DVOS Show 2003

By all accounts, from volunteers, vendors and visitors, the DVOS 2003 Fall Orchid Festival Show and Sale was a complete success. This, in no small way, was due to the many members that volunteered their time.  Forty three (43) members (actually forty two members and one ringer - sorry Ray but we had to disclose your cover) helped to set up the show, judge the orchids and displays, sell the plants, staff the entry desk, manage the plant hotel, provide security, give doctoral advise on plant problems and perform potting demonstrations. This is an incredible demonstration of group spirit, particularly when you consider that our membership doesn’t quite reach one hundred members.

Our figures indicate that close to 350 people paid the admission fee. Plant sales by the Society and the three vendors were substantial. Participation in the potting demonstrations was large. The general mood of participants and visitors, during the two days of the show, was very positive.  The DVOS Board of Directors, encouraged by the results of this year’s show, is already taking steps to plan next year’s show and sale.  So stay in touch there are better things yet to come.  

On behalf of the Board of Directors, David Tomassini and I want to thank every one of you who volunteered and worked so hard during the two days of the event. Without your help and dedication the success achieved by the show and sale could have never been possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.      - Juan Bofill and David Tomassini, Show Co-Chairmen
