Hi everyone. Please feel free to forward this announcement to others in your email address book.

This is to announce our upcoming IPA SE Region 11 meeting this Saturday, June 7 at Lines Orchids in Signal Mountain, Tennessee. This is sure to be another excellent meeting this time featuring Carlos Fighetti presenting two programs for us. Details are below. Sure hope you can join us!

IPA SE Region 11 Summer Meeting
Saturday, June 7, 2014
Lines Orchids and Walden Town Center
Signal Mountain, TN
9 AM – 3:30 PM


9 AM – Greenhouses Open – Hospitality and Plant Sales

10 AM – Announcements and Program (at Walden Town Center)

“Phalaenopsis Species”
Carlos Fighetti, IPA President & former AOS President
Carlos is well known to the orchid community and is one of the founding members of the International Phalaenopsis Alliance. We are honored to have him present this program entitled "Phalaenopsis Species". Given at the Minneapolis Mid America Orchid Congress this month, the program was very well received given its tight fit in 45 minutes. He’ll have more time with us (and for your questions) as his program will include all of the species and taxonomic recognized varieties including the most recent additions that are not in Eric Christenson's book, Revision of the Genus Phalaenopsis. Educational, informative and comprehensive are three words that characterize Carlos’ program.

11:30 AM – Lunch on your own – Lots’ of choices near the nursery, Mexican to fast food.

1 PM
“New Phalaenopsis Hybrids from Taiwan “
Part 2 of Carlos Fighetti’s presentation
Carlos travels annually to Taiwan and the Taiwan International Orchid Show. Each trip brings to light new hybrids and new directions in breeding Phalaenopsis. This year was no exception. See the latest and the best of what Taiwan Phalaenopsis breeding has accomplished. You’ll enjoy seeing his pictures of these new and exciting directions in breeding.

2:30 PM – Auction to benefit the IPA including its Color Fund and our Region 12. Auction held at Lines Orchids. (Please bring selected divisions, keikis, mericlones, compots and selected plants to donate to our auction.)

3:30 PM – Meeting ends. Have a safe trip home!
