At the end of June, the staff of HTBG gathered together to bid a fond farewell to Mr. Michael DeMey, who after twenty years as our Orchid Specialist has decided to retire to spend more time with his beautiful wife Mary Anne.
Michael has not only been instrumental in the development and maintenance of our Orchid collection and display, but has personally trained each of our shuttle drivers to do our cruise ship excursions. He has also had a hand in almost every project we have done over the years. We will miss him greatly and wish him well in the next chapter of his life.
The good news is that we have already have our new Orchid Specialist! For the past two months, Gardener Ryan Atiz has been training alongside Michael, learning everything he knows. Congratulations to Ryan, we know that you will continue to keep our orchid display as beautiful as Michael did for the delight of all who visit.
