THE Alfred County Orchid Society displayed a variety of orchids at the Hibiscus Mall on Saturday in celebration of Mother’s Day.

Mall manager Alice Brandsma said the display of the orchids is very popular among the customers and that they look forward to events such as this.

Brandsma said the Mother’s Day show this year was very successful with many customers purchasing from stores and others, window shopping.

“It adds colour and atmosphere to our mall and brings in many people to view the orchids and learn a bit more about them.”

She said the next show will be a Spring Orchid Show which will be held on September 1.

The vice chairperson of Alfred County Society Martin Rautenbach said the show went well.

“The show was well attended and many of the people who came loved what we had on display with most of them promising to come visit the club sometime,” said Rautenbach.
