Week Starting 18th July 2022

Merriwa Festival of the Fleeces

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

With the proposed restructure and incorporation of the Festival of the Fleeces (FoTF) committee, we are seeking expressions of interest for committee members and the election of office bearers at an annual general meeting (AGM).
 
The meeting will be held on the 9th August at 6pm at the Merriwa RSL (in Squatters Corner). The current working group and committee would appreciate as many people as possible at the AGM.
 
The AGM is being called by the Chairman, Ron Campbell, in August in order to give the newly formed, independent committee maximum time to plan and progress next year’s festival.
