To our valued members, an invitation to an afternoon tea, with guest speaker Helen Thompson as a big bonus.
Helen and her husband Stephen have a passion for military history, in particular the stories of the 263 men who took part in the Coo-ee March from Gilgandra to Sydney in 1915. They actually met when Stephen was taking part in the first re-enactment of the march in 1987, and as they say, things went from there.
Helen is a technical services cataloguer at the Macquarie Regional Library and we are extremely fortunate to be able to have her address our afternoon tea, with her story of the Coo-ee march. It seems fortuitous also, that this year’s re-enactment of the Coo-ee March will be passing through the Dubbo area from the 18th to 21st October, with a street parade through Dubbo on the 20th October.
Don’t miss out on this chance for a lovely afternoon tea and an extremely interesting address on history relating to our area.
When: 2pm, Monday, 21st September 2015
Where: Family History Rooms, Cultural Precinct, Cnr. Gipps & Wingewarra Street, Dubbo.
RSVP: by 15th September to Kathy Furney.
