The Plant Sale is going to be bigger and better than ever this time, as we know people are already putting in lots of effort to bringing on their plant donations for the sale.
We hold this important event each year to raise money to stage the Produce Show later on in August. Your support enables us to keep the annual show alive and well in Lerryn.
We are very grateful to Penny Philp who has agreed to fill the post of Show Secretary and to Rita Dunn who is our secretary. Thank you both.
So please make a note of this date in your diary – May 19th - and show your support by coming along and buying a plant or two, and enjoying a cup of coffee and a delicious slice of WI-made cake.
And don’t forget, the Plant Sale is also the perfect opportunity to join the Association or renew your membership. At only £1, membership opens up the opportunity to win a cup in the specific member-only classes. All details about entries and classes can be found in the 2012 Show schedule, which will be available at the hall. This is also a good time for last years’ Cup winners to return their cups to Sue and John Hancock .
Subjects for this years’ photography competition will be:

Mugs and a letter from the Queen
May 2nd 2012
As part of Lerryn's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the committee arranged for the children of Lerryn School to create a design to commemorate the occasion. The winning design by Joshua Franklin was chosen to appear on the commemorative mug which would be given to the children at the school.
The Committee also decided to send one of the mugs to the Queen, and a letter was sent by Flynn Pearce to her Majesty. Much to Flynn's delight, a reply was received 2 days later, and this letter will be on display in the Red Store during the Jubilee Celebrations.
The mugs will be presented to school-children and Parent and Toddler Group during the week commencing 28th May. Any remaining mugs will be sold for £5 each. There will only be a limited number available, (first come first served), so come along to Lerryn Memorial Hall on Monday 4th June if you would like to purchase a unique memento of the Diamond Jubilee.
