The Annual Community Dinner this year will be held at the Hall on Saturday 15th June. Details are:
Date: Saturday 15th June
Time: 6:15pm for 7:00pm
Bookings: Contact one of the Committee members, (Bill 0433 656 803 or Terry 0414824110) or through www.trybooking.com.au, “Cherry Gardens Community Dinner”.
Closing Date: Friday 31st May

We will again have a 3-course meal, mulled wine on entry, entertainment and an opportunity to meet with other residents of Cherry Gardens. You will recall we had a full house last year, so make sure you book early, and please note the closing date for bookings.
As part of the upgrade of the Hall, the committee obtained a quote to cap the facias. They are in very poor repair, and capping will be a better option than ongoing maintenance and painting.
We have had a very good relationship with the Blackwood Lions Club for a number of years, so we approached them to see if they would be able to assist by donating half of the $1,900 cost. We were delighted when they advised that they would meet the full cost of the project.
They have been very supportive of the Hall, and we continue to assist at the Bargain Centre on Shepherds Hill Road on Saturday mornings.
At a recent Working Bee a watering system was installed by committee members at the front and side of the hall. We planted some shrubs last year, but they struggled through our very dry season. Using a tap timer we hope to keep everything alive, adding to the appearance of the Hall.
Remember to visit the Hall Facebook page. We will be acknowledging the Lions assistance, and you will be kept updated on functions and other happenings at the Hall.
