At our October meeting we had a workshop on ‘ínverted crescent’. Thank you Noreen for showing us how to make such a lovely graceful design. ‘My Choice’ was the bench title and we had ‘ A decorated Gift Box’ for wired work. A stem, spike or truss was the horticultural item from the garden.
In November, Nola Shelley and Ria Henley were awarded life memberships by Marion Baker, president of the Waverley Garden Club. Both Nola and Ria have served in the committee for a combined total of 58 years! Ria is still a very valuable committee member although Nola stepped down a few years ago. Congratulations Ria and Nola!
This being the last meeting for the year, we celebrated Christmas with Kris Kringle, supper and by doing a lovely Christmas design using a table mat (shown by Elizabeth). We also donated Christmas gifts for the less fortunate at the Alamein Neighbourhood Centre. Vera Singleton memorial prize for the best aggregate in Open was won by Jenny. Ginta, Binu and Haeztra won the best aggregate for Intermediate, Novice and Horticultural respectively. The popular vote for the best Christmas design on the bench in November was won by Elizabeth. (Note – Christmas designs are placed in the Xmas Photo Gallery tab).
