IMG_0360 After a January break, ARtS Narrogin kicked off 2017 with a big thank you to their volunteers.  In 2016, over 11,600 volunteer hours were recorded – a remarkable feat, that contributed to the presentation of a range of events including the Dryandra Country Art, Food and Wine Trail and  The Carol and Peter Taylor Collection exhibition and catalogue.

The support of donors, sponsors, partner organisations, businesses, curators, artists, media representatives and funding bodies is invaluable to ARtS Narrogin however, without the support of our volunteers, we just could not operate.

 IMG_0373  There was quite a good turnout for the Volunteers ‘Thank you’ event at the Mayors Parlour, with the usual yummy nibbles, complimented by a beverage of choice. Old and new faces chatted amongst themselves while drifting out onto the beautifully ornate Town Hall balcony, a portion of which had been cordoned off, in need of repair. One of our members, who shall remain nameless, jumped over the rope and tested out the floor by jumping up and down on it, to see if that was the issue! It wasn’t, thankfully. The action drew an immediate reaction from Deborah, sorting the culprit out. High jinx indeed! Amid an enjoyable couple of hours there was laughter, smiles, good humour and camaraderie. Well done Deborah, for your continued commitment at ARtS Narrogin.

  Despite miserable weather the weekend before, February turned on some sun and saw us treated to the cool sounds of the Daniel Susnjar Afro-Peruvian Jazz Group, touring with Bri Clark as part of the Wheatbelt Touring Circuit.  Supported by the amazingly talented and very popular local act Russell & Tom, locals enjoyed a Sunday afternoon on the grass at Mackie Park with family and friends listening to some great live music.  Roll on next month’s offering!!
