We had a very interesting workshop in August. Members had been given a era to interpret . for example Victorian, Eygptian, Georgian periods. The members had researched their given era & we had had some fantastic designs produced.
We were pleased to receive a visit from The Redlands Mayor Karen Williams. Karen had come along to see our new PA system in action. We had received a grant from Redlands City Council which enabled us to purchase a PA System which is proving very benifical to our members hearing clearly our demonstrators. The Mayor Karen Williams , Cr Kim- Maree Hardman and Cr Alan Beard contributed to the project which was received through the Councillors’ Small Grants Program.
It was good to be able to thank the Mayor and she mingled with the members during the workshop. Lila our little follower who has come along with her Mum Sarah to our meetings since she was a baby now enjoys making her own floral arrangements and was very happy to Present Mayor Karen with a small posy of flowers called a Tussie Mussie, which victorian ladies always carried. See our Photos below.
The Bench Title this Month was ‘Take Two Flowers’
We had a fantastic Display as you will see from The Gallery below.
