Please note that our October working weekend has been moved back a week to the weekend of 12/13. This is partly to ensure that it doesn’t clash with the tail end of the school holidays. Please get the word around. This is likely be a permanent move so in future the official date will be the second week of October. The other on the first weekend of May remains the same.
Also our AGM will be held on Sunday morning of the 13th at around 10.00 am. As a matter of principle and in the interest of inclusiveness and participation we need to be open to renewal so we encourage formalising memberships and accepting new nominations for the committee.
We only have about 20 plants to put in so some of our attention will be on weeds and identifying problem areas. With the change to October last year we got to experience some sunny weather and a warmish night. So please get along if you can.
Three years ago we introduced an annual voluntary contribution of 50 dollars per member/supporter to help with our yearly costs. Last year we were a bit complacent and let it pass without soliciting donations. The funds are used to pay for our yearly shire rates, maintenance costs, plants and other associated expenses, all money well spent. In related good news our yearly rates have been reduced to about 50% due to us becoming a covenanted property but our funds our now at a critical low level so any help will be greatly appreciated. Coming up soon we will also be having a fund-raising sausage sizzle in Castlemaine. (more information to come)

In the description write your name or “contribution”. We do not have tax deductibility status. We will send you an email confirming we have received your contribution.
You can also make a donation in person if you attend the upcoming October working weekend. For those who haven’t been coming to recent weekends at Moonambel think of the petrol money you have saved, I can’t think of a better way to spend it.
