The Ottawa Bonsai Society (OBS) established in 1984, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting interest and understanding in the art form of bonsai. The focal point of OBS is our monthly meeting held at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre (in Britannia Park) the 3rd Monday of the month (except December, July, August). A beginners’ session begins at 6:30 p.m. and the main meeting runs from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. p.m. Monthly meetings provide OBS members with an excellent forum to exchange ideas, techniques, and experiences relating to bonsai. OBS actively recruits and welcomes new members since in the eyes of our organization, newcomers are equally as important as our long standing members. They invariably provide fresh perspectives, enthusiasm and most importantly new friendships. Contact: Yvon Bernier at (819) 684-0586 or info@ottawabonsai.org. Web site at www.ottawabonsai.org
