Our speaker this month is SAMHS member, winemaker (Ellender Estate) and specialist dentist, Dr Graham Ellender who has a long-held interest in the confluence of wine, medicine and Australian early colonial history.

Those who attended the AGM in August will know that refreshments are again being served at meetings and masks, although not mandatory, are worn by many attendees.

Please note a 'Save-the-date' for the 27th October meeting when Dr Jacqueline Jepson will speak about Professor RP Jepson. Feel free to re-invite guests who accepted invitations for the cancelled-at-short-notice May meeting.
