LIFE MEMBERSHIP NOMINATION
Marie Browning was nominated for Life Membership.
Marie joined the Guild in 1996 and soon became involved
as a Committee Member and been there ever since. She
has been working as Secretary since 2009, without a break,
and committed to yet another year (with some assistance)It
is only the concern for the continuation of the Guild to keep
operating, that has made Marie take the role on yet again.
This selflessness and the hours demanded by the position
has affected her own enjoyment and creativity of her Art,
something most Members take for granted. It was a
unanimous vote for Marie’s Life membership.
