Notes from the ‘Stuff you need to know 2’ seminar July 2018

Our ‘Stuff you need to know’ seminar was Sunday, July 29 2018 at the Narre Warren Mechanics’ Institute Hall, 59 Webb Street.

Here are some notes from the day. Unfortunately, the session on Community Banking did not go ahead as the guest speaker could not make it, due to unexpected circumstances.

Digitisation: Turning History into Pixels presented by Murray Adams, Mornington Peninsula Shire Local History Digitisation Officer.

  1. Hi Heather,
    I was disappointed to see that my daughter’s baby shower and your seminar were on the same day. The baby shower won.

    I have printed off the notes from the website for our members to read and want to say thanks, I found them very interesting.

    Just a note, we are having a Morning Coffee on 9th August at 10.15am about the Wannangatta Murders – about Jim Barclay who was a Hastings Man – 100 years ago and is an unsolved murder.
