Jeanette B. informs me that the Black Forest Primary School will be holding an open day to commemorate their 90th anniversary on Saturday, 31st October 2009 from 11am.

Classrooms will be open, and plenty to see and do, so if you went to Primary School there as Jeanette did, why not drop by and catch up with faces and names from your past.

They have a website running on this subject at present – might be worth a look at, since by my calendar the 31st is tomorrow not Sunday??? The website is at


Celtica Festival
Date: 5-6 December 2009
Time: 12:00 noon – 7:00pm
Venue: Pt Adelaide Waterfront at the end of Mundy Street, Port Adelaide
The event celebrates the Celtic traditions of Europe and the Bristish Isles through music, art, literature, craft, language and cuisine. Plenty to do, see and hear.

A seminar entitled Ships Ahoy!! will be held at the Adelaide Office of the National Archives of Australia at 78 Angas Street, Adelaide on Tuesday November 10th 2009 between 10:00am and 11:00am – and it is FREE to all, but you must book – phone 8409 8400 or email

The aim of this seminar is to teach attendees how to navigate through the wide variety of maritime records that are held by the National Archives. It should be well worth giving up the hour to attend – especially to those who are interested in this subject.

The Annual General Meeting of the Fleurieu Peninsula Family History Group will be held on Saturday November 21st 2009 at the Trinity Uniting Church Hall, William Road, Christies Beach commencing with a luncheon at 12:00 noon. The meeting proper will begin at 1:30pm, and will include elections for the positions of Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Members will be notified by email of the nominations once all have been received. Nominations for the above positions should reach the Vice-President by close of business on 7th November. Voting is open to all financial members of the group. Proxy votes will only be accepted via the appropriate form, duly completed and signed, and which are delivered to the Returning Officer prior to the commencement of the elections.  Members attending the luncheon are requested to bring either a sweet or savory plate.

Several of the Committee and members manned our stall at the Meadows Country Fair yesterday (18th October) on what proved to be an absolutely lovely sunny Spring day. We were visited by a steady stream of traffic, having been placed between the Meadows Primary School Reunion marquee and a rather interesting stall selling the most amazingly crafted metal animals and other gadgets. There was quite a packed program of events during the day, with plenty to see and do – and delicious food at every turn. The organisers of the event – which this year coincided with the 150th Anniversary Celebrations at Meadows – can be justifiably proud of their efforts in putting on such a great day. Well done Meadows!! And well done to our folk who manned the stall too – especially Di who was there from go to whoa!!
