Newsletters

The first news sheet was published in April 1976, a mere two months after the club was formed and one month after the first general meeting.  To quote the Minutes from the first meeting, – “ It was decided to print a news sheet on trial. Printing costs will be 4c a copy. Postage costs make distribution by post uneconomical. Mr Perkins to produce the sheet.” By December 1976 members could collect their copy from the Education Centre (above where CHIRP is now) or the market building (Tourist Information Centre now) for 10c.

An index to the Castlemaine Naturalist newsletter is available here (CLICK HERE). (Accurate through until end of 2016.  Thanks to George Broadway for putting this together).
