Our meeting on Saturday 9 March, was the AGM and was held before the activity for the afternoon was actioned by Dawn.
At the AGM, the Secretary and Chairman agreed to continue as Officers. Pat Gauntlett decided to retire due to medical problems. Thanks were given for all her work with the branch, and she was presented with a card, chocolates and orchids, Pat was the person who started the Northern Branch.
For the afternoons engraving Dawn gave us all a glass square and asked us to engrave a linier square pattern, using the lines to show dark and light, then transfer that method to create a picture of an animal. Very interesting results were produced.
We had a lovely lunch and an excellent day was had by all
