The Orchadian
The new upgraded Website will be in operation in the near future. I encourage Member Groups to utilise their Home Page to keep Memberships informed. The September issue of the Orchadian has some very interesting articles for all Members thanks to our Editor Greg Steenbeeke who continues to impress. Congratulations to our National Registrar of Judges Ray Clement on his award for his very impressive plant Dendrobium Warringah 'Purple Heaven AM/ANOS. Tony Clarke's article on Don Cruickshank's Day is interesting, anyone who has visited Don's residence will have witnessed his superb collection, that would rate as one of the best in Australia. David Butler's article on 'Good Things come in Threes is very interesting in the progress of Orchid Hybridising in Australia with one of Henk Van Den Berg's orchids being awarded an FCC by the AOC. The Annual General Meeting held in conjunction with the Kempsey Speciosum Spectacular saw the majority of the previous Committee Members re-elected, an indication that things must be well in hand for ANOS.
