President's Message - August 2015

At yesterday’s monthly meeting I mentioned the need for people to continue putting up their hand to do one of the many jobs around our Club.

There are plenty of ways in which you can contribute. Most obvious are the executive
positions of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer/Public Officer, but there are also very important roles on the Program Committee, the Spring Garden Competition Committee, the Catering Committee, the Competition Table Judges and Stewards, the Communications Coordinator and the Airport Garden team.

And of course there are other equally important roles around the operation of the Club, like manning the door and setting up and cleaning up at monthly meetings and events, organising and manning fundraising BBQs, organising our Clean-up Australia Day activities and representing the Club on the Coffs Show Committee.

Our AGM will be on us before we know it, so please consider taking on a job for next year. If you would like more information on any of the roles, please just give me a call (my number is on the front page of the newsletter), and I’ll fill you in on the details.

Please remember that any club is only as good as what its members put into it. The greater people’s contribution and commitment, the better and more enjoyable the club will be for everyone.

Finally, please don’t forget to get your own gardens ready for the Spring Garden Competition. There are plenty of categories to choose from so you don’t have to enter your whole garden if you don’t want to. Garden Club members have done very well in the past and I’m sure 2015 will be no exception, so please hop to it and get your entries in—they close at 5:00pm on Friday 4 September 2015. The easiest way to enter is via the Club’s website at, or you can pick up a paper entry from most of the nurseries and landscape suppliers around town.
