REUNION FOR LONGTIME AND FORMER RESIDENTS OF RED HILL NEAR DROMANA, VIC., AUSTRALIA.
THE "BACK TO RED HILL" WILL BE HELD
AT THE RED HILL CRICKET CLUB PAVILION AT THE RED HILL RECREATION RESERVE (MELWAY 190 J3)
ON SUNDAY 22 OCTOBER,2017
FROM 1:30 TO 4:30 P.M.
A reunion was held in March 2015 with about 90 people attending despite clashing with a Hilli family reunion, which I didn't find out about until it was too late to change the date, and a Rosebud High School anniversary, as well as many people finding out about the event after it had taken place. This will be the last BACK TO I will be organising because it has occupied time needed to complete my chronology of burials at Dromana. If this reunion is enjoyed as much as the previous one, some people might form a committee to organise the next one.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet your old friends while you still can.
Since the last reunion three family histories have been written, two of them by Barry Wright and Helen Blakeley who contacted me through family tree circles. They add significantly to the information in Sheila Skidmore's THE RED HILL and PENINSULA PIONEERS, written by Stephen Lynch, our fellow member, toolaroo.

He has extensive information about Henry Gomm of Somerville, Joseph Porta (Victoria's first bellows manufacturer) and Captain Adams of Rosebud.
