West Shore Orchid Show

Carol Panza, Chuck Oldenburg, Kathy Collins and Carolyn Bolton took plants from 7 growers to the West Shore show April 22, 2023 in Strongsville Ohio.  Set up began at 11 am and we were amazed that we were finished at 4:15 and had lots of time left over to shop the vendors.  We had a total of 68 orchids in the exhibit. Plants in the exhibit were from Carol Panza, Hossein Noorbakhsh.
