Volunteers Week 13th-20th

Dear Mullum Gardens Folk,

Here is your weekly reminder email of all the fun-tastic activities and events happening this week. Hope to see you volunteers out and about enjoying the festivities for a change (instead of running them :).
A HUGE thank you to EVERYONE who has put energy, time, love, laughter, gusto, muscle, humour, knowledge, experience and friendships into the Mullum Community Gardens to help make it the amazing community asset it is today. Quite simply, it wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you. No matter how little, long, regular or sporatic your time has been at the gardens, it is and always will be very appreciated by the community . Good on you for working for the love of it! And we all love you for it!
A notice from Pippy, our Volunteer Coordinator:
” Hi everybody,
First of all, *:x lovestruck Happy Mother’s Day *:x lovestruck to all the mothers.

This week is ‘Thanks a Million’ week celebrating volunteers all across Australia. I have been helping Cherie and a team of wonderful volunteers to put on a week of free events at the Byron Community Centre for all the volunteers in the Byron Shire. THAT MEANS YOU!

All volunteers at the garden are welcome to participate in any or all of the events for free all week. Just show up and say you volunteer for the garden or “Pippy sent you” and you are in. The only thing you have to book for the Bush Dance on Thursday evening, so if you want to come email or message me and I will make a group booking.

Bring the kids along and the partners it will all be lots of fun. Meanwhile see you all on Tuesday @ the garden.. lots of more fun things to do this week. The garden is feeling the love and attention you have been giving it and it is gleaming, you can feel the love and joy when you walk through the gates and this is because of you !

The volunteers and the members giving their knowledge, hard work, love and dedication to make the MCG the beautiful garden paradise it is . “THANKS A MILLION” WE *:x lovestruck our vollies… get a taste of being appreciated……..
