Our Frank Hurren Memorial Presentation this year by Dr. Tony Stimson will focus on the controversial topic of Breaker Morant’s omission from the memorial and the ongoing role of war memorials in the community.
We are delighted to invite you all to an unexpected addition to our Event Program for 2023.
This biography has been researched and published by members of the well-known Murrell family in memory of their late uncle, Bill Murrell a former resident of the Adelaide Hills and a significant mentor and collector of the works by emerging artists in the Adelaide Hills.
The MLDHS has worked closely with Thomas Murrell as he followed a similar commitment to “uncover, preserve and publish the histories of the Mount Lofty Districts”. We have enjoyed and benefited from our involvement in this project and appreciate the opportunity to support the launching of this fascinating work.
We hope to see you at the launch. The invitation is attached below.
Our special History Month Event for 2023 gives an insight into the trains and railways that have been part of our lives and focusses on the transformations that the coming of the Railway made to life in the Hills and beyond.
This programme supersedes the previous mailout and includes some alterations. As always, events beyond our control may result in further changes. Please watch for future posts on this website for the latest information about coming events.
This year’s Annual General Meeting will include a presentation by Chris Chardon about “Footy in the Hills”. Chris is well qualified to speak on this subject and will bring to light the results of his knowledge and research.
Bookings are essential; please RSVP as indicated on the flyer below.
