UPDATE ON ELECTION DAY STALLS

 Hi Members

Once again our Gallery will be used on the 31st October for Election Day.

If Members wish to have a stall on the day, selling either new or used items,

please contact Lorraine Magowen Ph 5499 3531  by Wednesday the 28th October. To reserve

your stall the cost is $5,00 and will mostly be on the front verandah.  (if you need a table let Lorraine

know when booking your stall.)

Parking will be behind the Gallery for those having a stall, as the front will be required for voting public.

Importantly set up by 7.30 am, a bright early start. We hope to have a sausage sizzle and cake stall

organised on the day, it will be a great opportunity to sell your Art of Craft.

 

FROM MARIE BROWNING

It was lovely to welcome Shirley & Graham Robinson when they dropped in for a visit at the Gallery today, They are back in town for a short time, Shirley is a past President of the Artisans Guild and she and Graham were very hard workers during their time with the Guild. So nice to have old friends visit.
