Gal­ston Gar­den Club

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - My Council - Christ­mas at Sa­van­nah

Our first meet­ing for 2016 was en­joyed by many mem­bers. It was so great to catch up with this happy crowd. We held our AGM and se­lec­tion of Of­fice Bear­ers, and vol­un­teers, and then were en­ter­tained by our Pa­tron, Judy Hor­ton, who pre­sented a scin­til­lat­ing power-point pre­sen­ta­tion of her lat­est trip over­seas. This took in cruises and land travel through Hol­land, Switzer­land, France, Spain, Por­tu­gal, and the Bri­tish and Ir­ish coast­lines. Won­der­ful gar­dens, his­tory, art, mu­sic and gourmet de­lights. Look at www.botan­ to choose from a myr­iad of trips.

Frag­ments of fun at our Christ­mas Party were be­ing re­called where 87 mem­bers en­joyed this event at Hugh and Richard’s “Sa­van­nah”. We are so grate­ful for this su­perb venue.

We are so for­tu­nate to have mem­bers Judy Hor­ton and Elizabeth Swane, and many other very knowl­edge­able peo­ple shar­ing their in­ter­ests. How­ever, it doesn’t matter how lit­tle or much you know, come and en­joy great evenings. We have re­ally in­ter­est­ing speak­ers, day trips, trips away, din­ners, and of course, our Open Gar­dens.

If you have a prop­erty you feel you would like to in­clude in this year’s Open Gar­dens, or know of some­one else’s, please con­tact Bill Flem­ing on 9653 2394 as soon as pos­si­ble. We are so for­tu­nate to live in an area that boasts beau­ti­ful gar­dens. You’ve done all the work, so it would be good to share it with other gar­den lovers who ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts.

Our next meet­ing is on Wed­nes­day 9th March, 8.00pm at the Gal­ston Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, 37 Ar­ca­dia Rd, Gal­ston. Guest Speaker is Maroun Maait of Alpine TreeMo­vals, talk­ing on the Nurs­ery and Tree Mov­ing business.

We are look­ing for­ward to a lo­cal gar­den ram­ble on Fri­day 18th March and a day trip to Kan­ga­roo Val­ley vis­it­ing spec­tac­u­lar gar­dens on Thurs­day 7th April.
