# To those PPC members and supporters who voted      for Prospect Pétanque's "IDEA" - Many thanks!

Messenger Community Awards

Just a quick note to say that while your idea made it to the finals of Messenger Community Grants, it did not gain enough votes to win a $1,000 grant.
We hope to run Messenger Community Grants again next year and I'll email you when we have a date.
Thanks very much for participating - we received many great ideas to benefit the community.
All the best for your project.

Blushing Pamela Ann

Blushing Pamela Ann

                     Pamela Daines...
...was a PPC member for 9 years and did wonderful service as club secretary.

Her husband Sid, commissioned a rose in her memory.
He has generously given our club a prime specimen to plant amongst the club roses.  
The “Blushing Pamela Ann” rose will be a lasting remembrance.

You want trees? - They have trees!

Saint-Paul de Vence, France
   One of the most famous pétanque spots in France, and where Allan Sanderson played pétanque in 2008, is the medieval town of St Paul de Vence - 30 kms west of Nice.
   It was the hang-out of painters such as Chagall and Matisse, and actors Fernandel, Yves Montand and Lino Ventura.
   Many a film shooting got delayed because the actor buddies had to finish their games first...   a matter of priorities.
Thanks to Pétanque America Blog - Saint-Paul de Vence
A café terrace, huge plane trees, and an area of dirt & gravel... the perfect combination.
