Leading up to Heritage Week the following month, with its theme of the 1950s, the August meeting will take us back in time to the excitement of the 1954 Royal visit, when the Box Hill Council and citizens pulled out all stops to make the occasion memorable.  Events ranged from a massive flower show at the town hall to the Cavalcade of the Southern Cross held at what is now City Oval.  Do you have any memories of the occasion? If so, please contact the secretary.

Date: Sunday 15th August
Time: 2.15pm
Venue: Bert Lewis Room, First Floor, Box Hill Library, 1040 Whitehorse Road Box Hill
