Have a look at this lot of beautiful agates that were donated to our club by Barrie and Jennie. Barrie has recently finished polishing this collection of 150 agates and thunder eggs.
Thank you very much Barrie!!!
The return of Aboriginal Artifacts
Pictured with our club president Max, is Rod Slockee, a Walbunja person. Rod is here being presented with some artifacts which were collected some years ago by the late husband of Val Byrne, in the Lake George area of NSW. Rod will return these items to the representatives of the Pejar Umalla people from the Goulburn area.
