Raema McMillan (86), who doubles as a Masters athletics champion in discus, javelin and hammer, is returning to family in Hawkesbury, NSW.

The Scarborough resident will have four oil paintings in the exhibition at the Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club, two pertinent to the Trigg area.

‘One is looking out south through the surf club hall window and the other one is of light, the sun going down over Triggs, over the rocks,’ she said.

After 35 years with the club, she said it would be sad to leave. ‘I have some very good friends, good memories, it’s a good club,’ she said.

The exhibition opens on Friday, September 20, at 7pm, and runs on Saturday and Sunday, September 21 and 22 from 9.30am to 5pm.
