The busy cultural life of our community continues, and 2019 is particularly significant as it marks the 90th anniversary of our Progress Association. The focus of the celebrations will be the October long weekend, when the Tides of Time exhibition will be open in the Hall on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of October. This exhibition will comprise historic photos and other memorabilia loaned by former and current Pearl Beach residents, and will I am sure be of great interest to anyone who would like to know more about the rich cultural history of our unique village. Entry to the exhibition is free, so please come along and bring your family and friends as well.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association will take place as usual in October, but please note that due to the 90th anniversary events on the long weekend, the AGM has been rescheduled to 5pm on Saturday 12th October. The AGM also marks the end of the terms for the Executive Committee, including the office holders. Association members who are interested in nominating to join the Executive Committee will need to submit a nomination form, signed by two financial members. The forms, which will need to be submitted by Saturday 5th October, will be included in the AGM package which you all will receive early September. --Peter Romey
