The first of the Historical Society's Gladstone meetings for 2011 will take place on Wednesday 16th of February at 7 for 7.30 pm and will be on the subject “Changes blowing in the wind ? ; the Australian flag and constitution”. Our guest speaker will be Peter McFarland.
Peter will be familiar to many, having been a long time headmaster at Orange Public School .He is a keen student of the constitution and also a popular lecturer on Australian history at our local U3A.(University of the third age).
Originally the topic for this meeting was to have been “150 years of newspapers in Orange” but a clash of commitments has meant that this topic will be dealt with at the Society's March meeting on Wednesday 16th. The Society apologies if anyone has been inconvenienced by the change,
