Our next meeting will be another fun opportunity for some member participation.  Instead of a speaker presentation, we will be having an ORCHID QUIZ!!!  And everybody will play. We will divide ourselves into three categories:  novice, intermediate, and expert.   Our president Luis will be conducting the quiz, using PowerPoint slides of different orchid genera and species.  At the end, tally up your scores.  The winner in each category will receive a super reward.
