VIENNA – Saturday kicked off a two-day event for the Ki No Kaze Bonsai Club. People could venture to Scots Landscaping in Vienna all weekend and see the club’s trees on display.

People who came were able to learn how to care for bonsai trees and how to pot one of their own in a $50 workshop.

They could also join the Bonsai club.

The cost to join the club is $20 per year and the club meets in Scots during the warmer months and at the Parkersburg Art Center during the winter months. The club offers personalized care instructions by club members who have over 100 years of combined knowledge and expertise.

“It’s like a support group for those who grow bonsai”, said club secretary Edie Lindley.

This year, the club welcomed new members and new trees for the exhibition.

“I think this is the most trees we’ve brought in, and I’m so happy that we can include some new trees that no one has seen before and some that only started last year. “, Lindley said.

“That’s so incredibly sweet,” said Thompson as he began to tear up.

“Bill has been a mentor and teacher to me over the years, and we here at the club appreciate everything he has done for us,” said club member Steve Ritter.

The Ki No Kaze Bonsai Club will be at the Multicultural Festival on Saturday for those who missed it this weekend.
