One of our most popular annual paint-outs is scheduled this year for February 12, 2013 from 9 am until 12:30 pm. Where would we possibly want to hold a paint-out in the middle of February? Hausermann Orchids’ showroom and greenhouse, of course!
Orchids by Hausermann, Inc. is the largest orchid grower in the Midwest, and each year, fifteen members of the Nature Artists’ Guild are able to take this trip to the tropics without any of the hassles of traveling! The showroom and huge greenhouses of Hausermann’s are warm, bright, and filled with gorgeous orchids of every shape, size and color. One lucky participant will even win a certificate for a free orchid to take home with them!
The spots fill quickly, so please contact Carol Jean Rogalski (you can find her contact information in your Yearbook) to reserve your place in the sun (or at least warmth).
Orchids by Hausermann, Inc. is located at 2N134 Addison Road, Villa Park, IL 60181.
Please visit their website at www.orchidsbyhausermann.com to view some stunning photos and read more about the art of growing orchids!
The word is that the paint-out was a huge success, so please enjoy these photographs contributed by some of the attendees! The winner of the orchid was Irene Gintilas, and the photo she has shared with us is included in the slideshow.
