Events in 2014


Central Coast Family History Society Inc - 1 March 2014

Seniors’ Week – Heritage Focus

Seniors week this year will be celebrated on the morning of March 1. We plan to hold a special day for members and local seniors.

The question is asked “if you were preparing a Heritage Memory Box what would you put in it? What treasures would you like to see set aside in your memory? What treasures do you have from your ancestors to add to your Heritage Memory Box?” The format is still in the early planning stage. Although we will be encouraging members and visitors to bring along treasures they think could be included in such a Heritage Memory Box. Some perhaps could be encouraged to give a short description on their items in the afternoon. If planning to bring along a treasure please type out its provenance to display with your items. Displays to be set up in the Hall before 10.45 am our doors will open at 11 am.

Normal Members’ Meeting will be held at 1 pm – followed by mini talks on heritage treasures - Come along and meet our Mayor “the Bonnie Scot” Lawrie McKinna.

Part 2 of Seniors Week OPEN DAY – 19 March 2013 - our Research Centre at 8 Russell Drysdale Street, East Gosford will be open to visitors from 10 am til 2 pm.

All day morning tea
