BUSINESS ARISING:
Fruits Of Angaston Book – Some more information from Bruce Doecke still to be sourced and then it can be printed. The grant application was not successful. President (Dr. W. Gransbury) had stated that he felt that not more than $1,000 be used by the society to cover the printing cost. The meeting felt that up to $3,000 of the society’s money could be used as the A&PHS was in a reasonably sound financial condition. Some of the members are willing to become guarantors. It was also felt that a reasonable amount of the cost would be recovered on the book launch day and in the weeks leading up to the paying of the printing account .
Holmes Wagon, Gun and St. Michael’s Sword – Dean was negotiating with the council and all seems to be in hand. The Blacksmith helpers from Adelaide are going to attempt to replace the sword. May need a team of helpers in early February regarding the wagon repairing.
