 Notes

Welcome to our new Members: We had two new members join in December 2006, and five more in 2007. Please make welcome - Dick Hipskind, Ted Holmsen, Brian and Connie Kelly, Ken Mc Millan,  Brian Rasmussen and Barbara Sampson.

Workshop:  Saturday July 14th: We will hold a club workshop on July 14 at 9:00am at the Tassajara Nursery.  The format will be the same as our Winter potting sessions (though with no repotting, of course).  Bring any of your trees to work on, and receive advice from the Sensei and other members. This would be a great chance to develop your donation trees for the Spring Show!

Spring Show 2008 - April 4-6:  It may seem like we just tore down the backdrops and tables at our 2007 show, but the planning for 2008 has already begun!  There are two areas you, as a member, should now consider:
