The 2016 Lilium and Bulb show presentations

Held on February 3rd at The Village Well in Aldgate.

Over 40 members and their partners sat down to a delicious meal provided by the volunteer ladies from the Aldgate Village Well Church of Christ, to celebrate the presentation of awards won at the recent (January) annual lilium show.

Jeffery Boden did his usual round with his computer tablet, grabbing very good images of tables of friends, and publishing them overnight on his Facebook page. He can be seen in one of our images (below) shooting one of these images for Facebook. The view on his screen shows one of his publisher images.

Jeff was one of those who received awards during the evening.

Greg Ruckert kindly donated a pair of beautiful potted Scadoxis Katheranii for raffling during the evening. The raffle was won by Jeanette Keough, with our newest member, Colin Pitman winning the second prize of a (smaller) version of the winner’s plant. In the process, Greg raised a tidy sum to go into Society coffers!

Major award recipients were:-
Jeffery Boden - Lady Haywood award
Nancye Kopunic - Australian Lilium Society award
Murray Corby - Lew and Lucy Ryder award
Margaret Jenkins - Highest aggregate points

Marg Jenkins’s bowl was turned and donated by Charles Greig, awarded for the highest aggregate points in the monthly competition for 2015.
