“BRING A TREASURE” EVENT
Upon completion of the AGM, members were invited to take part in the annual “Bring a Treasure” Event. This provides members with opportunity to display a treasured item and to tell of its history and what it means to them. This is always an enjoyable event, but this year members exceeded expectations! Our members really do have some absolute treasures and I’m sure we will all look forward to next year’s offerings. – LW
