Greetings, NBS Members and Friends!
It is time for the 6th annual Nebraska Bonsai Society Members’ Holiday Raffle! Each year the raffle gets bigger, better, and more fun. This year’s will be held at Lauritzen Garden’s Adult Classroom in Omaha, Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
Thanks to all who already have contributed to this year’s “prizes.” We have several donations of Bonsai books and magazines and, most exciting, several trees, including a Sea Green Juniper and a Wisteria in a concrete pot. We can certainly use more items!
Check your shelves for bonsai items that you are no longer using or want. Bring in items such as bonsai books and magazines, pots, tools, stands, bonsai DVD’s, or wire to donate for the raffle. Pre-bonsai material or bonsai-in-training that you no longer want or like are great items for the raffle too. All items should be related to bonsai. But if you don’t have anything to donate, don’t worry, just come anyway, hang out, buy raffle tickets, and take home some treasures!
We will set up two tables for the raffle items. On one table you put your tickets in a separate container for each individual item. There will be a separate drawing for each item on that table. On the second table, as each ticket is drawn, the winner has a choice of any item remaining on the table. (At the second table, tickets will be drawn until all the items are gone.)
Raffle tickets sell for $1 each or 6 for $5. You can buy as many as you wish!
It is all good fun and will provide extra funds for club activities in 2018.
There will be coffee and light refreshments from the onsite caterer to enjoy while you are browsing the raffle tables looking for treasures.
Bring your significant other and come out and enjoy the fun! Go home with added materials and inspiration!
