The 2021 Garden Christmas Party BBQ was held in the garden on Friday 10 December. What follows is the contents of the email sent out by SBCG Membership Secretary Deb Powers (with just a bit of extra added for clarification purposes by yours truly). So, if you couldn’t make it this year, keep in mind the Australia Day Afrekete Festival will be happening later next month in the garden.
You definitely won’t want to miss all the dancing, food and libations and overall festive atmosphere of that one.
So, see you in the garden and here’s to a bigger and better 2022.
Now, About that Party
What a wonderful SBCG Christmas party we had. In all, the total numbers would be in the neighbourhood of around 50 members and their families.
The weather was perfect with temps in the mid to upper 20s and no humidity to speak of. Even the mozzies behaved for the night.
Everywhere I looked, people were smiling, laughing and eating. And after so much rain, all amidst some incredibly healthy and vibrant-looking garden plots. Such an amazing setting to have and share with the community.
Thank you everyone for your share plates. The range of food was just so good and eclectic. Everything from snags and
chicken to Annie’s ‘rice sausages’ and authentic Thai Green Payaya Salad. Between that and the many chips and dips, cheeses and numerous delicious desserts, everyone was spoiled for choice.
Thanks to Mary and Natalia for cooking the sausages, chicken and onions. In the end, it almost goes without saying, there was nothing left.
Thanks to Jim for the Christmas tablecloths and the decorations. They looked great and added to the festive cheer.
Thank you to everyone who joined the party. It was lots of fun.
To our members, prospective members, your families and friends – we wish you all a very joyous Christmas and a safe new year.
We have some great events coming up in 2022 and we look forward to seeing you at them.
Your SBCG Committee
