I need to do so as I remember who Arnie was. He was President of the Greater New York Orchid Society when the Society helped to usher in the first Greater New York Show back in 1980 or 1981. First site was the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory @ the Bronx Botanic Garden.
It moved from there to the World Financial Center across from the twin towers in lower Manhattan. After the tragic events of 9/11, the show moved to Rockefeller Center.
Primarily due to declining membership, show restrictions placed upon the show by 30 Rock, the Show folded in 2007 or 2008.
Arnie suddenly passed and right around that time, past AOS President Carlos Fighetti took over.
