Ann Arbor Bonsai Society Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Ann Arbor Bonsai Society 50th Anniversary Logo

Greetings AABS members from your AABS Board Members. Our 50th Anniversary is coming up in 2020. We are planning to add celebratory events to our annual Bonsai show on August 29, 30th.

On Saturday, August 29th, we will be having a 50th Anniversary catered dinner. Jack Wikle and Jerry Meislik will be our speakers for the evening and will share with us their experiences with AABS as we celebrate our 50th year.

We also have pins and t-shirts with our 50th logo. The t-shirts are ready for purchase in sizes S-5x. Shirts will be available for purchase for $20 each at our monthly meetings, at the Annual Club Show August 29-30, and at The Flower Market in Dundee, Michigan.

Annual Club Show We need your Help

At this year’s show, we are also asking for club members to offer their time to give a demo on Saturday or Sunday. We would like to offer two demos each day. We can supply the tree if you do not have one to work on. Contact Ron Milostan, he will be working with you. Your time is 2 hours. You won’t be ‘on stage’ alone, there will be someone with you to help with explanations and questions.

Also new this year for our annual show we will be accepting trees starting at 11am on Friday the 28th. We hope that this expanded time frame will encourage all members of all experience levels to bring one or more trees for display.
