The last meeting of the Society was in March when Elini Coursivanos from the South Gippsland Shire spoke to members. Elini is employed by the Shire to update a heritage study which was done in 2004. It was a great experience for members to hear from such an engaging speaker who is so enthusiastic about her area of study.
Six months with no meetings, but there are people contacting the Society to find out about our/their history, and the history of their families.
- Frederick Walter Henry Schulz operated the news agency business in Korumburra in the late twenties, into the nineteen forties. He left when he went to serve in WW2 in New Guinea. There might be people who remember the Schulz name in Korumburra.
- Another enquiry has come relating to J.C. Andrews who had a cordial business in Korumburra. That’s just one more name from our past.
We cannot forecast when we might be able to meet again, we need just in the present time to stay apart to stay together as the advertising goes.
