The Friends of Hazelhurst are becoming busier with a growing membership, and it is our aim to be inclusive, amiable and welcoming. The Friends host Morning Teas and Wine & Cheese evenings – both accompanied by a free talk and guided gallery tour. Regional Gallery Exhibition openings feature a FOH ra e, and our Heart to HeARTS talks (now called artztalk) are very popular.

As a result of the recent AGM, a few vacancies are available, including non-committee helpers. The Committee roles available are:

Secretary: a standard Executive Committee role, mainly responsible for monthly meeting’s agendas and minutes.

Cottage Coordinator: (new role) – liaise with the Hazelhurst team to make full use of our Friends Room in our heritage cottage.

Special Events Coordinator: (new role) – help promote and organise a Friends table at Hazelhurst events like Market and Fest days.

Wall of Art Coordinator: Organise the display of art at Sutherland Library and other venues.

In non-committee roles, we need Friends willing to be called upon to help in different ways. For instance, raffle ticket sellers at exhibition openings; assistance on the Friends table at Hazelhurst events; writers (don’t have to be Miles Franklin Award standard) who could help with articles for our quarterly newsletter; lending a welcoming hand at events; being a back-up for others.

Please contact our 2017 President, Robert Mander for more information on our FOH organisation and to discuss how you can become involved: manderrobert@optusnet.com.au or 0434 555 412.

If you would like information on becoming a Hazelhurst Volunteer on the Regional Gallery desk, please contact Caryn Schwartz, Hazelhurst Admin, CSchwartz@ssc.nsw.gov.au or 8536 5700.
