BIG DAY OUT for some of the male members of our Branch as they visited the Museum where the NASA Exhibit is currently on display.  Highly recommended.  Exhibition runs from 15 March to 9 October.

NASA – A Human Adventure is the most comprehensive and extensive touring space flight exhibition in the world. Featuring an extraordinary collection of more than 250 historically significant artefacts from the United States and Soviet Union era space programs. The objects on display include original space flown objects, high fidelity replicas and scale models.


June Branch Meeting

 

UNDER THE LINO”

Our June meeting  was very well attended (would you believe 111 people) to hear our guest speaker Caylie Jeffrey, and no wonder, she was brilliant.  Caylie has written a book called “Under the Lino”.  Her talk was very intriguing especially her journey to writing the book as it had many connections to Brisbane’s past. We were so lucky to have an author like Caylie address our members.


Glenn Innes Trip 2nd to 5th June 2019

 

Travellers are still talking about our 4 day 3 night away trip in May.  One of the many highlights  was enjoying the wonderful sounds of the bagpipes at the Celtic Festival in Glen Innes. We stayed in Tenterfield and visited the Tenterfield Railway Museum run by a band of enthusiastic volunteers.  Next time you are in Tenterfield take the time to visit the Museum.  We visited an Alpaca Farm at Wallangarra where we met some very cute little baby alpacas.
