MORNING TEA – CABOOLTURE VIEW CLUB Thurs 2/9/2021
The Guild was privileged to host a morning tea for the Caboolture View Club Thursday morning. This group is comprised of very caring, lovely people who are a valued part of The Smith Family actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for this vital Organisation. Our guests were invited to enjoy the art and craftwork on display as well as the extensive array of food and drinks provided by our Members.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers who helped make this such a wonderful and pleasant event. The huge variety and abundance of food made ‘doggie’ bags popular. Well done to all.
Greta has contributed her time for decades to the craft working together group. She has helped many people achieve their goals and acted as a taxi for people who don’t have transport. A dedicated worker, she has given total commitment to serve the Artisans Guild of Caboolture and District. (Posted by Terry Young MP)
