Visitors on holidays often drop in to meetings after seeing our information in the local newspaper. We try to have several trips a year & also visit other members growing houses, where there are usually some re potting and demonstrations going on. We have a News Letter that goes to all members a week or 2 before meetings. Members can include any information, often buying, selling and swapping through the magazine Most members come from around Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Paynesville, but we cover an area from Churchill in the West to Merimbula In the East

We run two very successful shows a year: A Cymbidium and all other Genera in September and a Sarc Show in November. As the hall is on the Omeo Hwy we have a lot of passing interested viewers. ..some returning as members when they retire . We cordially welcome any-one with a love of Orchids. Please contact the Secretary, President or other members.
