Maley Portraits

John S. Maley as a young man (c.1866)
John S. Maley as a mature man (c.1896)
Elizabeth K. Maley (nee Waldeck) as a mature woman (c.1896)
As part of the Maley Family Tree Project, these 3 copies of sketches of John and Elizabeth Maley have now been framed and are on display in the Dining Room. Many thanks go to Kylie for allowing us to copy the originals, to Peter at Geraldton Picture Framers for the wonderful framing and to all the descendants of John and Elizabeth, who have assisted with this project.

Update to Benefactors Board

Two more names have been entered on the Benefactors Board at the Pioneer Museum.
The first is Lotterywest who recently provided funding of $10,000. This grant is being used to have a display cabinet made to show some of the costumes we have in storage.
The second is the Estate of Bob Sullivan. Bob's car trailer was donated to the museum for the use of the caretakers and a donation of money is being used to pay for the construction of a pair of large doors that are currently being built at the Greenough Regional Prison and will go on the Old Garage.
The museum in its appreciation of the above generous donations, is happy to be able to add their names to our Benefactors Board.
