The Akron Canton Bonsai Society was created to understand, enjoy, learn and share ideas about the art of Bonsai. In short: it's all about our trees. We meet on the first Thursday of every month--except December-- at 7:00pm at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, 2131 Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44221.

Bonsai Down by the River Side
unexpected flood on the lower levels of the Cuyahoga Valley Art
Center, almost spoiled our regular July meeting.
Thanks to some
quick thinking by our VP Kevin Fey, who scoped out the neighboring
area, we moved across the street to the riverside amphitheater. The
turned out to be a pleasant surprise and a pretty good bring your own tree
workshop. It was a gorgeous summer
steps and benches made for plenty of seating,
space and clean up from
pruning and split soil
was not a problem. Anyway,
we had good some tree work. Maybe we should make the outdoor, down by the river side meeting an annual event.
The Art Center director said that the lower level was flooded with
8 inches of flowing muddy water, and disrupted their classes and
operations for a couple of weeks. The flood was caused by work crews in the area who broke drainage lines. We are OK in our regular meeting room for August.
