2023 Spring Show—Put It On Your Calendar!

Now that it’s cold and daylight saving time is over, it isn’t too early to start thinking about spring! And spring always means the HOS orchid show! Our show next year will be a month earlier than our usual April date and two months earlier than last year. In 2023 the show will be Saturday, March 4, and Sunday, March 5, with our typical setup the Thursday evening and Friday before those dates. We are moving the show to March next year because Easter falls on our typical April date and the mall is closed that Sunday. The location will be the same as we’ve had the last few years—Memorial City Mall.

As always, we will need volunteers to help with setup Thursday and Friday,  ribbon judging clerking and AOS judging on Friday night and staffing the HOS/AOS table throughout the event.

Look for more information as the date gets closer.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

—Holly Miller and Jay Balchan
