optional.
This September we will meet on the second Thursday 9/9/21 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 September meeting will be Sept. 9th - the Thursday after Labor Day, at the Shueyville Church. Program will be a open discussion of how to grow orchids with input from all those present. We also will be planning details for our upcoming Orchid Show, October 23-24, 2021.
WE ENCOURAGE ALL TO ATTEND - PAID MEMBERS WILL RECEIVE A FREE ORCHID TO TAKE HOME!
