- About Orchid Club | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club
About Founded in 1963 Affiliated with the American Orchid Society In 1963, the Eastern Airlines Orchid Club was formed to foster good fellowship through the common love of orchids in all their forms and varieties; to share both the knowledge and techniques of culture and the mystery and beauty of the plants and flowers. History of the Club The above-mentioned mission statement was created by the Eastern Airlines Orchid Club which was founded in 1963. It was through the interest and hard work of O. Clyde Bramblett that the club was formed. The first meeting was held on July 21, 1963 at the IAM Union Hall at Eastern Airlines on NW 36 Street. Officers were elected for a term of one year. They were President Clyde Bramblett, Vice President Carl Gardner, Secretary Fred Stone and Treasurer Ken McCorkel. Thirty-three people signed the roster and paid their first year's dues of $1.00. The first guest speaker was Mr. Ruben Sauleda, who, at that time, had been featured in the Sunday edition of the Miami Herald because of his pollination of orchid seeds and hybridizing experiments. Later, he became Dr. Sauleda and continued his work at his former business "Ruben in Orchids" where he became well known for his hybridizing and flasking until his retirement in May 2014. Not only did the club promote education in the culture and care of orchids among hobbyists back then, but it was and continues to be very active in the community. * : Select "More History" To Learn More About The Club's Development Note Our Vision We seek knowledge through sharing and learning. Members are encouraged to bring their orchids to the monthly meetings as a means of learning through sharing. Plants are not awarded ribbons, thus, eliminating the stigma of feeling that orchids are not good enough to share. Everyone's orchids are worthy and we urge members to bring them for "show and tell". 2020 - 2021 Board and Committee Chairs Board Members President - Chris Rawls Vice President - Ralph Hernandez Treasurer - Chris Bernt Special Events - Barbara Lutz Members-at-Large - Dean and Suellen Powell, Diane Dickhut, Lou Silva, Yania Martinez and Jorge Li Past President - Danny Lutz Committee Chairs Communications - Chris Rawls Refreshments - Pat Roman and Renny Ramirez Membership - Barbara Lutz Raffle - Suellen Powell Silent Auction - Ralph Hernandez Sunshine - Diane Dickhut Zoo Project - Danny Lutz Kampong Project - Danny and Barbara Lutz Show and Tell - David Foster and Jose Gancedo AOS Representative - Diana Gonzalez Visit EALOC On Facebook
- Orchid Club Meetings | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club
Monthly Meeting Features The club meets in the WC 130 classroom, next to the Wertheim Conservatory at FIU on the third Friday of every month. The meetings are informal, friendly, educational, informative, interesting, and fun! Meeting attendance is a way to get to know people better, share growing tips, gain knowledge and receive free advice or help with problem plants. It is also an opportunity to acquire more orchids via the silent auction and plant raffles. Guests are always welcome. Refreshments are brought in by those members who volunteer to bring them. There is a silent auction table at each meeting, as well as a "Show and Tell" table where members bring in their beautiful flowering plants to share with the rest of the club members. At some meetings, the "Show and Tell" table is so abundant that it's like a mini orchid show. Club dues are only $15.00 a year, a real bargain!!! Guest Speaker Each month a different speaker is invited to talk to the group. These speakers are experts in many different areas relating to orchid collections and care. Silent Auction In addition to the three kinds of raffles, members have the opportunity to bid on a variety of different plants in silent auctions. Individuals furnish these plants in the hopes of being able to sell them. Door Prize Drawings In addition to the raffle, three drawings are held. One is a "members only" raffle where one wins by having the member's number drawn at random. Another drawing for a plant is for a lucky person who is a member of the American Orchid Society (AOS). The third drawing is based upon a separate ticket that is attached to the row of purchased tickets. Show and Tell Members bring in their treasured orchids to share with the group. To encourage greater member participation, ribbons are not awarded. Thus, members feel less intimidated to bring in their plants. Everyone learns through "sharing". Raffle Ticket Sales A variety of extraordinary plants are provided by the club. Raffle tickets may be bought by everyone. This is a great way to get quality plants for a nominal cost. Having fun is the end result. Refreshments On a monthly basis, members sign up to bring refreshments. Members have the chance to socialize while enjoying snacks during the break after the speaker presentation and before the "show and tell" and raffle sessions. Visit EALOC On Facebook

These photos are sequenced from beginning to end. The bloom fully opened around 10:00 pm and closed at sunrise. Take note of the angle of the upturning stems previous to blooming. The final morning, the stems dropped. Queen 2 Queen 11 Queen 1 1/11 Click on "Left and Right" Arrows On Sides of Each Slide to Navigate Through Frames.

Hundreds of thousands, if not a million, orchids will be placed throughout the garden. 90% of these orchids will be permanently mounted. A slideshow show was created to both describe the entire project and show photographs of orchids that have already been placed in the garden. This slideshow comes in three(3) parts, located on three(3) separate website pages. ***Please note that FTBG is not renaming the garden. Instead, it wants to be recognized as a national garden for orchids. 44 62 43 1/20 Return to Slideshow Introuction Click on "Left and Right" Arrows On Slides to Navigate Through Frames.
