The Long Island Bonsai Society
There are no borders in Bonsai. It brings peace to a palace as it does to the most humbles of homes, to the young as to the old, to the rich as to the poor.
It invites us to live within the world it is onto itself, and we are drawn, as no words can express, to live within it's shade.
The Long Island Bonsai Society invites to enjoy this living art that can last for generations.

HOLIDAY PARTY AND AUCTION
Location: Schoolroom Planting Fields Arboretum
Time: Noon to 4:00pm
TO ALL OUR MEMBERS, THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WE WISH YOU AND YOURS A VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY.
LIBS OFFICERS AND BOARD MEMBERS
For more information, pictures and updates, please visit Long Island Bonsai Society on Facebook.
Our holiday party this year is on December
14th, noon in our normal meeting room. The lunchen will begin at 12:00 and the auction starts at 1:00 and runs until around 3:00pm. The cost is $15.00 if you register BEFORE December 1, 2109. After that date and on the day of the party the cost will be $20.00. The reason for this is that we order the food based on the number of people who sign up and we do not want to order too much food as it then becomes costly for the club treasury which supplements the $15.00 to cover the expenses.
Please signup for the various positions that we need to fill to make sure the party is a success such as setting up and taking down the table cloths, cleaning up the food tables, numbering the items for auction, bringing desserts and/or Bonsai material etc.
We are no longer going to have the Silent Auction so please do not bring any non-bonsai related items.
You may sign up and prepay at the November meeting or else online here under the schedule tab. You can use Paypal to pay.
This is a major fund raiser for the club. You will have terrific food, a lot of laughs and get great bargains on all things Bonsai. For new members it is a wonderful opportunity to meet, talk and get to know other club members.
HOLIDAY GIFT SUGGESTION
If you have someone on your gift list who is a gardener, perhaps a gift of some soil, pumice or akadama would be a good choice and we have it for sale at all meetings.
