Your committee has not been sleeping. Instead, it has been planning a host of activities for your education, erudition and delight!! this is a heads up letter – each proposed event has multiple components, so keep your social diaries free, and your e-mail watches tuned for updates.
1. First up -Sunday July 29th – National Tree Day / Giant Book Sale / Pot Luck Indian lunch
1.1. What better way to celebrate National Tree Day than to plant a tree! To get into the spirit, we will plant trees around the Hall for amenity, shade, noise reduction, bird corridors etc. We are focusing on natives, so if you have some trees in pots at home you can contribute, let us know and what they are. We will be purchasing some tube stock of selected varieties. The idea is the holes will be dug, so you can just come along, pay for your tree (approx $2-$3), and plant them and water them in. Plant one in memory of something, or someone. Tree planting from 10 am to noon. Bring trowels/gloves/watering gear if you can.
1.2. AND there’s a Giant Book Sale. We have been given a pile of books from fiction, cook books (always popular) to technical and reference. So we are making them available at low, low prices. Like real low. A buck or two. So come early, plant a tree, then browse the books and get the bargains before the other nerds.
1.3. AND – Mini Produce Sale. A surfeit of oranges perhaps? Chokos? Zucchinis? We have some luscious oranges and mandies, so will bring them along. But if you have other produce – jams, pickles, cakes we can have a sales table for same. Fresh home-made local stuff.
1.4. AND – Pot luck Indian Lunch. (Divali in July?) Now after all that activity, some of us will be lunching together afterwards. I blame Lisa for this idea – she who said that sometimes she has Indian food just for the pleasure of eating lime pickle. What an excuse to have pot luck lunch with an Indian bent. This is not catered – BYO Indian style dish to share. We will have rice and the odd pickle or two. If you are not able to eat curries, bring what you like. Dance Boolywood.
SO – SUNDAY JULY 29 FROM 10 AM, FOR ALL THAT CAVORTING. REMINDERS WILL OCCUR CLOSER TO THE DATE.
