Big Doings for MHBS July 27

JULY 27 is an all day event for MHBS beginning at 9 am. Our monthly meeting will feature two great activities:

Bench1- BONSAI STAND BUILDING

The club has chosen a spacious three-tier bench for this project. Myron has modified the plans to make it portable and storable, and it features three eight-foot shelves of treated wood for plenty of tree space. If you need better benching for your trees this is your chance.

RESERVE YOUR BENCH BY JULY 18

Only those who have paid by July 18 will have materials purchased for them. Send your $195 check made out to MHBS to Molly Beverage at 285 Hickory Hollow Road Pawlet VT 05761.

EXTRA HELPERS NEEDED!!

Volunteers are needed to pick up supplies, bring tools and food, help construct. Contact Pauline to volunteer.

2- BIONDO ESTATE SALE

Founding member Josie Biondo’s family have given us a large portion of her pots and bonsai items to sell. The club will receive 50% of the proceeds. Cash or check only. Pauline needs a small crew to help prepare pots for the sale. Email or call if you can help on Friday July 25 after lunch.

AND THERE’S STILL MORE!!!

Save the Date—August 22-24—for a giant stock sale with Mark Comstock and Jim Doyle.
