According to our by-laws, the purpose and objectives of the club are:
To engage in the promotion of orchid culture, extending the knowledge, production and appreciation of orchids;
to acquire and disseminate information relating to orchid culture;
and to encourage participation in orchid shows and displays.
Meetings include a plant discussion table where members talk about plants that they bring that night.
Awards are given for cultural merit.
Sick plants may be brought in for evaluation.
Refreshments are served.
At the end of each meeting, each member may receive a healthy seedling to take home and grow.
On the 2nd Saturday in May, the club sponsors its Annual Mother's Day Orchid Display and Plant Sale.
The first was held on May 9, 1987, and the members have continued to share the raising of orchids with those who attend.
We participate in local orchid shows sponsored by other societies.
Our club pin is shown near the top of this page. Bernadino Cagauan, who was president of the club at the time that the pin was made, came up with the winning idea for the design.
The finished design was then created by Jack Woltmon, whom we lost to cancer on Christmas Day, 2002.
Jack made badges for other orchid societies, as well, and loved to collect them and share them with others.
The membership of this suburban group consists mainly of Mililani residents and a few others from neighboring communities.
Many are backyard hobbyists; some are commercial orchid growers.
Membership: Annual dues are $20 per year.
