Welcome to the President’s June Report.
We now have a website. Visit www.gcmuseum.com.au and take a look. It will continue to be added to and members can sign up.
Have your say. We have not set on a final name for the Museum. What do you think of “Gold Coast Historical Museum” or “Gold Coast History Museum”?
The Gold Coast Paranormal Projects group surveyed the cemetery area and museum grounds for extra-normal activity last week, the evening was quite entertaining.
Does anyone know anything about an old anchor that was removed from Harpers wharf many years ago? Or where the bell from the Scottish Prince is?
The Committee visited The Southport School archives department for a tour of the cable station building which is being relocated (still on site) and were given a “Galvanometer,” part of cable station equipment.
Rob Molhoek MP visited us for morning tea and planted a tree (Leptospermum scoparium).
There is a range of old bottles and jars for sale which are surplus to the Museum’s requirements.
As some of the volunteers have been travelling overseas it has given the remaining volunteers extra rosters on Sundays. If you feel like a leisurely day at the museum and to catch up with what is new join the Sunday roster.
Visitors for the month - 87. Volunteers worked 397 hours this month.
Garden and maintenance:
Lawns are looking great after rain and fertilisation.
Trees and shrubs think it is spring putting on growth and flowers after the hot dry summer.
We have 5 bunches of bananas which will soon be ready for harvesting.
Calendar date to remember: AGM Sunday 8th September. Renew your membership now.
Please support our major sponsors: Gold Coast Private Hospital, Griffith University,
Radio Station 94.1FM and Coombabah Pharmacy.
