CAN YOU SHARE YOUR FUNDRAISING IDEAS?
At times, Friends groups face financial challenges and need to raise substantial funds. As you are aware, Councils can suddenly reduce or remove their support – Shepparton and Port Augusta are currently in this category. The AAFBG Committee is compiling a list of fundraising ideas to share with you all. Please contribute ideas for events which your group has found successful.
2019 SUBSCRIPTIONS – Many Still Due
Has your group has paid its 2019 subscription? In order for members to vote at the AGM, they must be financial. Payments can be made by downloading the Renewal Form above or via https://friendsbotanicgardens.org
Help: We received $50 by direct transfer from J. O’Sullivan & M. O’Connor on 31st March. No reference was given. If you recognise the names, please let me know.
