The ‘Friends Of The Gallery’ is one way people can be involved in the Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery if they can’t be a committee member or volunteer of the gallery. Your Membership will support the gallery committee in their effortst to maintain and advance the gallery, and other benefits and you will also recieve the informative ‘Gustav Newsletter’ which has stories and also event notifications. A yearly membership only costs $15.00 – which we think is great value.
Want to find out more? Call in to the Gallery during open times, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 10am to 2pm, or contact us from the website eudundaheritage.com or facebook.com
