MAX the wonder dog
2002 saw a new addition to out team, his name is MAX.
Max was the much loved pet of Mr Bill Giles.
When Max passed away Bill had a taxidermist preserve him and for the last few years Max continued working as a very effective watch dog in the back seat of Bill's car.
Unfortunately ill health saw Bill move into aged hostel accommodation and there was no place for Max so he has been given to us to care for.
Sadly Bill has since passed away but Max is happy in his new home, the children who visit our Museum absolutely love him.
Max is seen below with his new friend Stan.


The opening of the out door display, and presentation of Certificates of Appreciation, by Councillor Russell Bate on November 8th 2003 was the culmination of over two years hard work.

In 16 years the society has come a long way, it seems like yesterday when we worked from the Secretarys lounge room with little more than a list of names from the headstones at the cemetery.

We are fortunate to be in a very community minded town, this has seen in the assistance received from local volunteers in erecting the new outdoor display shed and additional fencing.
