  • More Orchid Club History | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    More Club History The second meeting of the orchid club was held August 18, 1963, at the Eastern Airlines new recreation center. As a means of fundraising at each meeting, the raffle was started. For the purchase of a 25 cent raffle ticket, people took a chance on winning an orchid to add to their collections. The club promoted and continues to promote education in the culture and care of orchids among hobbyists. The club was and continues to be very active in the community. When the Jetport was first built in the Everglades in the early 1970's, the EALOC members made numerous rescue missions around the new training Jetport to save orchids destined for destruction. These rescued orchids were transplanted to Grossman's Hammock because most of the naturally growing orchids in the hammock had been stripped away by collectors. As contractors developed areas of the Everglades, beginning in 1974, EALOC members collected orchids to relocate them. During a fire in April 1974, the club members made a valiant effort in an area west of the Fahkahatchee Strand in the Big Cypress Swamp to save orchids that would have gone up in smoke. The members planned on working over as many areas as they could until sundown. However, the fires in the area were being fanned by the wind and the group had to call it quits by noon. They had rescued 300 plants which were also placed in Grossman's Hammock. At least 10 native species were saved at that time. During these rescue missions, the club worked closely with the resident ranger, Lieutenant Martin. Visit EALOC On Facebook

  • 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. *Note : Select "More History" To Learn More About The Club's Development 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 - Betty Alexander Members-at-Large - Dean and Suellen Powell, Diane Dickhut, Lou Silva, Yania Martinez and Jorge Li Committee Chairs Communications - Chris Rawls Refreshments - Lou and Rene Silva Membership - Diane Dickhut Raffle - Suellen Powell Silent Auction - Ralph Hernandez Sunshine - Diane Dickhut Zoo Project - Betty Alexander Kampong Project - Yania Martinez Show and Tell - David Foster and Jose Gancedo AOS Representative - Chris Rawls Visit EALOC On Facebook
