Wow how the year is flying.. we are flying along and having such a great time.. 

Our Big M project is coming along in leaps and bounds and we are gathering so much information and storing it all in one place that it will be the only place in the Wide Bay to look for your family or history on the area. 

Our volunteers are constantly adding new records and working endlessly to put it together.. without them this amazing idea would never have happened.. 

We are looking for new volunteers so if you have some spare time and would like to help out then we would love to have you come down and meet us. 

We are excited we got a grant to update our equipment and are currently in the process of adding new equipment and changing and redesigning our rooms....
