The July meeting of Narooma Historical Society will explore one of the themes for the society’s First World War exhibition in November - the two Conscription plebiscites.

The two-week exhibition will commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War and the declaration of peace.

The project is funded by a Saluting their Service grant from the Australian Government.

Society member Dr Eleanor Robin has done extensive research on the subject, which she will talk about at the meeting.

The society meets on Sunday, July 15, in the School of Arts Studios (behind the BP) at 2pm.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Afternoon tea will be provided.

Narooma Vinnies

We have a great community don’t we? After our appeal for winter clothing we have had a steady flow of donations which have been put straight into the shop. They are of good quality and are available in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes. Looking for a greeting card? Please remember Vinnies when you have that special occasion and want an attractive, pretty or cute card.

Blue Water Ball

Marine Rescue Narooma has stepped up to host this year's charity Blue Water Ball at the Narooma Golf Club on July 28.

Two years ago, Narooma RSL sub-branch hosted its first Red Poppy Ball for Homes for Heroes and this time Marine Rescue is stepping up to the plate. The Narooma Unit hopes to upgrade it radio room, which is manned 24/7 by volunteers controlling incidents and logging hundreds of recreational boaters and covering their voyages. They also need to repair the Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) device on NA30, the Unit’s marine rescue vessel, which is also crewed by trained volunteers, so proceeds from the Blue Water Ball will be put to good use.

Additionally, in a nod to the RSL, the unit will also make a one-off donation to an Australian War Animal Memorial Organisation, the Australian K9 Care Program, a not-for-profit organisation caring for retired military working dogs to their end of life, as ex-military dogs do not receive a pension or care like other two legged veterans do.  

Join a night of live music laughter and much needed fundraising for two very worthy causes.
