WISE'S PICTURE FRAMING: THANK YOU TO OUR CALENDAR SPONSOR FOR OCTOBER 2020

We are very grateful to the 12 sponsors who helped fund the SeniorNet Nelson 2020 Calendar published by our Digital Imagery Group (DIG). The calendar shows off the attractions of the beautiful Nelson/Tasman Region in images all taken by DIG members. Each sponsor generously funded one month of the calendar and the quick sale of all the calendars made this endeavour a very successful fundraiser. We plan to highlight the "sponsor for the month" each month throughout the year to say thank you. To learn more about ALL THE SPONSORS CLICK/TAP THE IMAGE.
