✔ We want to thank Sylvia Heterick for the years she has volunteered as Publicity Officer – thank you on behalf of the membership. Karen Munster has volunteered to take her place and will be advertising events in the future. Welcome aboard Karen!
✔ Thanks also to Sarah Elliott, our youngest member, who volunteered as Newsletter Editor. Due to her hectic load of schoolwork and other activities, Sarah is unable to continue. Andrea Quinn has kindly volunteered to take on this responsibility.
✔ Due to health problems, Mary Jane Turk is unable to continue as treasurer after the next AGM, but will stay on as Membership Officer. As we cannot remain as an art society without a treasurer, the position is open to any member with basic bookkeeping skills. We trust that with 70 members (and more joining), there will be someone to take over the role. Please don’t be shy about approaching Mary Jane and she will clarify the details.
