At the RHSV Annual General Meeting on Tuesday evening, six volunteers were recognised for their outstanding service to their historical society. The picture above shows three from the ranks of our RHSV volunteers. From the left is David Thompson, Ruth Permezel, John Rose with Acting President Bill Russell after having received their awards. Professor Russell noted that it was particularly appropriate that these awards be made in National Volunteer week.
Further awards were made to members of our Affiliated Societies who were nominated by their societies to receive an Award of Merit for their outstanding service.
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.
