ANNOUNCEMENTS

2019 Board Members:
Hello MBS members,
We are in need of support for the 2019 board. In order for MBS to grow and thrive, like our trees, our club needs tending. I know that MBS has wonderful experienced members willing to share, are open to new ideas, and filled with enthusiasm. Regardless of whether you consider yourself experienced in the art of bonsai or not, you have talents that can ensure we develop and shape MBS to it’s best potential. If you could take on a role within our board, it will not only give you a stronger investment in our club, the MBS community will be stronger for it. Please consider joining our board in 2019. Elections will be held at the December general meeting.

Please contact me if you would like to be on our board as a director or know someone who might be interested. (mbsorg.president@gmail.com) Note that the directors work with the board on club policies etc. We meet once per month.

I hope to hear from some of you soon.

Dave Weiss,
MBS President

MEMBER MEETINGS/CLASSES

General Meetings
Tuesday, November 6 – 7:00 PM
The LED discussion planned for April but derailed by the snow storm will be the focus of November’s program. People are encouraged to bring their LEDs and discuss use in storage, tree development, etc. LEDs are getting more cost effective to replace halogen lamps and fluorescent lights in plant culture in general.
