                                19th November 2013
                 A.G.M. & Break-Up Party 

The A.G.M. dealt with three resolutions that will see the Floral Art Group separate from the Society and become an independently incorporated association from the 30th December 2013. The resolutions were passed unanimously by the members. Two additional resolutions were passed unanimously that will see the Society's name changed to "Box Hill Garden Club" and adopt a new set of "Rules" from 1st January 2014.

 A new committee was elected - details are on the About Us page. Life membership was bestowed on Aileen Hogan and Helen Fearn-Wannan. Both ladies have served the Society over a long period of time - Congratulations. A well deserved Thank You gift was presented to Shirley Yeomans for her constant contribution to the Society over a long period of time. After nine wonderful years as President, Helen Fearn-Wannan is stepping down and handing the reins over to Beth Booker.

                           Best Show Bench Exhibit

Members were invited to bring one exhibit, their very best, and we were treated to some really great pots and cut flowers.

                                  Popular Vote Award    

Members voted and prizes were awarded to:-

1st  - Heather Braidie with a vase of 'David Austin Roses'
2nd - Erena Norris with 'Nandina' red berries
3rd  - Helen Fearn-Wannan with a large exhibit of 'Sweet Peas'

                                         Party Time! 

With the help of members, the Committee put on an amazing spread.
There were lots of sandwiches, savouries and cakes to eat, and coffee,tea, fruit juice and soft drinks aplenty. We all enjoyed an excellent morning tea and friendly chatter. Secretary, Bob Yeomans, entertained us by reviewing the year with a fabulous digital photo presentation.

It was a wonderful way to cap off the year and a great time was had by all as shown by our Happy Snaps!

The decorated party hat competition produced a wide range of creations and the Hat Parade was sensational and lots of fun!
