Come along and join us at monthly meetings. Contribute old photos or documents that you may have. Join the committee. Make a presentation on local history. Recent presentations included the story of three castaways in 1823, the story of orphans at Nazerath House in Wynnum, the history of food processing plants in SE Brisbane, and the visit of Lord Kitchener to Brisbane in 1910.
We organise a number of social events through the year. This is a chance to meet and get to know other residents of Wynnum/Manly/Lota, or nearby suburbs.
