TOO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS?
EMMA McBride, Shadow Assistant Minister For Mental Health, Shadow Assistant Minister for Carers and Member for Dobell is spreading some early festive cheer by calling for entries in her annual Christmas card design competition. This year she will be holding the Dobell Christmas Card competition for senior artists.
The design should represent the Central Coast and can be produced on any medium, provided it can be scanned or photographed. Many seniors are brilliant artists, so she is looking forward to seeing their designs. In previous years she has given the opportunity to school students to design the card, so this year it was decided that it was time for eniors to showcase their talents. The closing date for entries is Monday, November 4. Entries may be posted to PO Box 3763, Tuggerah NSW 2259.
To contact Emma's office, phone 02 4353 0127 for more information.
