SCOS Picnic & Auction -- May 5, 2007
Summary (Updated August 1, 2007)

Our annual picnic and auction was help on Saturday, May 5, at Carolina Orchids in Fort Mill, South Carolina. As usually Tom and Shan were excellent hosts. Shan provided the main dish of her famous brisket and society members brought side dishes and desserts. We had an excellent crowd for the main event as several members from North Carolina Piedmont, Western North Carolina and Deep South Orchid Societies joined us. Special thanks to Tom and David Janvrin, our auctioneers. We raised an excellent and much needed $1500. Please check out the gallery for photos of the day.

Original Announcement (April 2, 2007) May 5, 2007

What a great spring show season we've had! With your great displays, the SCOS was able to host the second annual Riverbanks Orchid Festival this past February. And we greatly appreciated your hospitality as we participated in the numerous spectacular shows throughout the Carolinas and Georgia.

As the show season draws to a close, we at SCOS would like to invite you to attend our annual picnic & auction.

This year, we will be back in the Charlotte Metro area hosted by Tom & Shan Nasser at Carolina Orchids. It's a beautiful location with easy access, cover from the hot sun and Tom & Shan's three houses of beauties & rarities. Every trip I see something new and irresistible!

The date is May 5, 2007. The preview of items begins at 10am followed by lunch at noon. The auction will begin after lunch around 1pm. This year's auction will feature plants from Carolina Orchids, Cal-Orchid and SCOS members.

Everyone is welcome to attend, membership is not a requirement.

The main dish will be furnished. SCOS Members are requested to bring a side dish or dessert. Drinks and ice will be arranged and the society will furnish the paper products. Guests need not bring anything but a chair. Please share this invitation with your friends and society members. The flyer is optimized for fast viewing, easy to forward, and includes directions to Carolina Orchids.
