WAHS Annual Lunch 2010 - Braving the elements

Despite sub-zero temperatures, just over 50 members and friends made their way- some on foot-to Dooley's Hotel where they received a warm welcome.

One has to admire those who came from the county, in particular our guest speaker, Julian Walton. Julian spoke about the hazards of the local history lecture, based on personal experience, both as lecturer and audience. A lesson to be learned: always be prepared for the unexpected, never rely on technology, always have a plan B!
