Remembering the Past & Present in Tolmie

“Friends of St Josephs” is a small group of dedicated people who have been renovating the Catholic church in Tolmie.  There have been many improvements outside and new carpet has now been installed inside.

The latest venture is to place a square of paver bricks in front of the main entrance.  This will serve as a permenant feature in “Remembering Past and Present residents of Tolmie and District”.  This memorial is open to all who do live or have lived in this area, regardless of your religious denomination or belief.  People have the oppotunity to purchase a paver upon which a family name and date of residence will be printed.  The cut off time for applications is 1st September, 2016.

Many past residents have been contacted, but the group is also interested in those who currently live in the district.  For further information and forms, please contact Zaldah on 5775 2571 or Val 5775 1072.
