Since our last Annual Meeting we have been involved in the following activities:
- MCTC: New Directions.
the art of directing a theatrical performance. This was the first performance without music for MCTC for a long time and was highly successful.
- Cobb & Co Stables interpretive sign was put in place.
- Screen printing Workshop with Helen Wakefield was so successful the group is looking forward to another session to further their skills.
- Remembrance Day commemoration at the memorial site.
‘As we stood remembering at the commemorative ceremony held at Moonambel's Memorial last Sunday, it seemed to me to really capture the spirit we all hold deep within our hearts. I am one of many who were thinking deeply of a father, grandfather, great uncle, great aunty, brothers and sisters
who served way back.’
- An Exhibition without a Title Easter art show & sale.
Wood carving, water colours, acrylics, oils, pastels, pencil, mosaic tiles, photography, linocutting, printing, torn tissue collage, glass and even rocks. The people’s choice winner was the possum carved by our local wood carver Barry Fox.
- Moonambel Historical Police Precinct Information Panels
- The cover of the Moonambel Watch House Charge Book 1883 – 1914.
- The information of the 53 people held over that long period.
- Headings including the date, name, age, country of origin, their calling, charge and the offence along with remarks.
- Silhouette images on the original 'mural'
- Floor plans of the associated buildings.
- An excerpt from the original book.
- MCTC: Babes in the Wood pantomime
Our website mahg.org.au keeps our activities documented for all to see.
Market stalls, barbecue and Devonshire teas continue to be a drawcard when we have events staged at the Moonambel Recreation Reserve.
Projects on the go...
- The Moonambel Lockup project at the Common. Still on the books but slowly coming together. The next step is the lockup renovation including the 3 figures being replaced.
- Art workshops in varied media.
- Installing historic information plaques around the township.
‘Once again our small team of dedicated workers make our projects work. The creative members need the level headed art & history lovers to make these things happen and vice versa. We have built up a wonderful reputation in the Pyrenees district basically due to our respect of our team and supporters. Well done all.
Our future projects, whatever they may be, are almost guaranteed success due to this dedication and wonderful harmonious community team spirit. I thank you all.’
