congrats

Graham Filkins has been with the Logan City Historical Museum since it opened its doors in 1990
It’s impossible to work out just how many volunteer hours Graham has put in to help preserve and share the story of our local area and that’s why he was recognised as a Local Legend at our awards ceremony held on the 23rd January 2017. Congratulations, Graham!

Jim Chalmers – an absolute privilege spending time on the 23rd with so many selfless people in our community and recognising them as 2017 Local Legends who are always willing to offer their time, skills, energy and enthusiasm to help others in our community.

Proud to acknowledge and celebrate this year’s Local Legends, who have all helped make ours a community which looks out for each other and looks after each other
