February Meeting Update

Santa Anita Bonsai Society February 2021 meeting is cancelled

Santa Anita Bonsai Society Members,

Greetings to everyone and welcome to a new year, and hopefully new beginnings. There will be no meeting for our club on February 13. I have asked about opening up the Arboretum for meetings, but there is no plan in place yet. Now that we have the vaccines and a lot of illness-related immunities, I am looking forward to us resuming our club schedule.

For now, Baikoen Bonsai Kenkyukai has scheduled a “virtual” 57th Winter Silhouettes Show and Auction on February 6, 2021. It will be shown online. The show will go “live” online with pictures and videos of the trees and a narrative by Tom Lau and Joe Galgoul, followed by an on-line auction. Go to the links below for the show.



If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lorraine & I at [email protected] or via our website at www.sabonsai.org.

As always, stay safe and well,
