I’ve spent almost 2.5 years volunteering at the Bendigo Historical Society helping to catalogue their collection. It has been a great experience. There’s no better place to learn about the history of a town or place.
I picked up valuable skills in the process - cataloguing and indexing. I also learnt valuable people skills. The people there were very easy to get along with and I really enjoyed my time there.
The Society is trying to find a more permanent home for their collection. I wish them well in their endeavours.
