SASA 2022 AGM

At our members’ meeting on Thursday 24 February, we had both the AGM and the drawing competition, with the newly-added sketchbook section.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The formalities came first, with Solly Gutman – thanks Solly – doing his usual well-practiced job in the chair.  Liz Pearson kicked off the meeting with her slide-presentation of the President’s Report. It was quite amazing to see what SASA achieved during this past year, considering that we were dealing with a whole batch of new problems with COVID still very much in the picture. An in depth financial report was delivered by SASA’s very competent treasurer, Mike Forrester.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had to say goodbye to three of our council members, as Adrian Larkin, Julie Ann Lock and Chris Reabow all stepped down – thank you for all you did while on council – but luckily Adrian will still be involved with the running of Art in the Park. We have three new council members stepping in to take their places – Sonja Frenz, Lynne Menge and Cliff Davies – welcome you three. We do still have room on the council for two more, so please think about volunteering, as we can’t run the society without a council!

 

 

 

 

 

The hall was quite full – social-distancing style – so thank you to all members who came. The AGM obviously needs a quorum to take place at all. For the drawing competition, what was lacking in quantity was made up in quality and we had some very beautiful drawings to choose from and vote for.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The winners for the evening were: First place, Sonja Frenz, with “Feeding Frenzy”, second was Liz Pearson, with “The Rope” and in third place was Marina Herbst with “Treasure on its Way”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sketch-book section of the competition was won by Lyn Northam. Well done to our winners and a very big Thank You to Deckle Edge for the very generous donation of the prizes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to all our council members for all the work you do for our society, it is most appreciated….especially Avril’s delicious catering!
