New This Month
December Meeting Saturday 1st December, 2018
Our last meeting of the year is a little laid back – come and help us celebrate the past year and enjoy some good food and company. Remember to bring change along with you as well as the items you plan to donate for the auction. These items can include any bonsai related items you no longer need, but think someone else would like. For example, green stock with no ants or water coming out and for Michael, some wine. The money raised will help fund future club activities and a portion of the money raised will be donated to our farmers who are struggling through the drought.
Just a reminder that the Trade Table will not be open at the December meeting and the Library will only be open to accept the return of books etc.
Please remember to bring along a tree, a CHRISTMAS or any tree for display this month. You may need some feedback or assistance with developing it into a bonsai. Any tree is welcome. Members are encouraged to share their accumulated knowledge with the newer members. There’s also the chance to win an additional lucky door prize for any member who brings in a tree for display.
Averil Working on a Black Pine
