Hervey Bay Art Society Patron, Mayor George Seymour, gave a short speech thanking Hervey Bay Art Society for being a community where artists can thrive by helping each other and noted that the society added to the cultural vibrancy of the Fraser Coast. His attendance at this event, his encouraging words and the great support he has given to the Hervey Bay Art Society are greatly appreciated.
