July meeting was all about the upcoming Show and some of the committee members showed us how to design a few of the show schedule items. ‘Off the Show Schedule’ was the bench topic and we were given lots of tips on how to exhibit at the show and we learnt ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do’ for our upcoming show. ‘Camellia’ was the topic for the ‘from the garden’ bench and we brought in quite a few different varieties from our gardens.
In August, we had our Annual General Meeting chaired by Marion Baker, the president of the Waverley Garden Club. Noreen was reelected as President and Elizabeth was reelected as the Secretary. Rosie continues as Treasurer whilst Ria, Joe, Rhonda, Sandra and Haeztra remain in the committee. A big thank you to Jenny and Alicja who left the committee this time after serving on the committee for several years.
After the AGM we enjoyed making a floating tea cup design. We had fun trying to balance the cup and saucer but ended up with so many pretty designs (as shown below). Thanks to Linda and others who shopped for the small tea cups, glue and prepared them ahead for us to fill with flowers.
