    Default July 2012 Winner Member of the Month of OrchidTalk

    I really am so lucky. I get the privilege of reading all the wonderful reasons why different members are nominated for our member of the month award. And, to top that privilege, I am the first member here to read the winners interview response answers. Every single time I am so impressed!! We truly have an amazing group of growers here.

    And now, it is my distinct honor to announce the Member of the Month for July 2012:

    Over the course of this year, this member was nominated many times for many varied and unique reasons, but this month, her name rose to the top of the list and though there are several reasons why, in short: she is well known in this community, her gentle kindness and good nature is one of the daily joys of visiting the site, and she can be found online throughout the day sharing her beautiful orchids or helping others. She truly embodies our community mission of 'Bringing people together to grow orchids better'. Congratulations to Angela, our July 2012 OrchidTalk member of the month!

    Here are just a few of the wonderful things the members here said when nominating Angela for this honor:
    .
    "She has a kind concern for ALL fellow members and takes a positive, well balanced look at the world which shows in her posts. She is intelligent and well spoken (writes well). These are all attributes that in combination are rare enough to qualify her for recognition. On top of all of this she cares for devotedly and mixed collection of orchids that anyone would be proud to own."


    "...the beautiful orchids she show us. I hope one day to have a collection as healthy and nice as hers."


    "Always has a kind word and a helping spirit."


    "She has a huge and generous heart. I am glad to call her a friend"


    Angela, you are well loved here in this community. Thank you for being you! Congratulations!!

    Please help me congratulate Angela!!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Well deserved and I hope you get to the beach to celebrate ...or in the shade house, which ever floats your boat today. Ah, heck go for broke and do both.
