Back to Cooroy Day voted a 'top job'

COOROY-Noosa Family and Local History Group have invited Jennifer Wynn to be guest speaker at the monthly meeting at 1pm on Saturday, July 11 at Cooroy Library.

Jennifer is a Cancer Council Champion and she will focus on the importance of minimising cancer in her talk, The Cancer Council - Prevention, Early Detection, Support After Diagnosis and Research.

The talk will be followed by afternoon tea and the meeting.

Back to Cooroy Day, held last month at the Cooroy Memorial Hall, has been voted a "top job" and the 200 Cooroyites who attended were glad they had made the effort.

The extensive photo displays of people, places and special occasions were catalogued and assembled by Bev Warner, the president of the group.

The displays were an immense undertaking and form the centrepiece of the event, drawing people together as they found pictures of relatives and friends.

Our Research Room at 41 Miva St, Cooroy is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9.30am-1pm.

Visitors and new members are welcome to use the library and internet facilities to access subscription sites. Visit www.genealogy-noosa.org.au or phone 5442 5570.
