Fletcher Writing competition, and opening Selected Spaces: settling the Ginninderra district, HAGSOC’s joint exhibition with the Hall School Museum and Heritage Centre.Two short presentations will allow members to revisit some of HAGSOC’s “Minty Moments – Memorable events from our 55 years” as well as exploring early settlement in the Ginninderra region with one of the descendants of the original settlers.
The afternoon will conclude with afternoon tea, and of course, birthday cake.
