From the Foreword by the then President Dr. Robyn Taylor:
This booklet has been compiled to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the original Toodyay Society (Incorporated) established 1980, and its subsequent manifestation in 1994 as the Toodyay Historical Society (Incorporated). The membership of any group changes and renews itself but as time marches on we are in danger of losing the memory of our past members and what they achieved. As current members of the Toodyay Historical Society we thought it was timely to capture our own special history from its origins up to the present day. ….
Compiling the information for this booklet has been a huge task willingly undertaken by our current Secretary Beth Frayne. Beth has burnt much midnight oil trawling through the Minute Books and records to discover the activities of past members and reveal the highlights for each year. Jenny Edgecombe our Archivist and Librarian completed the text, selected and prepared photographs and pulled the whole lot together into a publishable format. The Society is greatly indebted to both for their magnificent effort.
We have produced this booklet in advance of the Society’s 30th anniversary in 2010 so that over the next couple of years corrections and additions can be made in time for a bumper 30th birthday publication. Happy reading!
