NEWSFLASH - Tree Day Planting and celebration -

NEWS FLASH Our face painting expert, Linda, will NOT be able to attend the Tree Day Planting & Celebration, sorry kids. However, as a special treat, a coffee truck will be on site during the morning supplying free hot drinks for the planters. This, along with the Free BBQ and entertainment courtesy of our raving musician, Edvardo, the planting surely will be an enormous success. According to the Weather Bureau, Sunday will be 15 degrees Celsius with a slight chance of a shower so all’s good for a pleasant planting and celebration of the Kororoit Creek environment. Looking forward to seeing you there. Cheers Geoff
