We’ve decluttered and started packing to move in two weeks.
I wrote the Avenel Activities 1984-1991, Seymour Social Scene, 1990-2001 and for Nagambie since 2001 to now for local papers. Dabbling in each town’s events when I can still.
Now what to do with my clippings of scribblings? Well!. The Seymour Historical Museum will take my 10 years of scrapbooks, and Nagambie Historical museum will take the 16 years I’ve done here so far.
So my work is not wasted, and historically all the hatches, matches, dispatches and all sorts of news will be kept for posterity. Now to start on my 1000’s of photos.
