Recently I attended the official opening of the Glen Eira Historical Society's new impressive premises at 965 Glenhuntly Rd South Caulfield. (see related prev posting)
It was great to see such a good attendance at this event that has been a long time coming .
The new premises is open to the public and always welcoming of new volunteers to assist in the large volume of work being done in chronocling this municipality's rich past.
The director Mr John O'Callaghan spoke of the trials and tribulations of getting to this stage- including being flooded out several days after moving in! He also acknowledged the wonderful work and efforts of past and present members.
With the recent council decision to fund a full-time research officer and assistant the future looks assured for the society and its valuable work.
