Tour of Hark Orchid, Dinner, White Elephant Exchange/ NEF Fundraiser

Hark Orchids, also known as Hark Orchideen, is a family owned German firm that is funding the construction of this new facility that will house its orchid propagation operation in the United States.
The facility is expected to mean 50 new jobs by the summer of 2013 to the Kalamazoo community and about 25 more in the following months. The facility currently under construction will be a 35,000-square-foot structure with specialized features designed to accommodate orchid propagation including a 30,000-square-foot laboratory and climatic chambers facility. CSM Group and Hark Orchids will be our tour guides.  View printable version (PDF)

Please bring with a gift that you were given that you would like to re-gift ($10-$20 value range). The re-gifts should be wrapped as temptingly as possible as they will be put up for auction during the dinner. Proceeds of the auction will be donated to the NAWIC Education Fund (NEF) www.nawiceducation.org. Print flyer: Tour of Hark Orchids (PDF)
