February 14 Meeting – Trevor Walley: Aboriginal Bush Tucker + AGM
The first meeting for 2019 will be held on Thursday February 14, with former employee of the Department of Parks and Wildlife Trevor Walley talking about Aboriginal bush tucker.
Trevor started his government employment in the 1970s with the then Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, moving on to work for the Department of Conservation and Land Manager and finally with Parks and Wildlife prior to retirement. He is now heavily involved in Aboriginal education, working with many Aboriginal groups and individuals around the state.
He will be talking about some of the food and other resources that Aboriginal people have used over the millennia.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm in the Senior Citizens Centre, 22 Peel Terrace, Busselton.
All Club activities are free to attend open to the public but a gold coin donation is requested to cover the cost of meeting venue hire and advertising.
The meeting will conclude with the Club’s AGM at which two important activities must take place.
The first is the approval of a new constitution as required by the state government.
The second is the annual election of office bearers, with Graham Edwards standing down as vice-president and Sue Palmer as newsletter editor. Both people have contributed to the Club’s operations for many years and their volunteer work has been greatly appreciated.
