This post is the last for 2017, and haven’t we had a feast of information throughout the year!
It also announces our last meeting for 2017 and I do hope that you have found that the variety of speakers and topics has inspired you to learn more about this historic peninsula which is a marvellous mix of old and new.
You will have already learned about our need to change of the date and time of our November meeting to Saturday 18th at 10am . A morning meeting will be a new experience for all of us and I do apologise if this change makes it difficult for you to attend.There have been many elections with a polling booth at the Uniting Church since we started meeting there, and we have been fortunate that up until now, they have not coincided with our meeting day.
This time, it is our turn to be a little inconvenienced, but we won’t let that dampen our enthusiasm for hearing about the disasters of 1864. e are beginning to plan our speakers for 2018, and just to entice you to book up the fourth Saturday in February (24th), we will have Wal Bishop speaking about his family’s jewellery business which recently celebrated 100 years.
When you enter that in your diary, why not also mark the fourth Saturday of every month to be sure you don’t miss a meeting.
To those readers who are unable attend next month’s meeting, I will take this opportunity to thank you for your support during 2017, and to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
