Just a reminder that our November speaker, Andrew Tink, will be talking about ‘Honeysuckle Creek: the story of Tom Reid, a Little Dish and Neil Armstrong’s First Step.

His talk is about the pivotal role that the tracking station at Honeysuckle Creek played in the first moon landing.

His book gives a gripping account of the role of its director, Tom Reid, and his colleagues in transmitting some of the most-watched images in human history as Neil Armstrong took his first step.

Part biography and part personal history, the book makes a significant contribution to Australia’s role in space exploration and reveals a story little known until now.

You are invited to join us at the City of Canada Bay Museum, 1 Bent Street, Concord on Saturday, 5th November at 1:30 for a 2:00 pm prompt start, to find out more about this subject.

Following the talk you are invited to stay for some light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speaker and our members.

These talks are open to everyone. Admission is FREE, but donations are always welcome to assist with our continuing work at the museum.

See poster under “Upcoming Events” on our website. Please feel free to forward it on to anyone you think might be interested.
