Exhibitions

The exhibitions are a joint project of the Model Makers and Collectors Association Inc. and the Lions Club of Glenorchy (City) Inc. The proceeds from our Exhibitions always go to one of the Lions Club chosen charities. Some of the past recipients have been the Epilepsy Foundation, the Whittle Ward, CanTeen, the Deaf Institute, the Paediatrics Ward at the Royal Hobart Hospital, and the Heart Foundation Tasmania. The Lions Club continues to be our patron body and assists us in many ways. In return we continue to raise funds for their charities.
