Raffle

There is a raffle held each meeting - tickets are just $1.

Raffle items are generally donated by Members and usually consist of plants or other handy gardening items.
There is also a food tree donated each raffle by Clutterbuck Family Trust. The legacy of this donation has been many thousands of native and food trees planted throughout the country.

If you bring something for supper (excluding the December meeting), you get two raffle tickets. Inform the raffle person at the door about your contribution to receive the tickets.

 

Supper

At the end of the meeting supper is provided. It is appreciated if members can contribute to the supper a couple of times per year.
