Summer Meetings:

Note: The Charlotte Wood School is closed for the summer. Both the July and August Meetings will be held on Saturday mornings, from 9:00AM to 11:00AM in the Charlotte Wood School parking lot.

Saturday July 10th and August 14th - Joint Basic and Intermediate Meetings.

Workshop. Bring trees that you may want to show in the Spring 2005 Club Bonsai Show, or trees you are preparing for donation.

The purpose of these Summer Workshops is to help Club Members improve the quality of their Bonsai Trees. Since we won't have to carry the trees into the School you may bring more trees than you might normally bring.

Refreshments: If you want coffee, tea, water, soda or something to eat, please bring that with you.

The Club Library is closed for the Summer. If you have anything checked out of the Library please return it at the September Meeting.
