Again, this year was a great success with several entries in
all four categories. The winning exhibits were as follows:
Pre-School/Infants: Kendall Community Pre-School
Primary School:   Bryce Cawley
Secondary School: Camden Haven High School
Open Section:     Marion Woodnutt
The judge considered the standard at least equal to last
year, awarding a First Prize in each category, and three
Highly Commended awards. Presentation of the Exhibition
and Winners Certificates was on Friday night 18th November
2011. This year we introduced a change by having the exhi-
bition at our local Services Club. A new innovation for this
year was ‘Recycle Yourself’, a Dinner on Saturday 19th No-
vember, catered for at the local Services Club. The purpose
of this addition was to recycle clothing from our Op-Shop, or
clothing that you had forgotten about, buried in the Ward-
robe at home.
Being the first of such dinners, we attracted 30 people, all
being dressed in recycled gear. This was a fun dinner and a
huge success with all attendees participating in a positive
manner to the purpose of ‘Recycling’. The success of the
dinner gives the committee positive endorsement to pursue
a similar fun dinner next year. Of course the committee will
need to look closely at our presentation of this competition
in 2012, but, we have received such positive ‘feed back’ that

People travelled from far and wide plus our locals to hear      THE MEETING PLACE CAFE
from horticultural expert, Attila Kapitany, who had jour-
neyed from Melbourne to tell us about the beauty and use-
fulness of native succulent plants large and small which are    SERVING MORNING TEA AND
also drought and fire-resistant.                                LUNCH FROM 10.00AM TILL
His information about our native Bottle ‘Trees’ which are
actually succulents, introduced the audience to the idea of

Queensland Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestris) found in
the drier areas of Central Queensland grows magnificently
on the streets of Roma. Attila showed a beautiful one
growing in his suburban Melbourne garden.                             EAT INDOORS OR OUT ON THE DECK
The other Bottle Tree, the Boab, Adansonia gregori grows in

water storage tissue that expands and contracts depending

on the available water.
Attila quickly dispelled the idea that there were only a few           AT KENDALL COMMUNITY
native succulents. There are endless varieties of shapes,
sizes and colours. They require minimal care and work                         CENTRE

bulbs and even vegetables.                                                               PLUS!
Attila and his wife Michele brought many plants with them
and these were quickly snapped up by the audience. They                     KENDALL BAZAAR
also donated some books on native succulents to the Kend-
all Garden Club library.                                        Selling fresh, local homegrown vegetables, herbs,
