From the: Foreword (2020)
“Forty years is a significant milestone. That this anniversary occurs in a year of world upheaval due to the particularly virulent disease COVID-19, reminds us all that change is inevitable and that the value of maintaining records and preserving contemporary information for future consideration is paramount. ….
This is now an interesting time to look forward to the next 40 years and what they may hold. I can guarantee that anyone looking back on the last 40 years will be able to glean a substantial amount of information on Toodyay’s rich history due to the hard work and dedication of the Toodyay Historical Society. May it always continue to shine a light on Toodyay history for future generations.
Linda Rooney, President, Toodyay Historical Society (Incorporated)”
