HARROW will celebrate the end of a successful five-year project to tell the stories of women who joined the community on Saturday.
A sold-out Pathways to Harrow event at Harrow Mechanics Hall with 250 attendees will hear from the a final five speakers: Bernadette Close, Jane Craig, Danielle Grindlay, Suzanne Waugh and Dulcie Williams.
The event will also launch a commemorative coffee table book featuring the stories of Pathways to Harrow speakers over the years as well as 16 ‘snapshots’ of other Harrow women.
The book, limited to 400 copies, features a foreword by Tamie Fraser and historical details of pioneering women who helped found the community.
The project was run by Harrow Bush Nursing Centre.
It has won several awards and accolades and produced a video documentary.
The launch event will also be filmed for the new season of ABC TV program Back Roads that tells regional Australian stories.
