Club Insurance for Garden Clubs

Garden clubs need to have insurance to cover accidents at club meetings and to protect the club executive from legal challenges.

QCGC does not offer insurance covers as a service.

Greetings to you all,

The end of a very interesting year is fast approaching but here are several items to note. Please forward this on to your members also.

1 MESSAGE FROM QCGC PRESIDENT - Phil Adam

2020 has been a year many of us would like to forget for many reasons.  Most clubs have faced a curtailment of their normal activities.  We are all looking forward to a better year in 2021 for our gardens, our clubs and our families.  However, 2020 has not been without its positive side.  With few exceptions we have shown a remarkable community spirit where cooperation and caring have triumphed over narrow, more self-centred concerns.  Many people have found a renewed pleasure in their gardens which has helped them to remain grounded in the face of difficulties.  It is to be hoped that this increased interest in gardening can be maintained in the future.  Finally may I wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.  May your gardens prosper.                                                              

2 QCGC EVENTS

QCGC is planning our usual events for 2021 in the expectation that they will all go ahead. Presidents’ Morning Tea March 31 Wednesday, Friendship Day June 30 Wednesday, Fashion Parade August 25 Wednesday, Christmas Luncheon and Biennial Awards November 24 Wednesday

3 A GARDEN A-FAIR

The weekend of 10-11 April. The theme is Celebrating the 250th Anniversary of Joseph Banks in Australia. There are many ways clubs and their members can participate. Clubs can apply to have a stall to sell products and enter the Club Competition. Individuals are encouraged to enter cuts, plants, floral art and home grown produce on the competition bench and send in an entry in the Photography section. Specialist plant societies may put on a static display. Look for information in the mail in mid-January.

8 DELEGATES MEETINGS

Covid has caused major disruption to our meetings this year. The Seminar Room at Brisbane Botanic Gardens (BBG) was unavailable which meant changing to the Auditorium at BBG. Due to the 1st Monday being unavailable the day also had to be changed. At this stage meetings have been scheduled for the Auditorium at BBG and because of prior bookings the days are not consistent. Dates so far are February 15 Monday, March 11 Thursday, April 1 Thursday, May 13 Thursday. Please notify your Delegate.

9 Just Geraniums - Wendy Skelton

“Just advising that in 2021 I won't be doing presentations at garden club venues. However, Garden clubs can visit (either in Bus or by car) and enjoy a free presentation whilst they are here, more details are on my website…“

I would like to wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season and look forward to seeing or hearing from you next year.

 Dear members,

I have attached the minutes of the Delegates’’ November meeting for your information.

The next meeting will be Monday 3 February 2020 in the Seminar Room at the Administration Centre at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha. It would be wonderful to see Delegates from more clubs came and attend. Your input and participation is valued so that the Committee can make informed decisions on your behalf.

The Christmas Luncheon is less than two weeks away and I for one, am looking forward to celebrating the end of our year. Craig Shaw from Matrix music will be entertaining us - I have been to a couple of clubs where he has been the entertainer and really enjoyed it. There will also be a presentation to Dale Arvidsson of a cheque for $10,000 for structures in the Botanic Gardens, most notably a seat which will recognise the contribution Ross McKinnon has made during his term as Curator, not only to the Botanic Gardens but for the support he has provided to QCGC.

Best wishes to all your members for a happy and safe festive season.
