General Business:

• Gloria has sent a letter of support for Carolyn Hoernel, a member, and Secretary of RedArts, and one of our sponsors for the Youth Art Awards. She will apply for a grant for a workshop “On building Skills for grant applications” to be held on Macleay Island.

• Gloria has been invited to speak to a High School student assembly about the Youth Art Awards in the coming months.

• Our driveway is due for a fix-up, so Glenn, our Maintenance Officer, and Norman Bain, will be arranging to fill the pot-holes. Glenn has also moved the hook in the storeroom nearer to the door for hanging of the flags.

• Karen Munster and Jodi Van Der Pligt have prepared flyers for members to distribute for our Autumn exhibition and our Mini -Market in June. Flyers can be found in the Publicity Pouch on the notice board.

• Karen has also left details for those on roster on how “to hang the flags for exhibitions”. They are on the wall next to the flags in the storeroom.

• Our mini-market will be on Sunday June 3rd , from 10:00am to 3:00pm, Kathryn Christense is responsible for the MINI- MARKET – if members would like to participate, please contact her for details: 0412 638 768
