Vol. 1 No. 3........................................................................................................................December 1998

Since our last 'Tribute" we have entered the St.Marys Spring Festival Parade. Congratulations must go to all members who took part in the parade and to those who were involved in the preparation of the float. We are particularly grateful to Robert Adams, who supplied the truck and many great ideas, and to Ken Adams who supplied the equipment and 'old wares' that made the winning float

Congratulations to Marion McLeod and her team for the excellent design and manufacture of costumes for the parade.

The pressure is on now to do as well next year.

The Society has been involved in several tours of St.Marys in recent months, including one with the South Creek Catchment Management Committee and one with the Historic Houses Trust.

Our next event will be a Bus Tour around St.Marys for our members on Saturday, 23rd. January.
