The Friends would like to acknowledge the contribution, commitment and generosity of the people who have created and maintained our web presence over many years. Gaye Gadsden, our first Coordinator, first established our web presence through Vicnet. This was a cost-free start to getting online. Thank you Gaye. Bradley Jarvis then volunteered to research, construct and update an independently managed website presence from 2005-January 2011. Thank you Brad. In 2010 the Friends developed and launched this current website. We thank Sue and Bruce Tardif for the work they did to research, establish and maintain the site from Sept 2010-Aug 2012; Aug 2013-present.
