INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 3, 2008 27 STEPPING OUT www.innerwestweekly.com.au Society makes own history BURWOOD and District Historical Society will celebrate its 30th birthday with a Christmas in July dinner on Friday from 7pm at Burwood RSL Club. It will feature a traditional Christmas dinner and piano entertainment by Pat Taylor. The keynote speaker Professor Charles Bridges-Webb will give a talk entitled, Community Health and Medicine in Burwood -- People and History. The society was formed in 1978 by a group of local residents concerned for the preservation of the historically significant Appian Way estate. It now works with the community on matters of local historical importance, assisted by Burwood Council's local studies librarian. Society president Jon Breen said the 30th year is a milestone. ''The society is not only about local history but about how that local history ties into the broader historical perspective and our evolving historical landscape,'' he said. The cost of the dinner is $35. For bookings and information phone Chris Clarke on 9744 2787.
