President's Message - December 2015

Christmas is, of course, fast approaching and the Club will be having a well deserved break for a week or two, with nothing on our calendar until we need to do a quick tidy up at the Coffs Regional Airport on Wednesday 6 January.

I hope everyone enjoys this time and comes back refreshed and full of stories about the massive pumpkins you've been growing, or the beautiful flowers that I know you all have in your gardens. And please don't forget that our first meeting of the new year will be held at the Botanic Gardens on Saturday 16 January 2016. I look forward to seeing you all there.

Bob Tarry has kindly put his name forward for election as Vice President for 2016, but no-one has yet nominated for the Treasurer/Public Officer position. We need to resolve this before the meeting in January and so if anyone, including our newer members, has the financial skills and is willing to serve our Club in this capacity, please give me a call to discuss what's involved.

Please note that if you are looking for details about any of the happenings or events within our club all you need do is refer to the back page of the monthly newsletter, or you can also go to our website, www.coffsgardenclub.com, where you will find this information on the right hand side of the Home Page. Maria goes to great lengths to ensure there is easy access to everything you need to know about what's happening in the Club well in advance (or as soon as she's informed). I would encourage everyone to make a note of Club events and activities, or simply record them in your diary. That way you'll be sure to know what's going on and therefore be able to make the most of the opportunities the Club has to offer. This is especially important when it comes to outings, workshops and other important events on the Club calendar.

Finally, I would just like to wish everyone in the Club a very happy Christmas, a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and a wonderful 2016. Thank you all for your "Friendship through Gardens" in 2015.

See you all next year.

Geoff Bell
