Ladies Day 8 October 2014
After a rainy couple of days 22 members left the Clubrooms in brilliant sunshine and headed to the Round House in Murray Bridge where we were greeted by members of the Historical Society and treated to a beautiful Devonshire Tea.
While we were having morning tea the spokesman for the Society (Peter Harden) gave us a very informative talk on past days of Murray Bridge. I think we all found out things we didn’t know about our town. The rooms of the Round House are decorated in the style of that era.
We then drove to Tailem Bend for a “Pit Stop” before heading out to the Pangarinda Arboretum off Ferry Road at Wellington.
We drove through the Arboretum and found a flat spot with some shade. We had lunch and several members decided to walk around the pathways to view the native plants and flowers. Although looking a little worse for wear due to the weather most plants were still flowering beautifully, thanks to the volunteers who look after them.
After our walk the answers to the quiz were given and the results will be known at Presentation Night (there were a great many “ohs and ahs”).
Around 3 pm we all decided to call it a day and headed off through the Arboretum and back to Murray Bridge via Tailem Bend or across the ferry to Wellington.
It was a very pleasant way to spend the day and thanks to those members who participated.
