The first Ladies Committee luncheon was held on Monday 25th February, 2019 when 39 members and their guests enjoyed an excellent meal and Dr Matthew Stephens as guest speaker. Research Librarian Matthew told us a fascinating story on the exhibition that he was working on at the Caroline Simpson Library and Research Collection for the Living Museum.
The exhibition named “Songs of Home and Distant Isles” (working title) focuses on music in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the influence early British settlers and indigenous people had on our domestic musical environment. Matthew’s talk was very well received.
The Ladies Committee May event will be held on Monday 27th May, 2019 with Nadia Duran from “Events by Nadia” as the guest speaker. Nadia has one of Australia’s leading event companies and will tell us her story of how it all started. I do hope to see many of you at the Ladies Committee’s luncheon during 2019.
Mrs Margaret Dawes-Smith, OAM
President, RACA Ladies Committee.
