Presentation of the Turner-Committee Cup for 2018.
The Club received a new Cup last year, kindly donated by the club's founder members Harold and Joan Turner.
The committee discussed how this cup should be awarded. Since we have several awards for paintings at our annual exhibition, it was decided that this cup should be awarded to a club member who has shown dedication and support towards the Art club over a long period of time.
There are clearly a good few members who fall into this category, and I’m sure over the coming years they will be considered for this award. This year we had to make an initial decision, so the award goes to Linda Marshall.
A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEMBER BETTY MATTICK
