Following our breakfast meeting on Tuesday, the Jacaranda Festival committee met with Cathy Day representing the City of Melville.  Cathy had some excellent news in relation to the City's sponsorship of the festival with a new agreement for a second three year period from 2020 -2022. There was also an increase in sponsorship for which the committee unanmiously agreed for president Barry to sign the new agreement. 
Cathy said the City is  very supportive of this annual event which draws community people together and highlights a precinct to many visitors to the district from across Perth.  Further to this the Jacaranda Festival aligns with the City's vision of showcasing a safe, liveable, community-orientated and sustainable locality.
Jacaranda Festival committee chair, Kenn Williams, thanked the City of Melville for their continued financial support and to Cathy for her tremendous support for Applecross Rotary and the Jacaranda Festival.
