The Tin Can Bay Craft Club celebrated the end of a successful year on the 10th of December with a Christmas party at the Tin Can Bay Country Club restaurant.

There were ninety members dining and enjoying the party. Sadly, the club will be in recess until the 21st of January so Thursday mornings are going to be a bit dull until then.

Our numbers keep growing as women on the Cooloola Coast hear about our friendly club and the varied craft projects introduced. The craft calendar for 2016 is being formulated with some new ideas ready for our first meeting in January. The AGM was held on the 24th of November for the new office bearers to be elected.

They are, President, Penny Melton, Secretary, Sue Tooes, Treasurer, Sue Maddison. Positions of Vice President, Assistant Secretary and Assistant Treasurer were filled.

The many tasks which help run the club smoothly such as, tea ladies, librarian, photocopier, craft cupboard and assets organiser and lastly, publicity officer were elected from the floor.

The club meet at the Cooloola Coast Community Complex, Thursdays 9am to 12 noon.

Contact for information, President Penny Melton phone 5486 2512.
