July 2020

Our monthly plans are highly fluid due to the everchanging COVID-19 situation. We had picked out plants for our July 1 meeting/yearly auction. Things were progressing nicely until I received a letter this morning from Rhonda, the manager at The Garden Center. She said that the City Council of San Antonio and County of Behar are making changes daily to criteria for holding gatherings. Rhonda also told us that most of her garden clubs had cancelled their July meetings. Based on this input, we have decided to postpone our live meeting/auction until August 5.

We had originally planed on having Bill Thoms speak in August. Those who heard him last year agreed he was probably the most fun speaker we have ever had! Most of the American Orchid Society presenters are also impacted by changes to meetings. The Houston and Austin Orchid Societies are going to have Bill Thomas present using Zoom. We will keep AOS members posted to let them know when and how to join Zoom to see Bill’s talk.
