PPN - SPRING LUNCH AT ELGEE PARK

Elgee-Park-Winery2-WebDear Past Parents,

We warmly invite you to an afternoon in Elgee Park VIC - visiting the Elgee Park Wines, vineyard first planted in 1972.
The Baillieu Myer family purchased the original part of the property from Dr Hugh Trumble in 1958 and continued honouring its name Elgee Park.
Today Elgee Park comprises 800 acres of which 150 acres are native bushlands and 10 acres are vineyard. It is also home to the Yulgilbar Quarter Horse Stud, and used for growing and fattening Santa Getrudis Steers.

For those arriving early, at 11.00am there will be an opportunity for a morning guided tour of the Park Sculpture Collection.
At 12.30pm – the formal arrival time, you will be welcomed with a glass of sparkling. A sumptuous smorgasbord lunch and a relaxed gathering with other past parents will follow, with a brief address from Wine Estate Manager on the history of the Park.
Coffee/tea and desserts will round off the afternoon.
For those who wish to take an afternoon (repeat) guided tour of the Park Sculpture Collection, this will be available between 2.30pm and 3pm.
The PPN AGM will be held at 3.30pm.

We invite you to join us for this opportunity to spend a few hours enjoying Spring in its glory and another happy, friendly afternoon with friends and GGS Past Parent community – bring your family along, as all are welcome.
For those of you residing interstate or outside of Australia - if you are in the region at the time, we would love to have you join us!
