Dalbeattie Museum held its A.G.M on 6th December 2015.

Tommy Henderson was back in the chair, as Chairman, Donald Henderson could not attend.

The museum has made a healthy profit this year because it has sold a new DVD called Reflections of Old Dalbeattie. The museum also held a coffee morning, which was a great success and was well attended.

Tommy read Donalds report. This report reminded the members and friends what had happened throughout the summer season. Commenting on our reviews on Trip Advisor, which to-date were all very positive.

In museum business, Bill Borthwick explained our new suggestion for collecting subscriptions from members and friends. The company agreed to the changes. 

 After the museum business the company was given a talk and a PowerPoint presentation by Graham Roberts. Graham is the Archivist at the Ewart Library in Dumfries. His talk was on the life and times of Thomas Telford.

Thomas Telford was a Scottish Civil Engineer, who lived between 1757–1834. He lived a full and fascinating life. He was the engineer behind many of the bridges in Britain, but his most famous is the Menai Bridge in Wales. He also developed the roads in the Scottish Highlands, and the Caledonian Canal.

Everyone enjoyed Grahams talk very much.

Tommy Henderson gave the vote of thanks and the meeting ended with refreshments.
