Thank you the people of Enoggera and surrounding districts for the support you gave our Society during 2018; the interest shown in our displays when we ‘go public’ is very encouraging.
We really enjoyed being part of the Mitchelton Railway Station Centenary on the 4th November. Our last Thursday opening at Enoggera Memorial Hall will be on the 13th December. We will resume on the 17th January, to begin celebrating our Silver Anniversary year. In the meantime our 2019 calendar will be on sale at Brookside Shopping Centre and available at our library up to and including the 13th December.
With the passing of Remembrance Day we completed four years commemoration of the centenary of World War 1. We know that peoples suffering continued for longer. Before the war concluded and into the early twenties, a ‘Spanish Flu’ pandemic ravaged the world over, causing hundreds of thousands, if not millions of fatalities. Australia too was affected. The pandemic was perhaps comparable with the Black Death that wiped out up to 25 percent of the known world’s population in the 14th century. The flu may have affected families of those who were young children at the time. We would be interested in hearing from you.
The Society wishes you the compliments of the festive season and implores all of you, in whatever way you celebrate to be safe.
