A Message from our President: Millie Peskay
We closed our fiscal year with a Pot Luck dinner at the June meeting. Members contributed generously and innovatively for the Pot Luck tables. Dinner was followed by memberspeakers Art Mendoza and Millie Peskay who told of their experiences with cymbidium and
Vanda orchids. Thanks Art and Millie.
Millie donated a lovely plant purchased at the Conejo Orchid Society’s annual sale. It was sold at auction with proceeds to our Society.
Treasurer Bob Peskay gave a short summary of our finances for the Fiscal Year 2014-2015. Expenses exceeded income by $557 for the year and would have been more except for contributions of $625 from our members. Bob pointed out the great help of the contributions to support the ongoing programs and was greeted with generous contributions from Frank and Florence Shimizu and new member Jessie Broussard. Members may contribute at meetings or by mail directly to the treasurer. A more detailed financial report is elsewhere in this newsletter. We all had fun with three Bingo games with P.O.T. drawings between each game. Prizes were orchids purchased from Cal Orchids in Santa Barbara.
Finally, thanks to all the members for making a great year. As Usual, there will be no meeting in August so I look forward to seeing everybody on September 5th .
