And an ENORMOUS weekend

The Governor and Mrs Hurley came to Kandos yesterday! Yes it was a very big deal!

His Excellency General The Honerable David Hurley ACT DSC (retired) and Mrs Hurley attended the Kandos Industrial Museum and His Excellency opened the renovated museum. It was his first official engagement since his appointment. The Vice Regals were so gracious and interested in everyone presented to them, which was all the volunteers. (Yep even me). My role was to explain the accessioning process, which apparently I did okay.

Whether because it was their first official engagement, or they are genuinely interested, they were gracious and did not rush through, taking time to view the significant items and listen as each of us waffled on about our roles. They blew out their timetable but did not seem phased not rushing. Very exciting indeed.

For the centenary weekend M's home is open for viewing and Mrs Hurley said she had been told she must visit if they find time. Will let you know :)

Ben is here for the weekend with Jenna, she's been around for so long she's one of his best friends/worst enemies (a little like a pesky sister).
