Presidents Address

Happy Springtime to all our members.

I hope you have all survived the cold weather? I love the cooler weather not the heat.

I had a lovely visit to the Colac and Traralgon branches few weeks ago. Unfortunately the Leongatha branch had postponed their meeting so I couldn't pop in to visit them.

By the time you read this the Melbourne Show will be in full swing or over.  Congratulations to all of you who entered. To those that got a placing, well done. Those of you that missed out great job for just getting your cakes to the showgrounds.

The turnout for the Father's Day workshop was abysmal with only 9 members participating. The hall rental each time we meet costs $300.  It was a lovely day nevertheless and our demonstrator of the day Stephanie Smith did a wonderful job.  A big thank you to our members who turned up to support the CDAV.  The State Seminar 2018 planning is progressing very well.  So any fundraising for the National Seminar for 2019 will have to take second place until after our State Seminar is over.  The CDAV comes first!.

The Traralgon and Warragul Branch have kindly agreed to host a Protea flower workshop in December as a fundraiser for the 2018 CDAV State Seminar.  Yours truly will be teaching it. Would be lovely to see as many of you there.  We'll have some lovely raffle prizes as well.

Our October meeting will be a flower workshop after the AGM.  This is a non election year.

Please, if you have any concerns or suggestions come and speak to me. I don't bite. Not at first. Lol.

God bless from John Quai Hoi

CDAV President.
