Clarence Valley Independent

Maclean & District Orchid Society

Now we are in 2020, the start of a whole new decade and with our desperate yearning for rain; in one heart, mind and spirit shared, we can be hopeful; and sooner rather than later. Wishing one and all a New Year with renewed hope, love, peace and joy.

At our November meeting, 86 beautiful plants were benched, to admire and assess. Both Judges’ Choice Orchid and Popular Vote winner, Robyn Randle’s Miltoniopsis Breathless “Brilliant”; while both Judges’ Choice and Popular Vote Flower winner was Helen Connolly’s Desert Rose; congratulations!

Our thanks also go to Club member Peter Zylstra, who shared on Oncidium alliance culture. This was followed two weeks later by our end of year party.

Our first Meeting in 2020 is on Saturday January 18. There will be a Q&A session, so if you have any questions, do ask.

Plants are benched by 1pm for the judging, then the meeting begins at 1.30pm. Venue: Presbyterian Church Hall, Church Street Maclean. Lucky door and raffle prizes are included, plus afternoon tea.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
