NOTES FROM MANAGEMENT
As this is my first report since the AGM, I must congratulate Elaine on her efforts during my absence. Very well done.
We have had to look at ways to compensate for excessive expenditure. There have been only three months of the past year in which income exceeds expenditure. The club cannot continue to operate under these conditions.
It is hoped that the general membership will support your committee in their efforts to correct this problem.
another note, Lawrie Strange, the speaker from the
The old bathroom renovation is proceeding with the help of Chris Beeston and a few other people. It will make a great difference when the administration is separate from the computer room.
Make a point of coming along to check out the new additions to the library. We are open on Friday mornings now.
We are still looking for more assistants to help man the office. Put your name in, it can be fun.

BOOK REVIEWS by Joanne Beeston (Librarian)
Two books that were purchased from Maryborough Family History Group are the publications, Mine Host of Maryborough and District – 2 volumes of licensed publicans 1860-1924 and 1924-1970.
They not only give you the names of who owned what pub, but if the licence was lost, withdrawn due to death, date of death, fire or pub name change, or surname change, and if the husband’s wife or siblings took over. Some names have a * next to them for further information on that family by contacting Maryborough Dist. Family History Soc. These books are fascinating to read, and that most were owned by Irishmen, one thinks, did they really need all those pubs. Found in the Qld section Codes: REF QLD MAR-1 & REF QLD MAR-2

the weekend of the 30th & 31st of July, the same
ladies, with husbands Chris, Jeff, Geoffrey and Danny, visited Maryborough for
some research at the Maryborough Heritage Centre. Minor successes were had by
Jane, Joanne and Glenys. In the morning, we toured the Bond Store and the
Customs House, followed by the best meal at the Royal Hotel, then research at the
Heritage Centre (some researched, and some walked off the lunch). Then back to
the motel for a quick rest, then off on the Ghost Tour. We were collected near
our digs, by bus, then went to Rose Hill, for pumpkin soup; back on the bus for
a tour of the cemetery, by torch light; on the bus again, for main meal at the
Engineers Arms Hotel, followed by a walk by lantern light, through the streets
and back alleys of Maryborough, before boarding the bus again, at Queens Park,
for dessert and homemade chocolates at Mavis Bank. Then after an extremely
enjoyable evening, we were dropped back off at the motel, where we all promptly
retired for the night, and slept soundly till morning. Sunday we were off to
the flea markets and then we all went our separate ways…some back to the
Cemetery, some to the
