Planning Meeting Saturday 16th January has had to be postponed.

Notice to all Members: Our Planning Meeting scheduled for Saturday 16th January in the Galleria outside the Museum to discuss planning your society meetings and events for 2021 has had to be postponed to a date to be fixed due to Covid-19 restrictions being reintroduced in the Greater Sydney Area.

We would still like to hear your ideas you may have to help us move forward and look at planning for the coming year so there will be Committee members at the Camden Museum from 1-4pm on Saturday so come in and say hello. The more input we get from our members, the better we can construct 2021 to deliver what you want.
