This Day in History: 2013-07-17

The Toodyay Historical Society commenced a new style monthly meeting, incorporating a Feature Speaker, in the hope of attracting more members to these evening meetings on the third Wednesday of the month held in Donegan’s Cottage in the Toodyay Showgrounds. The first speaker was the THS Committee member and newsletter Editor Dr. Robyn Taylor on the Lotterywest funded ‘2009 Toodyay Bushfire Project’, which involved ‘documenting’ the bushfire and recovery process by way of oral history interviews and gathering a wide range of material (documents, photographs, CDs etc). Channel 10 news footage was featured.
