EUROA Garden Club held its Christmas breakup at the Euroa Golf Club on December 7, with president Christine John welcoming 61 members and their guests to the fun filled festive event.
Big thanks go out to Lyn Smith and her helpers who put before us a delicious Christmas dinner and to the committee members who decorated and arranged the tables, which were colourful and in the festive theme.
Monthly competition winners throughout the year receive points and by years end, these points are tallied resulting in Coral Cox winning with fifty points and second was Christine John with 38 points.
A raffle was held on the night and all proceeds generated from the sale of tickets, will be passed on to Ivan Lister.
Ivan has been tirelessly working raising money for the last sixteen years for farmers with mental health problems.
This is a worthy cause as our farmers have been doing it tough for quite a while now and this puts a strain on them mentally.
Euroa Timber Co. are to be thanked for supplying all the raffle prises for the evening, through their generosity a very successful amount was raised.
Debbie Ellis performs a very funny skit each year and this year she introduced herself as Vivian, (Santa’s Mistress).
That’s when the fun started, having members in stitches of laughter as only Debbie can.
What a sight to behold, the character Vivian I might add wasn’t on her best behaviour and Santa would have been red faced.
Wayne, (Debbie’s husband) copped it from Vivian and his face turned the same colour as her bright red costume.
This was a lot of fun and members can’t wait to see what you get up to and who you will be next year.
“Kris Kringle” was part of the night and Members enjoyed the surprise that comes with opening a present.
Greg Dudley provided the music for the evening, various types of songs and of course Christmas Carols.
Members joined in singing together with Greg, all in all a great time was had.
“Happy Christmas and safe New Year” to everyone, see you at the next meeting on the February 15 at Anita Kubeil’s garden, Butter Factory Lane Euroa.
CHRISTMAS GET TOGETHER: Members gathered to enjoy a wonderful meal and celebration of the year that was. Pictured are (back row, from left) Iain Towers, Geoff Vincent, Pat Allen, Allana Towers; (front, from left) Jan Vincent , Betty Parow and Denice Can.
