Formerly Orchid Lovers Club of Spring Hill
We are very sad to report that we have cancelled our orchid show for this year, due to health concerns associated with the COVID-19 virus.
While we hope there will be minimal effects on our community, we are taking this measure out of an abundance of caution. We hope you will all understand this decision. We believe this is in the best interest of our members, many of whom are in the primary risk group for severe complications of the disease. In an environment where the virus could spread rapidly in the coming weeks, we do not want to unnecessarily expose our members or the general public to increased risk of contracting it.
If you had signed up to help in any of the many jobs associated with the show, or to bring food items, we will no longer need you to do that.
Please pass this information along to others who may not be in our email chain. We will be updating our website, and social media.
Best wishes for your continued good health,
The NCOS Board of Directors
There will be no regular March meeting.
Goals of The Club.
Our aim at Nature Coast Orchid Society is to give orchid lovers an opportunity to share orchid culture and care experience, while educating and entertaining in a social and practical way. The prime objective is to acquaint our members with the diversity of orchid species and encourage the acquisition of rare and endangered varieties for preservation and enjoyment of future generations.
Monthly meetings are held at the VFW Post 8681 at 18940 Drayton Street in Spring Hill. The Post is on the corner of Drayton Street and County Line Road, on the Pasco side.
We encourage anyone in the tri-county area around Spring Hill to come and visit one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm. You don't need a reservation, just show up at any meeting for a free visit. You will find the Nature Coast Orchid Society a wealth of information You may be an experienced grower or just have a curiosity about orchids, either way you will find the club to be fun, helpful, friendly and educational.
In addition to regular monthly meetings, with knowledgeable speakers, the Club sponsors tours of tri-county growers and over night travel to international shows, greenhouses and lectures. We also have a yearly orchid Festival, a Christmas Luncheon, an orchid Auction and an annual picnic.
