UPCOMING MONTHLY MEETINGS —

Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the Houston Bonsai Society is cancelling our in-person meetings through the end of the year.  Those cancellations include the Saturday club meetings and some ancillary events during the weekends.  The decision is based on the guidance provided by the CDC to limit social, face-to-face contact in order to slow the spread of the virus.
