General meeting and resource room

July 20 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


This months general meeting has a meeting fee of $2 per person for members or $5 per person for visitors, which includes afternoon tea. For those members that have paid the years meeting fees with their years membership, there’s nothing more to pay.

The Resource Room will be open from 12noon for borrowing books. If you would like to use a computer before the meeting begins it will need to be booked.

The meeting time is 1:15pm and the talk is by Anthea Taylor on ‘A Beautiful Little Valley’: Colonel William Light and the Rapid. Rapid Bay and its surrounding valleys enchanted the South Australian Colonisation Commissioners’ appointed surveyor-general, Colonel William Light. He established a settlement there in September 1836, and named it for his ship, Rapid. This presentation follows Light’s voyage to the new colony, and his search of the South Australian coastline for an elusive harbour and site for the main settlement, whose name had already been decided upon – Adelaide. Initially considered as a possible site for Adelaide, Rapid Bay has had a varied history that belies the beautiful coastal recreation area that we all know now.
