Alice Smith, a stalwart member of the Melville History Society, passed away on 29 December 2020 in her 97thyear. Alice joined MHS in 1987, served on the committee from 1991 to 1994, and was elected President in August 1996, a position she held until 1999. Alice was also Vice-President from 1999 to 2002. Alice had a long memory of history of the Melville district, and would have heard many stories in her role as an interviewer for the oral history project. She continued her long association with the MHS and rarely missed a meeting or outing. She will be missed.


Congratulations to MHS's life member, Mardi Quinn OAM, who was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in the General Division in the Australia Day 2020 Honours list. Congratulations too on her recently published book 'Snapshots'.


MHS expresses our sincere thanks to Yolanda Cool for all her hard work with the museum and the Society over many years. We have benefited greatly from Yolanda's knowledge, experience and skills, and a renewed vision.
