Hello Everyone, 

Our AGM has come and gone.   The constitution of our Society states that a President cannot hold that position for more than three successive years.   They can in the future accept the position again after a break.   So this year we said farwell to  President Angela Syme who had completed her three year term.  Thank you Angela for a job well done.

Our new President is Judith Kershaw who has held that role before and  was our outgoing Secretary.   Our new Secretary is Richard Patterson, a relative newcomer to the society but he has a real passion for history so I'm sure he will do a great job.  Thank you too, to all the committee members who willingly put up their hand.   Here's to a great 2017 for Port Fairy Historical Society.

Our curators are working on a new display about balls, the dancing kind!   Balls were such a big part of life back until around the 1960s.    Deb Balls continue today although they are not as common as they once were.    We look forward to seeing how they bring this new exhibition to life.   I'll post some images on our facebook page when it is ready.

Hope to see you in Port Fairy soon.
