Wrapping up the society’s jubilee year

2018 AGM and the new committee

It was decided at the 2018 AGM that the new committee would comprise 8 members, including those with executive roles. All positions are now filled. The President Ian Johnson thanked everyone – committee members and volunteers – who contribute untold time and energy to keep the society in good shape.

With the festive season fast approaching, our attention now turns to the publicising our wares via email and facebook. All stock of Angliss’ Arcadia: A short history of west Yarraville is held at Ercildoune. Authors Dr Emma Curtin and Tony Kelleher are to be congratulated on a highly engaging presentation at the Yarraville Library book launch.
