Presidents Message and October 2013 Newsletter

Dear Members,

Planning for the exhibition is steaming ahead. Your entry form is in this newsletter. Please read all the times and dates very carefully as we have some changes and difficulties to cope with. We are not allowed into the Maureen Grierson Centre until 8.30 on 7th November because other people are using the hall until then. So we plan simply to deliver all the screens and lights and then get to the centre early (8 am) on Friday to do all the setting up. All hands to the pump with Avis in charge.

The judges will be invited to come at 2.30pm so all must be done by then.

Your paintings will have to be delivered on Thursday night (along with all the gear) and we need a couple of volunteers to write them in and record and store them safely. If this is something you can do between 8.30 and 9.30 on Thursday 7th. Please email me at amrice1@bigpond .com We also need someone to volunteer to write and print the catalogue. Let me know what you can do to help make this exhibition a great success.

Don’t forget the Busy Bee to clean the screens on Sunday 20th October in preparation for our November Exhibition. Celestine will be bringing the high pressure hose.

All volunteers please contact Anne Rice, ph: 9345 1348

After the exhibition, we will have a pleasant run down to the end of the year and our Christmas Party. We will need to have a sub-committee to organize it. Please email me if you would like to get involved. It is always a highlight and a very happy event. Rayma’s raffle for her Margaret Olley limited edition painting will be drawn then.

With happy anticipation
Anne Rice
