From the President

Shows
K and the Board of Directors have set 2 goals for our club in 2012.  We would like to once again participate in the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, held each spring.  We would have a small display at the festival of 3-5 trees.  Then in Fall of 2012, we would like to hold our own club show.  Preparing our trees for a show is something that takes 6-8 months (or more), so the time to start things about these events is now!
