Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the Houston Bonsai Society is cancelling our meetings for the next two months.  Those cancellations include the August club meeting and all ancillary events during these two months.  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.
