Hello Everyone, 

The busy season is upon us and it's a fast track until Christmas Day.   I hope you have your cake made by now.    The Society members will be meeting for lunch  on Tuesday December 11 for their annual end of year get-together.  Once again we will be up at Charlie's on East overlooking Port Fairy Bay.

Last week we had a visit from the Museums Accreditation program people.    It's hard to believe ir's 20 years since we first gained our accreditation.   We think we've dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's so here's hoping for a good result. 

Work is powering ahead on the new archive storage facility in our "backyard".   It will be a wonderful asset for  our museum when completed, hopefully in the new year.   I'll post up some pictures when it is finished.   

Our current exhibition  "Icons of Port Fairy" which tells the story, through photographs and objects, of people who were from Port Fairy and who have made an impact in their chosen field in the wider world is proving very popular. The exhibition opened on 22 September and will run through until 30 January 2019.  Normal entry costs  which are adults $5, teenagers 12-18 $1, and under 12 free, will apply.  There will also be a small booklet available at a cost of $5.   

On behalf of the comittee I wish all our members and friends a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.   

 Regards to all,
