AGM AND 25TH BIRTHDAY IN DECEMBER
Our AGM and 25th birthday celebrations were held on the 13th of December. Guests included – Mayor Gary Rush, Zone Co-Ordinator for Garden Clubs of Australia Glenna Coxhill, Past President of Garden Clubs of Australia Ken Bradley and founding members. The highlight of the day was the cutting of the birthday cake by President Peter Varman and Mayor Gary Rush.
The November meeting was held at “The Old School House” at Yetholme. Built in 1858 the beautiful historic home is now owned by club member Belinda Cobcroft. Belinda and Brian purchased the property in 2012. Belinda and Brian are slowly clawing back the plantings of maples, crab apples, birch, rhododendrons and roses from the relentless ivy and layering vibernums that for years engulfed the plants, buildings and fences. Thank you Belinda and Brian for sharing your garden with us.
Our September meeting was held at the home of member Pat Jones in Rankin Street. Many years ago the first garden club meeting was held in the garden. The cottage style garden fits beautifully with the heritage building. Thank you Pat for allowing the club to return to your lovely garden.
At the meeting member Jenny Meenahan was awarded life membership of the club. Jenny has been a member since 1997 and our newsletter editor for the majority of that time. Congratulation Jenny!
