LRRSA 50th Anniversary

gould_scott <sncs@...>

Hi All,

On Thursday 10th Feb. the regular Melbourne entertainment meeting featured a slide presentation of early tours and events dating pack to the foundation of the society. The hon. secretary, Phil Rickard had recently rediscovered minutes from the earliest days, and read some interesting entries including one meeting which began during school lunch time, and was suspended until the school day was completed.

The 30 or so people present then watched on as society founder Frank Stamford cut into a very tasty cake featuring a coloured print of "Little Yarra".

This should be the start of a great year for the society, with more activities and at least one publication planned to commemorate the milestone. I have put some photos in a file "LRRSA 50th anniversary album" in the photos section. Please feel free to add to this folder during the year as events take place.
