By Staff | Dec 7, 2012

The Sanibel Captiva Orchid Society is pleased to present a Holiday Luncheon at the Sundial Resort’s Windows on the Water at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 17.

Featured speaker is Rafael Romero of Plantio la Orquidea speaking on “Spectacular Schomburgkias.” Plantio la Orquidea has the largest orchid reproduction laboratory in Venezuela, and more than half of its capacity is dedicated to orchid species in South America as well as from around the world.

To provide better service to U.S. customers, Plantio opened a facility in Sarasota in 2003.

Luncheon choices include a Seafood Crepe or an Open Faced Chicken with melted cheese, bacon and tomato. All entrees include non-alcoholic beverages, a small tossed salad, seasonal vegetables and dessert. Cocktails, wine & beer are also available for additional purchase.

Cost of the luncheon is $20 for San Cap Orchid Society members or $24 for guests (including tax and gratuity). Membership dues for 2012-13 are $20.

Reservations for the luncheon with choice of entree should be made with payment to the Sanibel Captiva Orchid Society by Dec. 10. To make reservations, contact society treasurer Marilyn Kloosterman at 472-9408.
