Diablo Bonsai Club Look Ahead Schedule

No August Meeting.



Meeting Place - Due to the increasing cost of rental of the Heather Farms facility, the club is looking for a new place to hold its monthly meetings.  It has also been suggested that we might want to change our meeting time to Saturday mornings, rather than a weekday evening.  If you know of some place we could have our meetings, at either of these times, please contact Byron.
