The Race is On!

There is dissent in the ranks! No-one can agree which is the best Hairy Mancestor to represent us for this year. So everyone has agreed to put their money where their mouth is.

The Race is On. Members and museum visitors are voting for their favourite Hairy Mancestor. Will it be William Henry Carter, Councillor of the Shire of Avon from 1901 to 1931? Will it be Jack Gilruth, with his 1910 portrait for his future mother-in-law in Dargo?

No doubt when the photos go around at the Christmas dinner on Monday night, one will come out a clear leader. But which one? Save your small change, everyone - it is a good cause.
