Next Meeting is on Thursday, July 11th, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Contra Costa Water District Building Board Room
 1331 Concord Ave. Concord, CA

Expect the Unexpected 
Dennis Olivas, Brad Piini & Liz Charlton  

Dennis, Brad and Liz have been recruited by your Board to hold forth on topics of their choosing. 

Dennis will reenact the Texas Chainsaw Massacre with overgrown cymbidiums (a personal nightmare). Perhaps he can provide hope to those of us whose yards have been blighted by hulking containers of cymbidium back bulbs. Itís like having a houseful of sullen teenagers who eat everything in sight and never clean their rooms. 

Brad will show slides from his Grand Canyon trek. 

And finally, Liz will have a go at the wonderful world of mounted orchids. Can she hack an orchid into pieces? Yes she can! Can she tie them and herself in knots? Yes, she can!

July's plant table will be a provided by Dennis Olivas

There will be no Speakerís Dinner before the meeting,however, there will be our Annual Ice Cream Social at break time.

Catterel
by Rupert J. Phipps-Faruquar (decíd)

If you were an epiphyte,
which would you be?
Discover yourself,
go live on a tree.
Live on rainwater,
bird poop and sun.
Inhale CO2,
return oxygen.
A far better life,
than how weíve begun.
Helping the planet,
while harming none.
