Happy New Year! Please join us January 8th, to kick off our 2012 programs. We will be meeting at Bird’s Botanicals, 8201 E. 23rd Street, Kansas City, MO, 816-522-9230. David Bird will transport us from the drab winter landscape of the Kansas City area to the Hawaiian Islands, a place he has frequented on many orchid buying trips. You’ll also be able to amble up and down the aisles to admier, buy, and take home orchids in bloom.
If you haven’t been to “the Cave” before, take exit 61/23rd Street East from I-435 just north of the Royals/Chiefs stadium complex, then take the first right into the Interstate Underground Warehouse. Parking will be limited inside the cave, so plan to park in the lot outside and walk in. There are a few parking spaces inside which you can use if you have difficulty walking, or if you have a lot to carry.
Beginners’ Group: 1 pm
Regular Meeting: 2 pm
Susie Hanna and Al Clinton
