Glenn read out the 8 gardens which will be part of this year’s event.
He told members that the number had been cut down because it was very difficult to get around 10 gardens in a day and so there will be the opportunity to swap gardens around each year.
The BBQ is expected to be at Darryl King’s garden but this is to be confirmed as are morn-ing teas being served and sculptures being available in other gardens.
Candlebark is open through the Victorian Open Gardens Scheme so is an extra garden and the Yea Garden Club will again have plants for sale at Myrna’s in Welsh Street. A Donation will be made to Rotary.

This project is winding up as a total of $535 has already been raised and Hat Night will be held on September 29.

Tony has offered to donate a prize for the best had in the room, so members asked to wear a hat for fun.

Whether this will be a partners night is to be confirmed.
