Gar­den show was a suc­cess

Seymour Telegraph - - KIDS SPEAK - Zahira Wil­son shows off her cre­ation that won the best ex­hibit at the Sey­mour Gar­den Club’s an­nual show last month.

A great day was had by all who at­tended the Sey­mour Gar­den Club’s 34th an­nual gar­den show and photo ex­hi­bi­tion on April 22.

Con­sid­er­ing that it rained all day the day be­fore the show, there were still an im­pres­sive 280 en­tries.

The rain held off for the show day and about 130 peo­ple vis­ited the event.

Due to the late sea­son and wet weather, the cut flower sec­tion was down in all cat­e­gories.

There was a great dis­play all round and a high stan­dard in the pot­ted plant sec­tion and the chil­dren’s sec­tion. The pho­tos made a great dis­play around two of the walls in the hall, cre­at­ing a pleas­ant at­mos­phere for af­ter­noon tea.

Thanks to those peo­ple who kept bring­ing plants to do­nate to our plant stall dur­ing the day.

The sales went well, with few plants left by the end of the day.

Coun­cil­lor Bill Chisholm of­fi­cially opened the show and pre­sented prizes to the win­ners.

Thanks to ev­ery­one who do­nated prizes for the day, and thanks to all those who worked tire­lessly be­fore and on the day to help present a suc­cess­ful show.
