President´s Corner

It's hard to believe that we have just one more meeting before we close our season; the Club has had a fantastic year! We can boast of great performances by our members and their guests, we celebrated our 114th birthday and our Silver Tea was a unabashed success. Well done all, and a special thank you to Joan Reid – Silver Tea Chair, and to my co-Chair of the Young Artist Competition, Sue Waller.

We can look forward this month to performances by the winners of our Young Aritist Competition. Seven young students stood out from the many competitors, and we'll have the pleasure of listening to them during our May concert and award ceremony. It's is going to be unbelievable!

The public, friends and family are always welcome. If you were not able attend the Silver Tea, you can still make your generous, tax-free donation on our Support page.

Hope to see you soon,
Katy Wilson
