On Thursday, November 15, at the clubrooms we had a fundraiser concert for farmers’ drought relief, featuring Greg Dudley. It was an excellent afternoon. He was assisted by Kaye Butler, Allan Richardson and Paul Zito on guitar.
The hamper raffle donated by Shirley Harmes was won by Betty Sharp, while the bottle of wine donated by Allison Lower was won by Shirley Harmes.
Our president Veronica Dowell opened the function with a poem, which was well received.
A considerable amount was raised from the 40 who attended and all had a great afternoon.
