A timely reminder from Pamela O'Connor for the 2016 Bald Archy Exhibition.
"The 2016 Swanpool Bald Archy Exhibition is now more than half way through, closing this Sunday the 4th September 2016 at 4:00pm , Father’s Day.
If you would like a great day out, art that will amuse and bemuse, food that will delight and satisfy and volunteers who will make you feel right at home, then please come. Do not get to Monday the 5th September 2016 and say I should have gone – it will be too late.
Bookings are available so please get a group of 2,4,10,20 or 30 together, you will not be disappointed.
There is an outstanding quilting Exhibition in the Swanpool Bowls Club running at the same time as our Exhibition and co-ordinated by the Benalla Convent Quilters – it is not just a girl’s thing all the men who have gone over from our Exhibition to view it have been impressed, some even saying they may take it up themselves.
The Exhibition opening hours are 10:00am till 4:00pm every day until we close on the 4th September 2016.
Do not be disappointed book now".
Contact Pamela for bookings on 57682400 between 8:30am and 6:00 pm each day or mobile 0409 223 974
