Discussion at the meeting included finalizing gardens for Open Gardens in October, erection of the eagle, engraving and installation of plaque at the official unveiling at 2pm September 3, 2019 and it is hoped a few local VIPs will attend. Everyone is welcome.

The eagle sculpture will be erected on the corner of O'Brien and Warraderry Streets.

The September meeting will follow at Unwind Grenfell at approximately 3pm.

The club is gaining momentum with many varied activities and projects.

The two major ones being the Poppy Project which involved the whole community and attracted visitors from far and wide and raised the profile of our club and the current Wedgetail Eagle Commission which it is hoped will add to the variety attractions for the town. An eagle was chosen as an icon of a strong community.
