Avalon Beach Historical Society's 9th Great Historic Photographic Exhibition
Geoff Searl, President of the ABHS and local Historian becomes part of a Historic photograph - the Avalon Beach rock fall of 2017
The Avalon Beach Historical Society is celebrating its 35th year by doing what is done best by this society - engaging others in where we came from through the use of images, a model of a structure now gone, films, books and artefacts.
Next weekend, the June long weekend, thousands of images will celebrate our wonderful area, many not seen before. The ABHS Great Historical Photographic Exhibition is so big it will fill the main hall in the Avalon Recreation Centre. To commence Pittwater Online's celebrations we run an insight into the ABHS as this Issue's Profile of the Week, while, of course, this week's History page reshares Geoff's two year investigation into the Stewart Towers atop Barranjoey.
The ABHS Great Historical Photographic Exhibition is open 10 until 5 each day - enjoy!

Newport Community Centre To Host Pittwater Artists Trail Winter Exhibition
The PAT Winter 2018 Exhibition will run over the June long weekend again this year, with 19 artists exhibiting works from 10 am each day.
The exhibition will officially be opened Saturday 9th June and includes a presentation from the team at One Eighty about their work in the community. Everyone welcome to join us for opening drinks 6 - 8pm.
One Eighty is an impressive group of twenty-somethings with a vision for a future free of youth suicide. The Trail artists have donated artworks for a silent auction raising monies to support their events and the Shake it Up series of workshops they conduct regularly. The silent auction will start Saturday morning and last bids can be made until 12pm Monday 11th June. All works in the silent auction can be viewed at the exhibition, and HERE
