Members of the Lunenburg Art Society attended the Town of Lunenburg Council meeting on Tuesday, December 10, 2019. We've been operating for 48 years in Lunenburg, so we thought it was time to update our image and tell Council  about our current role and aspirations.
Participating in the five-minute pop-up show were (l-r) Gary Selig, Wendy Muise, Wesley Lowe, and Rudy Kehkla, and Jan Hull (not shown).
On Tuesday, January 14, Council approved our request for funds to help promote the works of Earl Bailly. We are grateful to the Town Council and staff for their interest in and support of the Lunenburg Art Society.
