Diablo View Orchid Society
Newsletter Excerpts

The newsletter is sent to every member and to guests for three months after their first visit. It contains DVOS news, growing tips and other items of interest. Here are some excerpts of articles from our newsletter.

We are going to try putting up the complete newsletters in .pdf format.  You will need to load the Adobe Acrobat Reader from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html, this will allow you to see the newsletters in full color.

If you're having trouble reading the newsletters, please make sure you have the latest version of Acrobat Reader 5.0 installed, something seems to be different with the new provider and I've had trouble getting past the first page with version 4.0.
