The registrations are starting to come in for the1st Annual New
England Orchid celebration, and we’re getting quite excited around

so as soon as possible to help us plan. The absolute last day for
registrations is June 21, but you don’t have to wait for the last
minute. Earlier registration will assist us in our planning: We want
to be sure we have enough food for everyone, for one thing!
