Two members of the RHSV were presented with Awards of Merit by RHSV President, Dr Andrew Lemon, at a small luncheon held in their honour at the RHSV headquarters yesterday. On the left is Vicki Court, who was both a staff member and volunteer at the RHSV, and on the right is David Oldfield. Both were recognised for their meritorious service to the RHSV. Vicki is retiring from her position at the RHSV, but will continue working part-time as a librarian, and David and his wife have had a tree-change. We give them our best wishes and thanks for their dedicated work over a long period.
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
