April 2013 Newsletter
Our last Thursday meeting was a busy workshop evening.
Everyone was deeply involved in working on their trees—even me. I would also like to remind everyone we have the mentoring program available; if you are interested contact Larry Kimmelman for details.
The Bonsai-A-Thon was a successful weekend. I would like to thank all our members who helped out through the weekend. Hopefully we all came away with new treasures and further knowledge and secrets picked up from watching the demonstrations.
Our first nursery trip is coming up on March 16th to Ribbit Tree and Plant Nursery. This will be an opportunity to pick up some new trees. I have not been to this nursery so it will be a new one for me, and I look forward to checking it out. The weather should be good so we can all enjoy the day out.
In March the Italian Bonsai Master Mauro Stemberger will be in the Los Angeles area. There are numerous activities planned and members are invited to sign up for. Please contact me for details or check the club websites. He will also be doing the March 19 demonstration for the Descanso Bonsai Society and for the California Bonsai Society’s annual show March 23 and 24 at the Huntington Gardens.
Don’t forget to take in the spring shows coming up. Check our newsletter for places and dates (see page 6).
Our March meeting is a special treat. Bob Pressler will be doing a demonstration. The evening will be spent on working on a long-term project tree, which eventually will become part of our Christmas auction.
See you Thursday night, March 21st.
