Friends of Orange Regional Museum General Meeting

By No Comments

Former Orange Mayor John Davis will be speaking at the next meeting of the Friends of Orange Regional Museum. John will be speaking on the beginnings and planning for Orange Regional Museum. How did we obtain the millions needed to build this superb building? Opened in 2016, Orange Regional Museum is an award-winning museum dedicated to sharing engaging exhibitions and diverse public programs for audiences of all ages. Davis said the $8 million museum was first conceived of in 1997. Construction started in 2015 and was completed in April 2016.
The evening will also include a screening of highlights from the digitised Channel 8 news, sport and current affairs footage donated to Orange Regional Museum by Prime Television in 2021.
Please RSVP by August 20 to Phillip Schwebel [email protected] or 0477075626
