Expo pro­vides day out for whole family

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GARDEN & HOME EXPO -

The 17th an­nual Gipp­s­land Gar­den and Home Expo prom­ises to be a great day out for the whole family with mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment, and many ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren, in­clud­ing free pot­ting of plants, face paint­ing and ma­gi­cians with chil­dren`s play ar­eas.

There is an ex­ten­sive range of ca­ter­ing and re­fresh­ments avail­able at very rea­son­able prices, so you will have a fun filled, in­ex­pen­sive day.

En­try costs are adults $10 each and chil­dren un­der 16 are free.

EFTPOS will be avail­able from the Drouin Lions Club site.

Funds raised by Drouin Lions Club over the week­end go back to the Com­mu­nity.

On stage at 1pm on Sun­day will be the pre­sen­ta­tion of awards for best site dis­plays and place get­ters in the Scare­crow Com­pe­ti­tion.

This will be fol­lowed at 2.45pm by the draw­ing of the huge Gar­den and Home Expo trailer raf­fle. Tick­ets are only $20 each and will be avail­able all week­end at the expo.

The first prize is a trailer which is loaded with gar­den­ing items, in­clud­ing a lawnmower. Sec­ond prize is two nights for four at The Moor­ings in Me­tung, with other mi­nor prizes.

There is con­ve­nient dis­abled, and bus park­ing avail­able. If you find you have too many plants to carry, you can get them de­liv­ered to your car by the Drouin Sec­ondary Col­lege Leo Club to make life a lit­tle eas­ier.

For a gold coin do­na­tion, they will look af­ter your plants while you keep shop­ping and then de­liver them to your car for you. They are lo­cated out­side Baw Baw pav­il­ion near the ca­ter­ing area.

Pre­vi­ous years have seen many keen gar­den­ers ar­rive at Lard­ner Park with their trailer in tow.

While en­joy­ing your day at the expo it`s worth a stop at the Drouin Lions Club in­door site in Baw Baw Pav­il­ion. There will be Lions Christ­mas Cakes avail­able for you to pur­chase.

Drouin Lions Club mem­bers will be on hand around the expo, wear­ing yel­low vests, to help any­one in need or ques­tions about the expo.

Any of the mem­bers can talk to you about join­ing Drouin Lions over the week­end or you can con­tact mem­ber­ship chair­man Lion Theo on 0407343410 or 56254589.
