secret government files about this month’s speaker. For the
first time, utilizing the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA),
the truth about Dennis Olivas can now be revealed!
reporter has discovered that Dennis Olivas was born on Kauai,
Hawaii, once belonged to that hotbed of radical thought –
the Future Farmers of America! Indeed it was through his
association with that covert organization that his orchid
addiction started. He wrested himself from the cult and at the
age of 28 swore never to touch the evil weed again! It’s
unclear how long he was clean but we know one thing for sure:
Fellow travelers from the cell at Rod McLeallan’s Acres of
Orchids’ enticed him back into the addiction.

home with upwards of 6,000 plants. Later he leased a
greenhouse space for his ever burgeoning orchid collection.
This man is more than just a hardened hobbyist. Dissemination
of orchids and their like has become his career. His known
distribution point is located in Half Moon Bay. He has been

many of those society’s highest positions and honors. He
wears his hair in a ponytail. Need we say more?
