The Gerringong & District Historical Society has a new temporary home at the RSL Memorial Hall on the corner of Fern and Belinda Streets.
The Society’s President Helen McDermott says, “We had found ourselves homeless whilst the Museum and Library building project is in progress, and members are most grateful Gerringong RSL has extended a hand of welcome to their lovely premises so we can continue our work.”
The President of the Gerringong RSL, Glenn Kolomeitz, says they are happy to help, “The Sub-Branch has been a big part of Gerringong’s history, both in bricks and mortar and in flesh and blood, so that the nexus with the Historical Society is an obvious solution.”
The Society’s meetings will be held at the Hall at 1pm on the fourth Saturday of the month until further notice. At the first meeting on 24 February, Tony Butz will be giving his third talk on NSW Governors. This one will focus on Governors King and Bligh, and how their decisions influenced exploration and settlement of this area.
There will be a small charge for visitors, who are welcome to stay for afternoon tea. This will be followed by a general meeting for GDHS members.
