I hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas break and is feeling refreshed and ready to resume research.
There is not a lot to report since our December break up, which was enjoyed by all who attended.
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind all members that lockers are available for the security of their personal effects as well as protection of the Club’s resources.
No bags are permitted in the resource areas. The keys for the lockers are available from the office, at no cost.
New year, new ideas needed. What would you like the Club to try to organize? e.g. Guest speakers (is there a particular subject you would like to see covered?); new resources; bus trips or anything else that may benefit our members. Remember, it is your Club and the Committee needs input for the Club to grow and succeed.
Happy researching, David
Don’t forget the Help Wanted Section in the Hindsight…..Your name/details will not be printed in the magazine, your question will be allocated a number and a listing kept in the office, of who submitted which question. Any replies will be via CFHRG email address or PO Box. Your questions can be left at the office or can be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com …thank you, Elaine (Our magazine now goes to the Nundah & District Historical Society and Logan District Soc.)
We are in need of more members to volunteer for ‘duty’. It is not hard – it is just a case of being there to assist new members and visitors. Ideally we would like to have two duty persons per session. At the moment, most days, we have just one person ‘on duty’. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to help out with library duty on a regular basis or on a ‘needs be’ basis.
