Our Early Multicultural Heritage – Early Families of Nundle, Bowling Alley Point & the Goldfields
August 21, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Our guest speaker takes a brief glimpse into the lives of some of the early families of the Nundle, Bowling Alley Point and Hanging Rock Goldfields, and reveals an interesting insight into our region’s multicultural heritage. From Ruzicka’s reef, to the short life Abel Henry Arford (1894 – 1917), to the largely forgotten Otto Kong Sing (1871-1917) who was admitted as a solicitor in New South Wales on 9 March 1895. It is believed that Otto was the first person of Chinese descent to be admitted as a solicitor or barrister in NSW or any other Australian colony.
Join us for this fascinating talk by Pam Brown on Wednesday 21 August 2019 at Calala Cottage Museum.
Our meeting starts at 7.30pm and usually concludes around 9.00pm after the talk and a delicious supper.
All welcome. You do not have to be a member of the Society to attend. Free entry.
