7 Pioneer Women-June 2015 So what next? We have another exhibition about to be developed with a completion date of early next year. There are also 2 more temporary exhibitions lined up for September & October this year. Another film night before the end of the year and in September we will be having Asante Sana choir here again. Last years performance by this choir was extremely successful for all and we look forward this years performance. Our community groups continue to use this space, we hope to continue building relationships with local community groups and encourage you come in, see the place and see if it fits your needs. We also extend a big welcome to local crafters on the last Sunday of the month between 1.30-4pm come in with your craft and have a chat, there is no cost to you to join this group. Alice Springs is also busy with events over the coming months kicking off with the Alice Springs Show, Drovers Ball, Camel cup & of course the famous and very entertaining Henley on Todd boat race through our dry river bed! Before we know it Christmas will be upon us. I have included a membership form in this edition as memberships are due for renewal now. This annual membership fee helps to keep us going and at $22 for individuals, $33 for households or $330 for life membership it is still very affordable. We now have over 800 members but we need to ensure our membership continues to grow and our current members continue to renew membership. If you know someone that would be interested in becoming a member please forward them a copy of this newsletter or contact this office to have a membership form sent to you. Last but by no means least, who has a couple of hours a week that they might like to volunteer here with us. We welcome everyone and would love to add to the list of volunteers we currently have. There are quite a variety of jobs available for our volunteers to do, such as, greeting visitors at reception in the shop, tour guiding, cataloguing, gardening or working with our curator. We are also looking at taking on a couple, Grey Nomads with your own caravan to live onsite here in exchange for a total of 24 hrs a week volunteer work plus a small charge to cover electricity costs. So put the word out to your interstate friends that might be headed this way soon for a holiday & have Any interested parties contact me (Trudy) for further details.
