Extravagant Field Days For Proserpine Orchid And Foliage Society

Now in their 60th year, the Proserpine Orchid and Foliage Society have held their 2023 Field Day.

The Field Day is a special event on the Society’s calendar, inviting guests from neighbouring Orchid and Foliage Societies, as well as local members, to their gardens for the day.

The Proserpine members prepared their extravagant gardens for the event, with special guests coming from Bowen, Townsville, Mackay, Sarina, Homehill, and Ayr for the day.

The day culminated in a cake cutting by club president Mervyn Fuller and honouring of club patron Velma McDonald with a Life Membership Pin and Certificate.

The Proserpine Orchid and Foliage Society meet on the fourth Saturday of the month at 1.30pm at the Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) Hall in Proserpine.
