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’.
25th Anniversary Celebrations UPDATE
Plans for the dinner are well in hand. Please RSVP by
The 25th Anniversary Raffle will be drawn at the party, and there will be a lucky door prize, so keep your ‘ticket’ as this has your lucky number on. Those people who paid before the tickets were ready, you can either collect your tickets from the office or they will be mailed to you shortly.
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? (BBC2 English Programme)
If you want to
see 3 episodes of this very interesting family history programme, please
enquire at the office.
Tickets ($1.00 each) are continually on sale for monthly raffles….you’ve got to be in it, to win it…..If you look in the library, you will see that over the last 6 months or so, that the raffles have been run, an enormous amount of resources* has been purchased with the proceeds of the raffles.
*The main criteria used for the selection of items to be purchased with raffle proceeds, is value for money. Each month, we try to get resources from a different State of Australia. We try to select items that will be of use to a lot of our members, not just one member. We would like to get more overseas resources, BUT, we cannot find any that are good value for the money. SO, if you come across a good resource, let someone in the office know….we need the name of the item, cost, and where to purchase it. All items selected for purchase, are listed and passed at the Monthly Meetings before purchase is made. If you don’t like the items selected, say so! If you would prefer something else be purchased…say so!
The September Monthly Raffle is a beauty – 1st prize is the shaving mirror with drawer, hand made and donated by Jack Piper. Tickets are $1.00 each….there are 2nd and 3rd prizes as well….
Scribble Pads for sale – 50c each – very handy for all those notes
We have produced a number of these booklets, as a fund raiser, to help you ‘keep track of your families’ while doing your family tree research……Available from the Office
PLEASE REMEMBER our 25th Anniversary Hindsight – get your stories in NOW!
Let’s make this a really special edition of our magazine….thank you to the members who have already submitted their stories and photos….email me at email@example.com
