Art expo treasures young people

OCEAN Shores Art Expo Committee has responded to Byron Youth Service's call for community support by donating $1000.

With Treasures as the 2018 theme for the three day Art Expo to be held from August 24-26 at the Ocean Shores Public School, President Richard Heazlewood-Ross (above) praised the work of the Youth Service, for valuing supporting and advocating for young people.

"Youth are our treasures for in them lies the power of rebellion and the hope for positive social evolution. We hope this donation will foster their ongoing creativity, action and vision,” he said.
