A new year begins

Happy New Year

2024 has started and the Chinese New Year will be here soon also 10th February its The Year of the Dragon 2024 and it is projected to bring prosperity and good fortune.

Whilst I am definitely a glass ½ full person and always looking forward at all the exciting possibilities possible for the Cyril Callister Foundation to be engaged in, this year in particular I have taken abit of time to reflect backwards and remember all the amazing people, community groups and companies that have supported us so far in our first very important 8 months of our new museum in Beaufort, Victoria.

It is important that we are grateful for all that people do for us….so if I may I would like to share with you all, as many of them i can remember LOL and in no particular order.
