Montagu Historical Society Meeting

Wednesday, 24 August 2016
Meeting for the Establishment of the Montagu Historical Society.

Montagu and surrounding area is no doubt rich in history – numerous stories about the legendary characters as well as the architecture and development of the town – all of these form an integral part of our cultural landscape.

By speaking to some of the locals it is clear to see that there is a definite need to embrace this cultural landscape of ours. Montagu folk should be made aware of our shared past - it is all around us and it should be recorded and treasured.
It is for this reason that the meeting will take place.

At this meeting a committee will be appointed who will work out a program for the remainder of the year. This program will include a number of public talks, book launches as well as outings to places of interest in the area.

Anybody interested in becoming a member of the soon-to-be-established Montagu Historical Society, but who is unable to attend, is welcome to forward their details beforehand (also if they are willing to serve on the committee).

oooOooo

Stigtingsvergadering van die Montagu Historiese Vereniging

Montagu en omgewing is gewis ryk aan geskiedenis – talle stories oor die verlede, legendariese karakters, asook die argitektuur en dorpsontwikkeling – dit vorm als deel van ons kulturele landskap.
So met die omgaan met sommige mense in die dorp is dit duidelik dat daar ‘n werklike behoefte bestaan om hierdie erfenis van ons te ontgin. Mense moet bewus gemaak word van ons gedeelde verlede hier om ons, en in die proses, moet dit wat ons het, opgeteken en bewaar word.
Dit is vir hierdie rede dat die volgende vergadering belê word.

Op hierdie voorgestelde vergadering sal ‘n komitee aangewys word, wat die beplanning vir die res van die jaar sal uitwerk. ‘n Program sal deur hulle opgestel word, wat sal wissel van praatjies, boekbekendstellings, asook uitstappies na plekke van historiese belang in die omgewing.

Enigeen wat belang sou stel om lid te word van die Montagu Historiese Vereniging, maar nie die vergadering sal kan bywoon nie, is welkom om hul name vooraf op te gee (so ook as hulle bereid sou wees om op die komitee te dien).

Venue
Montagu Museum. Woensdagoggend, 24 Augustus 2016 om 11h00.
Tee en koffie sal goedgunstelik deur die Montagu Museum voorsien word.
