CLUB SPEAKER - Terry O’Malley with a presentation about his visit to the war-torn village of Oradour-sur-Glane in France. On 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in Nazi-occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS company. A new village was built nearby after the war, but French president Charles de Gaulle ordered the original maintained as a permanent memorial and museum.
GUEST SPEAKER - Greg de Moore will talk about Tom Wills was probably Australia’s first professional cricketer and his life story is heartbreaking. It will be well worth the effort to come along and hear of Greg’s research.
