Thursday, December 18, 2014, 7 p.m. Maryland Orchid Society Holiday Party!

Maryland Orchid Society Holiday Party December 18, 2014     The next monthly MOS meeting will be held December 18, 2014. Don’t forget that this is the MOS holiday party. There will be no speaker or education corner, so everyone can enjoy delectable holiday cuisine and sparkling conversation with fellow members. Feel free to bring your significant others and of course bring a party dish and/or refreshments to share. It is a wild time, often extending ’til daybreak (Often? Occasionally). Let Barbara Buck know what you will be bringing.

Just in Time for Holiday Giving, The Little Greenhouse Open House December 20!

It is always a joy to visit our spectacular local orchid enterprise.

New amenities include:

  • Ample lighted parking in the back.
