We are gathering stories and anecdotes from locals of Drysdale, Clifton Springs and Curlewis to produce a short film. If you have a story, a tale, or memory that celebrates the local area or a local event or personality, we want to hear from you. What did Drysdale look like 50 years ago? 20 years ago? Last year? We ask that you to limit your story to 7 minutes and to be mindful and respectful of others in the telling. If you want to contribute to this local history project, bookings are essential. Participants will need to book directly with the library. Drysdale@grlc.vic.gov.au or 5251 3855
