President Andrew Lemon with Chris Cooze at her farewell.
Our Volunteer Co-ordinator Chris Cooze retired from her employment with the RHSV last week, and was farewelled with the best wishes of volunteers, staff and members of RHSV Council at a morning tea in her honour. Chris's professional expertise and manner was very much appreciated by the RHSV, and as it turns out, Chris likes us too, and plans to return as a Volunteer in the warmer weather!
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
