AHS in the Community – 2018

In the spring of 2018, Elaine Ellwood became President of Aireborough Historical Society, this was when Elaine and the committee decided to purchase a gazebo. One that would stand out at outdoor events, and encourage the public to stop at our gazebo and  find out what  Aireborough Historical Society is all about and maybe become a member. Design idea & photograph by Carlo Harrison.

Parkinson Park, Childrens Gala – 2018

One of the many outdoor events we attended with our AHS Gazebo, this was the children’s Gala always held on the first Sunday of September by the Friends of Parkinson park. Every year the AHS calendar goes on sale first at Parkinson Park Gala then into all our other sales outlets. The AHS President Elaine Ellwood in the gazebo with a photographic display of “Children at play in Aireborough” the public were asked to come & find themselves on the many photos & claim a prize. The 2019 calendar and some AHS merchandise like mugs, place mats etc, were on sale.
