President's Report Hello everyone, this is an update on what is happening in the next few months.
- 1. 2015 State Conference WAGS Affiliated History Societies, 4th September. This year this conference is being held Australind and we are invited to attend. Leon Daly and myself will be attending as delegates and we are also permitted to take two observers. This is a day where we catch up on what has been happening during the past year in the other Societies around the state. It is also a time to connect with other people with similar interests. If you are interested in attending please let me know, transport will be provided on the day.
- 2. Rockingham Seniors and Carers Expo 2015, 4th November. We will be having a stall again at this Expo which is being held in the Mike Barnett Sports Complex. I will be preparing a list for the next meeting for you to volunteer some of your time on the day to man the stall. Please give this your consideration.
- 3. National Institute for Genealogical Studies. We have been provided a free certificate for an on line course valued at $79.
- They provide some 200 courses on line for budding genealogists. This will be raffled off at our next meeting.
- 4. Rockingham City Council. We have been provided with a grant of $5,720 towards the cost of website subscriptions and other expenses. We thank the City for this and I will be writing to them and thanking them on your behalf.
- 5. We have applied to hold a sausage sizzle at Bunnings in Rockingham in February 2016. We will need some help with this from members, more on this later in the year.
