We have to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everybody who attended our paintings and postcard exhibition on Saturday 30th September, and also the coffee morning on Wednesday 4th October in the kirk hall.
The weather on Saturday was fine and we had a great turnout. There was much discussion and finger pointing at the old postcards displayed, and there were some surprises in the variety of paintings as well. Although this was not a professional display, we had many complimentary comments on how as amateurs, we had set things up, and it was good to see so many people take an interest in the history and heritage of the Royal Burgh. We hope to have enough material to do something similar in the future. Thanks to everyone involved putting on the show.
The sale of our polo and t shirts, (polos currently on order) plus postcard prints, greatly helped in raising a total of £1424.77 for the Saturday. The Wednesday coffee morning and raffle also raised another £484.
This has been a great few weeks fundraising, and as well as meeting old friends, making new ones. We have other ideas which need consideration and organising, but be assured there will be events in the future. We look forward to seeing many of you again.
