The South Eastern Historical Association - an umbrella group for historical societies and museums along the Mornington Peninsula, the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and down the South Gippsland and Bass Highways as far as Phillip Island and Wonthaggi - visited Phillip Island & District Historical Society Inc for their annual general meeting on Sunday 2nd August. The SEHA committee met around the museum's big old bank board table in the morning, then all delegates met up for lunch at the Cowes RSL. After that they held their meeting at the Heritage Centre Meeting room adjacent to the museum. The highlight of the afternoon was the presentation of a certificate of appreciation to Alison and Peter Brookes who have been delegates for Wonthaggi & District Historical Society Inc for many, many years, and Peter has served on the SEHA executive committee for some time as well. A gift of a bottle each of red and white wine was also made to the Brookes. The afternoon concluded with a delicious afternoon tea, contributed to by PIDHS members.
