Upcoming Meetings:

December 9th, 2022

The Christmas meeting of the SAMHS will be held on Friday, 9th of December at the Living Choice Retirement Village, 123 Fisher St, Fullarton at 11:45 am.

Our last SAMHS meeting for this year will be held at 12 noon on Friday 9th of December in the small function room at Living Choice, 123 Fisher St, Fullarton. Afterwards we will have lunch in the new on-site restaurant - Castello's Cucina. A menu will be sent out to attendees this week so we are well prepared to order lunch before the talk commences.

Reservations for this meeting are now closed.

Our speaker, Susie Herzberg AM, will touch on some discussion on relations with First Nations people in her talk on the topic - 'Building the Overland Telegraph Line 1870-1872, a 21st Century Perspective'. The topic is of great interest to many of us with links to outback/bush medicine during our working lives.
