Hello All Orchidians: I am sure now that you have seen many postings
for the Orchid Dinner '04 in Tucson. Many plans are in place to
make this one of the best dinners yet, as we have listened to your
suggestions over the years from previous Orchid Dinner attendees and
organizers. Sam Patania has worked very hard to secure the entire
restaurant, the El Parador, where we will all have time to talk to
each other at length without band and a new and improved PA system
to hear the good wishes of many who have flown from afar to attend.
If you are thinking of putting off your registration until the last
minute, the last minute is NOW!
You can register two ways, either through the Ganoksin Website or
through Patania’s directly. The choice is now.
It would be sad for us not to see our yearly gathering of friends.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you, as is Dr. Aspler.
