August Guest Speaker:
Highlights from the 2017 Medellin Orchid show, "Orquideas, Pajaros y Flores"
Our November meeting will feature our very own Nina Rach who will provide an overview of the 2017 Medellin Orchid show she attended in August and was fortunate to be among the American Orchid Society judges participating this year.
Every year since 1957, during the month of August, the city of Medellín, in Dept. Antioquia, Colombia, hosts La Feria de Los Flores (The Flower Festival), which attracts people from all around the country. To start things off this year, the Colombian Orchid Society (Sociedad Colombiana de Orquideologia) hosted its 24th annual show, "Exposición Orquideas, Pàjaros y Flores" (orchids, parrots, and flower) August 1 - 7, 2017 in the magnificent Orquideorama within the 35-acre Jardín Botánico de Medellín. The botanical garden was opened in 1972 near the University of Antioquia, north of downtown. In 2008, the city added the 20-m tall wooden mesh, open-air Orquideorama, which provides an excellent backdrop for the orchid displays.
Nina Rach has been a member of the HOS for about 30 years, and is one of the judges in the Houston Judging Center. She has made many trips to South America, and has judged shows in Cali, Pereira, Armenia, and Medellín, Colombia, Quito and Guayaquil, Ecuador, Caracas, Venezuela, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil.
Join us to listen to Nina speak on Thursday, November 7, 2017 at 7:30 PM at the First Christian Church and School, 1601 Sunset Blvd, Houston, TX 77005.
