Grand Opening Great Success
The Mayor of Holdfast Bay, Stephen Patterson officially opened the Community Garden and stayed to wander around and have look at what we have achieved.
Matt Williams, Federal Member for Hindmarsh as well as so many of the Councillors from the City of Holdfast Bay came along and our appreciation goes to them for attending and helping make the day a success.
It was a fantastic day and even though we were preparing for rain it stayed away and blessed us with a beautiful sunny day. The day was very successful with many different stallholders including bric a brac, coffee truck, woodwork, steelwork, plants and seedlings, middle eastern silks, “Upcycling”, BBQ, cake stall, jams and chutneys stall etc.
Even Neville Scrooge , our Treasurer was happy. The Sausage Sizzle made about $800, the plants and seedlings about $750 and the Bric-a-brac white elephant recycle extravaganza made $450 or so. $2,000 for the day, very nice.
With thanks to All of us from All of us for an excellent effort. Particularly Pat who filled in as Secretary and President when Chris and Pam absconded to Japan.
The episodes for Glenelg and Brighton go to air at 5:30pm on Channel 7 on 22nd and 29th August respectively. But you won’t have to remember these dates; I will remind you because I am a star. 🙂
