DE­SPITE our meet­ing day fall­ing on a pub­lic holiday (AFL Grand Fi­nal week­end), it will still be held this Fri­day.

Due to un­forseen cir­cum­stances, the Fin­ley trip will now be a week later on Oc­to­ber 22. Bring your lunch to have in a gar­den there. There will be morn­ing tea to share.

All are wel­come. Names and $15 in a named en­ve­lope by this Fri­day’s meet­ing. To book ring pres­i­dent Steve Gra­ham 5859 0296 or sec­re­tary Marg Bow­ers on 5853 2194. The bus will leave the carpark op­po­site Bap­tist Church at 8am.

Flo­ral Art for Fri­day is Mother and Daugh­ter two sim­i­lar (if pos­si­ble) con­tain­ers, one smaller than the other. Prefer­ably use smaller con­tain­ers. It is the ar­range­ment that is judged, not the con­tain­ers.

The Kyabram A.H.&P. So­ci­ety Show is fast ap­proach­ing (Oc­to­ber 20) so try and have an en­try in the Hor­ti­cul­tural Pav­il­ion as well as in other Pav­il­ions. We will have show sched­ules and en­try forms avail­able at Fri­day’s meet­ing. En­try forms and en­try fees are due at the show of­fice at the rear of the Kyabram sports Sta­dium (drive around to the back door), by Oc­to­ber 16, be­fore 4pm. Then your en­tries may be taken to the Hor­ti­cul­tural Pav­il­ion (stew­ards are there to gladly as­sist you) be­fore 11am on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19.

There is no guest speaker this month — there will be a swap day in­stead, so bring along a plant or gar­den re­lated item for the swap ta­ble. A dis­cus­sion time is also planned.

What a lucky day last month, scor­ing cut­tings of chrysan­the­mums af­ter our guest speaker John Morvell of Bendigo gave in­struc­tions on how to grow and care for the above plant. Mem­bers and vis­i­tors scored well, many thanks again John.
