History Queensland's six monthly meeting

Thank you to the Peachester History Committee who hosted the 6-monthly meeting on Saturday 20 November 2021. Niles Elvery, Senior Archivist at Queensland State Archives, gave an interesting presentation on the history of the Peachester School. After the business of the meeting, Helen Page gave an interesting talk about the Peachester area from the early days to now, and that was followed by a tour of the amazing Heritage Centre the group has created full of a wide variety of memorabilia from the area. It was an enjoyable day for all who attended.
