Late summer and fall is prime blooming season for orchids of the Catasetinae Alliance family. This amazing plant was awarded at the Chicago Judging Center July meeting to our member, Bruce Byorum. He tells us how he grows these beauties in our Fall newsletter.
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 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. Check out our brief video!
Our newsletters highlight activities of the society. They contain photos of member's orchids, educational material, and summary of meeting activities. Newsletters will now be published only quarterly.
Our next meeting will be October 5th, at the Shueyville Church. We will be preparing for our 10th Anniversary 'Orchids Are A Scream' Orchid show and sale October 28-29th. We also will talk about 'Bugs and Diseases in orchids. All are welcome and we hope to see some new members attend. Our calendar will outline subsequent meeting this Fall.
Our orchid show ' Orchids Are A Scream: 10th Anniversary Eastern Iowa Orchid Show and Sale is set for Oct. 28-29, 2023 at the Elks Hall in Cedar Rapid, Iowa
