ART GALLERY: A lovely evening was had by all with over 40 in attendance for the official opening of 'Explorations' by Di Franks, Wendy Hawthorn and Coralie Crouch. The exhibition will run until Wednesday November 30.
Art is a journey that takes us in a variety of directions. We want the viewer to engage with our artwork and discover their own interpretations and responses. The artist can stay with what feels safe or venture in new directions and learn new information, techniques and processes. People often say to us that "there is such variety in our art". That is because we enjoy experimenting with and exploring the techniques and purposes of art and in that way, we learn more about ourselves as artists.
GRENFELL RED CROSS: Red Cross will be hosting a Melbourne Cup afternoon tea at the Country Club on November 1 from 1.30pm for a 2pm start - Cost $10.

COLEAMBALLY LIONS' CONVENTION: Last weekend Lions from District 201N4 travelled to Coleambally for the 62nd Annual Convention.
The N4 District covers a massive portion of NSW from Winmalee in the east to Bourke in the west and from Tumut in the south to Coonamble in the north and most towns in between.
It was amazing to see so many in attendance, as floodwater and closed roads stopped many.
A vibrant and harmonious community with beautiful gardens and streets named after local birds, the town was established in 1968 to service the Coleambally Irrigation Area. It's the State's newest town and was fully planned. An RV Friendly town, located on the Kidman Way between Darlington Point and Jerilderie. It is an innovative and robust agricultural centre. Over 90 businesses are located in the township area, with serviced industrial land readily available to investors.
The story of Coleambally is a story built on water. The community was explicitly built to take advantage of the additional water made available by the Snowy Mountains Scheme.
We travelled via Bimbi, Barmedman, Aria Park, Barellan, Griffith and struck the horrendous storm from Darlington Point to Coleambally. At Darlington Point, SES personnel were on hand for emergencies as the caravan park was already underwater.
Travelling home, as roads were closed or ready to be closed, we came via West Wyalong and struck water between Wyalong and Marsden.
Friday night was a social evening, Saturday the business sessions were held as well as two bus tours around the region. A farm -themed Saturday evening where presentations were made was enjoyed by all, followed by the memorial service for Lions and members of their families who passed away since the last convention.
Lions Ray Brown, John Harveyson, Peter Young, Rod Harveyson, PDG John Skelton and Lions Lady Edith Taylor were remembered during the service.
