150 Years of Events – share your story

February 20, 2019

This year we will celebrate our past while innovating our future. Different events will mark this historic occasion including open days at our villages, the unveiling of a tapestry especially sewn for the event, and much more.

As part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration we are on the look-out for photographs and stories that most represent OCAV’s history over the last 150 years.

This may be a photograph of a significant moment, a special event that took place in the community, or a photograph of a resident, donor, staff member or volunteer who has an interesting story to tell.

Please attach a short story to accompany your photograph (in no more than 200 words) about the photograph and its significance to OCAV over the last 150 years, and send to 150th Project Manager Penny Underwood: mediawise@mediawise.net.au.
