The 2013/4 Season of the Society starts on Monday 23rd September. Tom and Anne Johnston, local Donaghadee people, will be talking about a "Pioneer Among the Gumtrees". This is the story of their ancestor Thomas Nicholson who emigrated from Drumawhey to Australia in 1879. His story is told through his letters home to Donaghadee. The meeting will be held at 7.45pm in Donaghadee Sailing Club, 20 Shore Street.
There is a slight change in the fees payable this year. The subscription for each meeting will now be £3 due to increased costs. Members, on payment of an annual membership fee of £5, will be admitted to each meeting for £2. This is the first increase for a number of years and is mainly due to increased payments made to speakers.
The Poster for this talk is displayed in the "About Us", Next Meeting section.
