   The PSOS annual orchid show welcomed visitors to a place to forget the cold and snow outside. The PSOS annual show is a showcase of blooming orchids raised by some of the members who enter their specimens for judging. Much hard work is represented by these members displaying their cultivation skills and transport of these tropical orchids to the show in the cold bitter weather.

  Congratulations and thanks to the many officers and members of the society for their hard work in bringing all of the facets of the event together.
