Mission 1: Complete Celebrate Living History of Frankston Mission 2: Become a not-for-profit social enterprise

So i’ve completed mission number one: Successfully run Celebrate Living History of Frankston but mission two is still in the works!

Right now i’m wading through paperwork to become a social enterprise which will enable me to continue working with students and seniors to celebrate stories about history, culture and community.

So i’ve come up with a new name Celebrate Living History and have quite a few statements of purpose including

1. Celebrate Living History aims to nurture relationships between seniors and youth to celebrate stories about history, community and culture.

2. To provide a nation-wide intern program for tertiary students that will bridge the gap between generations

3. To organise exhibitions, publications and video that will promote positive aging of seniors.

4. To provide opportunities for students to gain real life experience in event organising, journalism and aged care making it easier to gain graduate positions.

My main challange is to get Celebrate Living History Victoria running before the deadline of the Local History Grant Program which is on Monday 12 November.

I’m not sure if i’ll make it, but i’m going to try…its these letters that make me realise what i’m doing is for the greater good of the community and regardless if I receive the grant or not i’m going to keep going!

    Hallo, I am not sure how we should be looking at this Frankston story, but would like to add… my husband – Ivan – was born there. He became ill with TB when only 7 years of age and spent a long time at the then Mt. Eliza Children’s Hospital – today part of the RCH. His parents, Grandmother and sister and her husband, all had connections with Davey Street and Playne Street. We have since then been to a wonderful concert at the hall when the Grimethorpe Colliery Band came out from the UK. Best wishes to all. Patricia Hammond
