The Governor-General, treat Quentin Bryce will be attending to perform the opening ceremony of Snowy Scheme Museum in Adaminaby on 15 October 2011, at 11am.
As with the official opening of the Snowy Mountains Scheme on October 17 1949, when the Governor-General Sir William McKell performed the official duties, the Governor-General of today, will be performing the official duties at the new Snowy Scheme museum.
The Snowy Scheme museum will showcase the impact on the nation of the construction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme, by highlighting the achievements of the engineers, the workers, the machinery and the role the project played in the development of the modern Australian nation. The scheme is widely considered to be the greatest engineering project ever undertaken in Australia, with the museum collection creating a multi-dimensional insight into the Snowy Scheme and its legacy.
In the meantime, the Adaminaby community is busy preparing for the day when the “GG” comes to town, and the museum committee and helpers are also busy with the installation of the collection, exhibits and interpretive material to make this landmark project come to life. The museum committee would also like to issue an open invitation to anybody who would like to attend this special day and invite any interested person to join the museum community.
The museum is also looking for equipment with Snowy Scheme provenance, stories, memorabilia and research about the more than 100 000 people, many from overseas, who worked during the construction stage of the scheme.
Music for this occasion will be provided from about 10.30 am by:
- Cooma Harmony Chorus
- Cooma District band
- And school children from the Adaminaby Public School
Further information about the museum can be found on the website: http://www.snowyschemecollection.com.au/
