The Board is always seeking ideas for what would interest people at monthly meetings, but we especially want to make this a banner year as we celebrate our 40th anniversary in February. Currently we have Frank Mihalic coming back in March to work on the club taxus for a demo, and Andy Smith of Golden Arrow bonsai coming in April to work on collected trees with us. However, we always need ideas for meetings, and if you are interested in moderating any particular topic that is a bonus for us.
