Unfortunately Sue couldn't attend due to a prior commitment so President of the Society, Noel Withers accepted the award on the Society's behalf with the following response:-
" It is with great pleasure that I accept this award on behalf of the Greensborough Historical Society, though I am merely the person who shouts words of encouragement, our Archivist Sue Ballantyne couldn't be here tonight due to a prior commitment but it is Sue who with a dedicated band of workers each Thursday allocate numbers, photograph, scan and then key relevant details of our ever expanding collection into the Victorian Collection.
We are probably the youngest group represented here tonight having formed just 3 years ago but which allowed us to use the Victorian Collection from its earliest days.
It is important to us that we get local history out to the wider community and now along with our talks to schools, local community groups and our guided walks we now have another avenue to do this, the "Victorian collection".
To all those associated with Museum Victoria especially Victorian Collection I say keep up the good work and I thank you."
