                               WHAT IS ON IN THE GALLERY
The Korean Women’s exhibition will be on for the whole month of February. If last year’s exhibition
is anything to go by, it will be a wonderful show, so drop into the Gallery and be inspired!
General Meeting for February is on the 11th. The meeting will start at 7.30 sharp and will be
followed by a demonstration by Yvonne Langshaw. Yvonne is one of our favourite demonstrators,
because she is very generous in sharing her knowledge and techniques. You are assured to go
home with plenty of new ideas. Please come and bring your friends.
                           NEW MEMBERS’ ORIENTATION DAY
Lindsey Bergin will hold a new members’ orientation day on Thursday 7 February . To book please

                       from your committee
What a great start to the year! The PA System is                         installed and proved its worth
during our Christmas Party. Thank you Feisal                                 and thank you Tony for your
assistance. The PA System, as well as a new                                     ladder and a small and a
large trolley are courtesy of the Federal                                       Government.
We also have a new accounting system:                                          Grahame Vidler has
streamlined the MYOB software on the Gallery’s               computer and been of invaluable help to
Annie, our new Treasurer, by entering all the                 combined Society’s and Gallery’s credits
and debits! Many thanks for your help, Grahame.                We hope you are impressed with the
increase in computer memory and the new flat                   screen monitor! Thanks for that also,
Feisal! Thanks also to Keith Stockley for                   auditing the books last year.

The Raffles were drawn at the Christmas                   Party and congratulations go to Sally Pavitt, who
won Phillip Rochaix’s bushland painting                   and to Mrs. Longmuir, who has given a loving
home to Josephine Anne Smith’s beautiful           birds [painting!].

Christine Zey, the Roster co-ordinator, will soon be back from overseas. Ruth has managed the
Roster in her absence and would like to surprise Christine with a FULLY BOOKED ROSTER FOR
FEBRUARY! Contact Ruth on 9484 4304 for YOUR time-slot.
