October Meeting – A 50th Anniversary Panel of EDHS Members

Eltham District Historical Society Meeting

Wednesday, 11th October at 8pm

Eltham Senior Citizens’ Centre, Library Place, Eltham

Eltham Festival Parade, 11 November 1989; Main Road near the corner with Arthur Street. Society President, Sue Law, and Junior Vice-President Doug Orford carry the Society Banner leading the parade float. The Shire of Eltham Historical Society’s parade float featured a gold mining theme – “The Eltham Goldrush” (From the collection of Eltham District Historical Society.)

As this meeting is close to the 50th anniversary of the first meeting of the Shire of Eltham Historical Society, on 24th October 1967, we will appropriately look back on our own history. This will include a panel of members who will highlight some of our experiences and achievements along the way.

As a special 50th anniversary treat we will have the opportunity to view, for the first time, a video reflecting on the first 50 years of our Society. This video, produced by Gerald Ashcroft from www.storiestobetold.com.au, is based around interviews with Russell Yeoman and Doug Orford about their recollections. Gerald has generously donated his expertise and time to provide this video as a valued gift to EDHS on the occasion of our 50th Anniversary.

As at all of our meetings, new members and visitors are most welcome.
