We were praised for our efforts at both the auction, which brought the club $384.50, and the Flower Show, where our entries really impressed the Judge.
Judy reminded us of the Pot Luck Supper on the 20th of October and the awards to be given out.
Apologies were made by Judy for the over quick clean-up which caused some breakage, confusion and missing items when the owners came to pick up their entries.
Volunteers were requested for next year’s show. A point was made that notice for show entries should be made much further in advance.
Judy proposed that the photo contest be a year- long event in order to take in all 4 seasons . There would be a limit of 4 photos per person with judging to be done by our own members and the prizes awarded in November at our Christmas Party.
Judy called for volunteers to be Directors and Executive for the club, and asked for nominations to be made tonight for the elections next month.
