Bungendore Harvest Festival

The Lake George Day View Club and the Bungendore Evening VIEW Club had a combined stall at the Rotary Harvest Festival in Bungendore. The weather was perfect for the day and the number of people coming in to join the activities was high and the atmosphere enthusiastic.
Between the two clubs we raised around $200 to donate to the Smith Family Learning for Life program.The intrepid travelers otherwise known as the VIEW Club ladies were the first people to go up in the balloon for a tethered float in the sky, provided by the local RAAF.

All ready to start the day. We tasted wine and produce, bought local jewellery, listened to performances and ran our children's lolly guessing competition and coin tossing game along side of selling Judy's plants, Mary's boysenberry jam, Pauline's produce, Sue's trading table items and pet rocks from BEVC.

By special request The Queanbeyan Bag Pipe Band came and played "Scotland the Brave" for our ladies. What a wonderful treat!

Congratulations and huge thanks go to LGDVC members for their part- Brenda, Judy, June, Helen, Anne, Mary, Pauline, Lydia. From the BEVC Dianne, Jill, Christine, Chris and Lauren.
(if I've missed anyone please let me know.)
