There is a new orchid club in the Essex-Windsor area of Southern Ontario as of July 19, 2009
and it will be known as the
"Essex County Orchid Society"
A very dedicated and enthusiastic group of orchid hobbyists who wished to share their knowledge with others in a fun-loving atmosphere decided to form this new club. As a group they can continue to expand their horizons with others, in cultivating, growing, sharing and showing their orchids. Many of the members are expert growers/hobbyist with a range from five to forty years experience in growing varied Orchid Genera.
On Sunday, July 19, 2009 an organizational meeting was held to form this new club. There were 19 orchid enthusiasts present and some sent regrets do to prior commitments.
An Executive was elected and so was the formation and the beginning of the new "Essex County Orchid Society
