Thanks to Pam for chairing the May Branch Meeting. Also welcoming the
new Members on the night.
By all accounts the Silo Art Tour organised by Chris was enjoyed by all who went (please read the report in our newsletter).
Lorraine and I had a great week at Barham (NSW), just across the Murray River between Swan Hill and Echuca. Enjoyed the bus tour each day to various places of interest around the area. Anyone interested feel free to ask us about it.
