We have applied for some grants that have been successful, so we can go ahead purchasing equipment to improve our Mosaic System for recording and cataloguing the precious museum collection. The process to digitize the photo collection has started and 500 photos were sent to Canberra recently. Jason will begin enhancing them to improve the quality.
Our street stalls this year are on Saturday May 28 and Friday November 11, so put them on your calendar. If you could help us out, we would very much appreciate it. We also collect cans and bottles for Earn and Return and would pick up if you ring the Museum. If you are interested in helping the Museum in any way, you would be more than welcome.
