Update - 5 JULY 2020
Following the announcement last week that the restrictions on numbers will be modified on July 10 we are pleased to confirm that we will be holding our first meeting since February on Saturday 18 July at 2 pm.
The meeting will be held in the garden of Kathleen and Ron Carrick at 16 Dempsey Street, Gordonvale. Our guest speaker will be Zac Petersen who will tell us about native bees. There will be a competition for a single leaf which will be in two parts – Small (up to 20 cm) and Large (20 cm to 40 cm). Two entries per member are permitted in each category. As we will be in the open air please bring a hat and an umbrella if it looks like showers.
We will be following the protocols previously outlined in our last bulletin:
As we are still unable to use the Brinsmead Hall due to the restrictions on numbers, the committee will be making a decision about the rest of the program for this year as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
