Blueskin Garden Club members have been out and about recently.
Lots of us attended the Anzac Day Service at Waitati, Eunice Hoogsteden and Glenys Clements arranged the floral displays in the hall as well as making several wreaths. Members also served morning tea.
We held our AGM last month over a meal at the Careys Bay Hotel. Furs and fascinators were the dress code, the weather was cold that night and perfect for a fur coat.
Our longest serving member (19 years), Glenys Clements was thanked for working tirelessly for the club in many capacities. Glenys was presented with a brooch and a big thank you.
Our new committee is president Daphne Henderson, secretary Lyn Hastie, treasurer Marilyn Richardson and committee members Marg Meder, Janice Henderson, Lyne Carlyle, Lesley Smith, Rowena Park and Norma Dick.
We have planned another interesting year of speakers, trips and a hands-on workshop.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 14 June, at 7.30pm in the Warrington Hall. Speakers will be from Youthgrow in North East Valley where they have a nursery and work with young people.
We will have the usual raffle, competition for best bloom and vege/produce and supper. All are welcome.
Maybe you are new in the area and would like to meet some of the locals. Come along and join us.
