Recent Accomplishments of Lake Cargelligo & District Historical Society Inc.:
In 2005 we had many weekend working bees and weekly meetings to clean up reorganise displays in our historical society.Our society has a very small volunteer base 15 members to achieve many large tasks with very limited financial assistance. Two major achievements in 2005 was the successful acceptance of a grant for a new sign for the museum and completion of a fenced yard for the horseworks which is used regularly for displays. The most recent activity was to travel 40 km from town to a property to view and pick an old grader to add to our large collection of farm machinery at the museum.
We worked very hard to form strategic plans, mission statement and work very hard
