Meetings at Marmong Point

On the third Saturday of the Month (except for December when it is the second Saturday of the month) The Lake Macquarie Family History Group holds its regular meeting at The Marmong Point Community Hall. Following are a few photos from last weekend's meeting.

When Covid came along we held regular meetings via zoom but our members were thrilled when we went back to face-to face events earlier this year. These gatherings provide opportunities for fellowship, learning and research.

Between 10pm and 4pm members and visitors are welcome to drop into the hall for a few hours or the day.  There are opportunities to get research help, borrow a book from our extensive library collection, join a discussion group, hear a guest speaker and have a cuppa with friends.

Cuppas and chats - an important activity

In our discussion group facilitated by our President, Anne, last Saturday members commented that what they most liked about our Group was the warm, friendly environment at our events.

Our Guest Speaker on Saturday was local trainer Anthony Tietze who gave an interesting and informative talk on First Aid and CPR. Members enjoyed the practical components of Anthony's presentation and the opportunities to use equipment and act as patients.
