Central Valley Haiku Club
August 2014

          Our Central Valley Haiku Club held the midsummer meeting on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at the Gekkeikan Sake Factory in Folsom. In attendance were members Bill Owen, Yvonne Cabalona, Ricardo de Bernardi, Lynne Sperry, Mark Hollingsworth and his wife, Nancy, and Leslie Rose.
  While we shared a feast of foods supplied by the members we discussed the finer points of writing haibun, and our current efforts to write a Club linked haibun, before turning to business.
          Our current focus is our next meeting which will be our Annual Haiku Reading.  Yvonne has again secured us the Gekkeikan Sake Factory meeting room for that event.  We are ever so grateful to the Sake Factory for their continued support of this annual event.  This year the reading will be held on Saturday, October 11th.  The Reading itself will be from 1:00-3:00 and will be followed by our Club meeting from 3:00-4:00.
          After details concerning the Reading were worked out, we took time to celebrate.  Yvonne will have a haibun and a haiku appearing in the next volume of “Bottle Rockets”  (volume 16 #1).
          With plans made, we adjourned, anticipating our next gathering.

Respectfully submitted,
Leslie Rose, CVHC Secretary
