SEIFRIED FAMILY WINEMAKERS - THANK YOU TO OUR CALENDAR SPONSOR FOR MARCH 2020

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.
