It’s about us – it’s a way forward. This community is moving forward. Doing so without acknowledging the past is equivalent to being culturally orphaned. Junee is so fortunate to have its historical assets, both physical and cultural, pretty much intact.
The Council recognises the community’s wish to preserve and reflect its history to residents and visitors of Junee. The preceding decade has seen yearly deposits to Junee’s historical bankbook.
There have been books published, movies made, buildings preserved, museums enhanced, main street makeover, photo competitions and twilight tours tramping in cellars once forgotten. All the while, community organisations are leading the way, with imagination and enthusiasm.
The Council’s role is as an enabler and coordinator, bringing together the work of individual people and organisations so that the history and culture of Junee can be reflected in its future.
