President John Lyon reports:
This years Buderim Garden Festival looks like being one of the best ever, great weather & great attendance, Sheargolds garden had 790 visitors, I think this is a record for visitors to open gardens.
The Plant Stall, Raffle and Stall Holders all had great outcomes. Ticket sales great, should make about $12,000.00 profit.
Again great outcome, best for several years.
I would like to especially thank everyone for your help and assistance @ the festival.
Cheers John Lyon
