president's message

January 2021

Dear Members,

Photo of Ryan LangtonHappy New Year! I, Ryan Langton, your newly elected OSSC president, hope this greeting finds you well (or recovering) during these extraordinary times we all find ourselves living through at the moment. While circumstances have hampered the way we’ve done things for so long as a club, I feel we have adapted well--much like our beloved orchids which have adapted to so many niches and climatic conditions around the world. And, as we all know, just because something looks dead, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is! Our club may look dormant on the outside, but I know that we have all been very busy at home with our plants. I very much look forward to eventually enjoying all the activities we have had to pass up this past year. As I take the helm from our former president-extraordinaire, Erin Maxick, I hope you’ll join me in thanking her for her wonderful service and leadership. While I may not bring the same aplomb as Erin, I hope that, with the help of our other officers, I can provide you all with intrigue and interest at our meetings, joy and encouragement from our fellowship along with inspiration and motivation to continue growing your orchid aspirations Besides me being new to the club leadership, we are also welcoming aboard a new 2nd VP, James Roberts, as well as a Membership Chair, Anzhela Timiryan. James was interviewed in our meet-a-member profile series in November, so be sure to check that out here . I happened to have been interviewed as well, so feel free to read that account of my orchid interests here . With that, I hope you all enjoy the newsletter and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year for our January meeting via Zoom.
