About the Society...

The Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Pinecrest Gardens. 
The meetings usually begin at 7.30 PM and the details of the programs for each meeting are listed in the Calendar of Events. Board Meeting will begin about 6:45 and everyone 
is welcome.

The evening begins with a brief discussion of club business and any announcements. 
Next is the program which may vary. We have found that most members enjoy what we call a BYOT (Bring Your Own Tree) workshop. You bring a tree or trees to work on and
our more advanced members will help work with you and answer your questions. 

Other programs might include a guest speaker. The speaker may do a lecture, a demonstration, a slide presentation, a workshop or may combine any or all for his program. The program topics are chosen by the club's board and we get a speaker to 
talk on that subject. After our guest speaker finishes, we break for refreshments, socialize, to purchase raffle tickets and discuss the trees brought in.

The member's trees are for show and tell or a display  and critique. We ask our guest speaker or one of our members to discuss the trees brought in. After the break we hold 
our raffle and conclude the meeting.

At all General meeting, Guests are always welcome - Free!

Each year we invite a few Bonsai Masters to visit the Society and give a presentation or 
to hold a workshop. Details of these visits will be found in the Calendar of Events page, 
and picture from previous visits can be seen on the Visits by Bonsai Masters page.

During October the Society holds its Annual Show and Sale, where we create an Exhibit 
of our best trees, provide presentations and workshops, create an Educational Display,
hold numerous raffles and invite Bonsai Vendors to attend so that visitors and members can view a wide selection of Bonsai-related goods for sale. More information and pictures from previous shows are available on our Annual Show page.

During December, our regular meeting is transformed into the Annual Auction. This is 
our fundraiser for the year.
Members bring in trees, pots, tools and many other bonsai related items.
