Change to speaker

BREAKING NEWS!

Due to unforeseen circumstances our previously advertised speaker for tomorrow’s Monthly General Meeting (Jan Nargar from Abbey Museum) is unable to attend.

We are delighted to announce that local businesswoman, Jenise Horsman, has agreed to step in at short notice. We’re very grateful to Jenise and hope that Jan will be able to join us again at some point in the future.

November meeting tomorrow!

Tomorrow’s monthly members meeting promises to be a very interesting one. Guest speaker, Don Watson, will be talking about architects who have designed buildings in Redcliffe, many of which are still standing.

More details here.

Vale Ray Frawley

The passing last Friday 11 August of Raymond James Frawley brought to an end the life of one of life’s gentlemen.

Ray had a distinguished career with one of the highlights being serving as the Mayor of Redcliffe City Council for many years.

There will be much written about him this week as he was one of Redcliffe leading citizens so I will leave the details of his life to his family.

Ray was a Patron of History Redcliffe for many years. The calibre of the man can be judged by the message he sent to History Redcliffe when he could not attend our fiftieth birthday celebrations at the Redcliffe Leagues Club. An extract from this message is below.

It has been a great honour to hold the position of Patron of this Society for such a long time
and having shared this role with some amazing people over the years. I publicly acknowledge
and thank them for their support.

Our deepest sympathy goes to his family and friends.

Well done Raymond James Frawley. You certainly have earnt the right to rest in peace.

–Errol Deller, History Redcliffe President
