Delia Sansom's 2020 idea and the Peter Crowe books

In anticipation of the 25th Anniversary of the Alfrescoes:
Very early days of the Alfrescoes, photo sent by June featuring (front): Delia, Molly, Margaret H. and Olga -
(back): Ronnie, Margaret B, and June.


About the anniversary in 2020:

David: As the current book holder for the Alfrescoes I would be happy to be custodian of the Crowe/Sampson books and other materials from the early years.
I know that Bob Langford has some books from previous years of the Alfrescoes. I have copied him on this e-mail. Perhaps next year in 2020 we could
arrange to have a special event during one of our regular Friday morning paint-outs where we could have some festivities and have a showing of these books,
materials and photos, and whatever else to celebrate 25 years of the Alfrescoes. What do people think?

Bob: Sounds good. There are materials up island too so ask Dehlia about those. I did a photo book for Frank for his 80th birthday.
i got photos from some people and my own and put together about 60 photos in a book. There are lots of pictures of early groups at christmas parties.
Des and Ken have lots of photos way back. I will work with you to put something together. Ken should be excellent too as he has the graphic skills
and records. I recommend we do a book of photos. Costco has an easy to use system in their photo site.

Ken: Yup… I can dig up some photos if needed. Having a get together’s a Great idea Dave.
