PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE

Dear ODCS members,

Our first ODCS Zoom Meeting on November 15​th​ was a great success with 17 participants. The Meeting featured a slide show of our Members’ blooms. Thank you to all who sent in your photos. We received over 170 photos submitted from ​many members. We have photos from growers of a range of experience, from first year growers to members with many seasons of experience. The slide show of the chrysanthemum blooms brightened our day and inspired us to dream of next year’s planting. We also held our election of Officers for 2021. The Members voted to keep the same Officers, thus ensuring the continuity of ODCS. This year has been an unprecedented challenge for all of us. In 2021, we plan to host monthly Zoom Meetings until the pandemic is abated.​​ Don’t miss our January 10th Zoom Meeting at 2:00 PM. This will be the preview for our 2021 mums order!

On behalf of the ODCS Board, we wish you and your families a safe and beautiful Christmas and New Year!
