Stories from the Honour Boards: Lives, Links & Legacy – The website launch
April 22 - April 22 | 6:00pm - 8:00pm| Free
Lives, Links & Legacy: the website launch.
The official launch of the Saint Andrew’s Uniting Church Heritage Committee website ‘Stories from the Honour Boards: Lives, Links and Legacy’ is to take place on Friday 22 April at 6pm at Saint Andrew’s Uniting Church, Brisbane City.
The launch will highlight the work completed to date and honour the contribution, bravery and sacrifice of the 267 service men and women whose names appear on the Honour Boards in the Merrington Anzac Memorial Peace Chapel. This ongoing project grew out of the research initiated several years ago by Noel Adsett and is now supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteers.
A 2015 Historypin Grant through the State Library of Queensland’s Q Anzac 100: Memories for a New Generation program supported by the Queensland Government provided the initial opportunity to take these stories to a wider audience.
The grant also facilitated the development of the website; this provides the means of taking the stories to the widest possible audience, as well as managing and storing this important historical information.
