    A visual feast, Susan. I'm so sorry to hear of your society's possibly giving up their show. I fear my society may not be holding one much longer, either. The existing members are mostly people who have done it for years and are tiring of it and very few new bodies are stepping up. At any rate, I don't want to end on such a downer. Thanks so much for sharing those great pix with us!

    Cheers,
    Rob

    I'm not currently a member of this society, though have been in the past. Tacoma is about 40 miles from Seattle and it just became too much of a hassle to get to meetings on weekdays. I was at the show helping set up the Northwest Orchid Society display. Unfortunately, the Tacoma Society appears to be slowly going extinct. The current membership is aging and there are no newer, younger members to accept the legacy of this society. The current economic climate doesn't help.
