The Hervey Bay Art Society was honoured to have both our state member of parliament and club patron Ted Sorensen and our mayor George Seymour attend our annual member’s exhibition presentations. It was great to have them on hand to present the awards. They have both always shown great support to the Hervey Bay Art Society.
At the presentation, for his sterling and enthusiastic support over many years, Ted Sorensen was presented with an honorary lifetime membership of the Hervey Bay Art Society. Thank you from all members of the society.
Events like the annual members exhibition don’t just happen. Events take place because people work to make them happen. So acknowledgement and thanks to the committee members and other volunteers who helped organise and stage this event.
