New president for arts and crafts centre
Ms Gwynneth Weir has taken over as president of the Ettalong Beach Arts and Crafts Centre following the retirement of Ms Penny Howard who held the position for three years.
The centre's annual general meeting was held on Monday, March 13, and elections were held for places on the committee for the coming year.
In line with the constitution, having served three years, Ms Howard was required to stand down as president.
"Penny has worked tirelessly for the centre during her term as president and introduced many things that have made a significant difference," said incoming president, Ms Weir.
"We shall continue to benefit from these changes in the years to come."
Ms Howard will continue to serve on the committee.
Thelma Browne and Dorothy Mulholland will also remain on the committee.
Ms Weir said: "All the executive and support positions on the committee have been filled by members who are keen to keep our special organisation running on an even keel and looking to the future.
"We are fortunate to have a strong membership and welcome all who join us with fresh ideas and enthusiasm to help keep our centre vibrant and relevant to the needs of the community.
"At the last count there were 44 people waiting to join our classes.
"Our waiting list system ensures that places are allocated fairly.
"We are always looking for ways to accommodate more students but we do not want to increase class sizes as we want to continue to ensure each student has sufficient access to the tutor."
