ACON invites the public to share their memories from the organisation’s past 25 years.
ACON commemorates a quarter of a century of community service this year, and has established a special project to document its past through images and personal accounts.
All are invited to share information, stories and memorabilia, with select submissions being chosen to feature online.
“Over the last quarter of a century, our community has faced many challenges, chief among these being the impact of HIV/AIDS,” ACON CEO Nicolas Parkhill said.
“We’ve embraced new opportunities and had cause to celebrate many achievements. All this makes for a truly remarkable story full of courage, compassion, grief, laughter and love.
“In our silver jubilee year, ACON wants to honour the legacy of all those who have gone before us, so I encourage community members to write their own page in our community’s history by contributing whatever material they feel captures memories of or experiences with ACON over the last 25 years.
“It is important that future generations have access to this sort of archival material so they can better appreciate the people, groups and organisations that have helped shape our community.”
info: Material will be accepted throughout 2010. For more information or to submit material visit www.acon.org.au/25
