Once again, posies were made to distribute to people watching the Show Parade on Friday 2 November. Thanks to those who contributed flowers and made the posies and, in particular, to Sue Spacey who made up the packets of seeds that were also handed to spectators. It was also a very useful occasion for handing out flyers for the garden market being held two days later. Cookie did his usual slow drive down Barker Street accompanied by Peggy who has perfected the royal wave!
Feedback from the public was very positive with a couple of people commenting on the local website Castlemania. “To the lovely lady from the Castlemaine District Garden Club who handed out flowers and packets of seeds at the parade yesterday, I say thank you! Such a lovely thing to do”. “They are one of my favorite parts of the parade. Today my kids and I had a lovely morning planting all the seeds we received. Thank you”!
