Friends of the Geelong Botanical Gardens Performance

The GCB Senior Band will be performing as part of the Friends of the Gardens concert series on Sunday February 7th in the new 21st Century Gardens at the Botanical Gardens from 5:00 – 7:30pm. Ticket prices are $10 for singles or $25 for a family of 4 and can be purchased at the gate or from GPAC.

This is the first time that there has been a musical performance in the natural amphitheatre provided in the 21st Century Gardens and weather permitting we are looking forward to performing in this new environment.

So pack a picnic, bring a rug or chair and come and enjoy an outstanding music performance.

Bunnings Sausage Sizzle

A huge thank-you to everyone who assisted at the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle on December 19th. Many thanks to Amanda for all of her hard work in organisating the day for the band. It turned out to be a very busy day with the sale of 110kg of sausages and 25kg of onions between 9am and 5pm. Many thanks to Heather for running around and organising an extra 50kg of sausages when we ran out at 1pm!

All in all we made a profit of just over $2400.
