BBQ and Auction
This month we have the "Lancer P. Smith Memorial BBQ, Potluck and Auction" which will be held at the Van Galdar Estate,  Lafayette Ca.

We feature a Hawaiian Castaway theme for this year's BBQ!  Featuring fresh and steaming roast suckling pig or a choice of chicken grilled to perfection.  Yes! For the first time the main course will be CATERED!

Dues currently paid gives you entrance for the Dinner.  If you wish to bring a guest who is not a member we'll make him/her a member for the usual $15 application fee, or charge them $20 for the meal, hmm what a choice! 

The only other requirement is is donation of ONE ORCHID PLANT per person for the auction.  If you don't have a plant to donate, use your imagination and donate some item akin to orchids: pots, scissors, jewelry, art etc.   Our Astute Auctioneer Dennis Olivas will auction off all the items for the benefit of DVOS.  Fordyce Orchids, The Paph House and D&D Orchids have donated orchids also.

Please look in the newsletter for details to the Van Galdar's house.

Confession Time
The reason the award pictures are from June not July is that I managed to delete all the pictures from my camera while preparing for our vacation.  Unfortunately, I take pictures of the ribbons so I know who the winners are, so not only are there no pictures but I can't even say who the winners are.

If anyone knows any of the winners for last month PLEASE let me know.
