Grafton Floral Art Society

Almost every Australian is affected by cancer, and statistics have proved one person is diagnosed every five minutes.

Grafton Floral Art Society has been conducting their annual Cancer Council Morning Tea for more than twenty years, commencing in a car port, then up-dating to a home, and with popularity increasing during the last 3 years, the event is now held in the Joan Muir Community Centre.

The morning tea held on May 10 was held on a perfect autumn day in a relaxing atmosphere, with 58 persons in attendance.

President, Lyn extended welcome to all, and expressed the Society’s gratitude and asked all to enjoy the morning.

On each table, floral arrangements had been placed on colourful tablecloths which attracted many favourable comments.

Once seated, scones, slices, tea and coffee were served to each person in attendance. A major raffle was held with four winners of the main prizes and continued with six prize winners to select a prize from the table.

Nine lucky door tickets holders were also drawn.

With assistance from Allam, excitement continued with the Tombola with approximately 70 small gifts to be won.

The trade table was very popular, with beautiful Mother’s Day flower arrangements for sale, some in bowls, and others in baskets.

The home cooking was popular together with craft items.

At the conclusion of the morning tea president Lyn thanked all in attendance, contributions, generosity and assistance.

A reminder, that the next meeting will be held on May 26, at 10am at Whitehouse tea rooms. Should you be interested in the art of flower arranging why not come along and join the group.

There is no mystery about flower arranging, anyone can do it.
