By January 7, 2009No Comments

Get a copy of Maroondah’s Summer Events Series brochure and make a date with one of the many things to do in Maroondah across the summer months.

Councillor Alex Makin said the calendar of events lists art and craft exhibitions, musical performances, art classes, historic buildings and a number of major community events.

“Wyreena Community Arts Centre has an exhibition by Amanda Ruck commencing on Wednesday 4 February. Enjoy her exquisite collection of paintings capturing the subject of clouds,” said Cr Makin.

“Central Ringwood Community Centre will be holding art classes during the first school term in 2009. Book now to learn the craft of leadlighting or patchwork, or the delicate art of watercolours,” said Cr Makin.

“And if watercolour painting is something you’ve always yearned to try, then the beginner classes at North Ringwood Community House will set you on your way during February and March,” said Cr Makin.

“Come along to the Yarrunga Community Centre with your best voice and join in for an evening of Community Singing on Wednesday 18 March, 2009. They promise a great evening where no singing experience is necessary,” said Cr Makin.

“Balmoral Highland Dancers are holding a highland dancing competition on Saturday 14 March, and Wyreena Music Café begins for 2009 with a range of talented and diverse artists performing on Friday 27 February and 27 March,” said Cr Makin.

Details on these events and many more can be found in Maroondah’s Summer Events Series brochures, available from Council’s Service Centres, the Ringwood and Croydon libraries and other Council facilities. For more information, call Council on 1300 882 233.
