Gar­den party blos­soms

Chinchilla News - - FRONT PAGE -

The Chin­chilla Cancer Coun­cil and Chin­chilla Gar­den Club have joined forces to hold the Biggest Morn­ing Tea and Gar­den Day rais­ing money for cancer re­search. It was a perfect morn­ing filled with flow­ers, food, and friend­ship. Pic­tured are Gemma and Lau­ren Ruddy with Cooper Kurtz, Ray­lene Har­ris, and Mad­di­son Kurtz.

VI­BRANT flow­ers and tan­ta­lis­ing treats were just part of the Chin­chilla Cancer Coun­cil’s Biggest Morn­ing Tea and Gar­den Day.

The event, held on Mon­day at the gar­den of David and Ray­lene Har­ris, was all about rais­ing money for cancer re­search.

Chin­chilla Cancer Coun­cil chair­woman Lorna Gadsby said the group had held the event in Fuller Place for years but de­cided it needed a change of lo­ca­tion, and was thrilled with the re­sult.

“(It’s) fan­tas­tic, we’ve sold over 140 tick­ets so far,” Mrs Gadsby said.

At­ten­dees were treated to a morn­ing tea, lunch, guest speaker, a lucky door prize, and ad­mis­sion to the beau­ti­ful Har­ris gar­den.

Mrs Har­ris said: “The aim is for peo­ple to come and min­gle, walk the gar­dens, talk with peo­ple.”

The Biggest Morn­ing Tea will be held again in Fuller Place in May.
