Remembrance Garden Plans are presently being drawn up by two of our members, Chris Cannin and John Methven. To be situated in the South/East section of our grounds, between the driveway and the rear boundary fence, it was felt that this was the ideal location, a peaceful area far enough away from the entertainment regions, and unlikely to be disrupted if future expansion is needed. Members of the Women’s Auxiliary, who are also members of the local garden club, have kindly offered to assist in the choice and layout of plants and shrubbery for this venture. Work will commence immediately once the plans have been approved by committee. Chris Thompson

From the Kitchen
Both the darts and pool teams are progressing well in their respective associations. The dart team remains unbeaten, but faces some very strong opposition still to be played, as it progresses through the first half of the season draw. The pool team is placed in mid field, despite having some of the best players on the island as members. It was suggested that it might be appropriate to curtail before game practice at the clubrooms prior to the matches, but this was soundly defeated, as some members maintained they did not know how they would perform under those trying conditions.
We were able to subsidise the trip for our members, we enjoyed a lovely morning tea on the boat, we cruised the Maribyrnong River, and disembarked at the Anglers Tavern in Essendon, we enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Tavern, we rejoined the boat and our lovely hosts Anthony and Lisa. We cruised into Victoria harbour, under the Bolte Bridge past the sugar mills, Waterfront City Marina, Etihad Stadium. Everyone agreed that the day was wonderful, we arrived home tired and happy about 4.30pm.
