First off I would like to thank Molly for arranging dinner for us in
SF. This is proof to Orchid's commitment to communication and
outreach, but also for SNAG itself. I don't think I would have seen
this kind of enthusasim as short as three years ago as we are seeing
Secondly, Hanuman, Charles Lewton-Brain, and myself, have finished a
huge proposal for sponsorship funding. Working on this proposal
from three countries and two continents is a testament to Orchids'
Lastly, You might have seen a slight lag in the delivery of Orchid.
Due to an electrical storm which wiped out the modem connection in
Hanuman's computer, he and Ton (Hanuman's assistant) spent the
weekend downloading and transferring files, purchased a new external
modem and have ordered the part from Toshiba which could take 1-4
weeks. It is this kind of dedication to bring you your daily dose
of greetings and which have made Orchid what it is
today. Mind you that Hanuman works a full 40+ hour a week job on
top of doing Orchid.
Please, when you come to the Orchid dinner, I want each of you to
take the time to donate. If you haven't already donated this year,
now is the time. We need to keep Orchid growing and healthy.
I look forward to seeing you at the dinner!
