City woman scores ambassador position

AMount Gambier woman has been appointed as one of the History Trust of SA’s first regional ambassadors.

Angela Goode was last week announced in the position and will represent the History Trust at local community events and activities in the South East.

Ms Goode will join John Voumard to promote the work of SA History Network member groups and build stronger ties between the regions and the History Trust.

They will connect local history groups with support and opportunities provided through the History Trust’s annual grant programs and encourage and promote regional participation in, and showcasing of, local history in South Australia’s History Festival.

History Trust Board of Trustees chair Elizabeth Ho OAM said working with individuals and community groups, the regional ambassadors will look out for philanthropic opportunities to assist history initiatives and will act as local contact points for prospective object donations to the State History Collection.

“The creation of regional ambassador roles is more proof the History Trust of SA is determined not to be city centric. Our community grants support many local history projects across our state and we are proud to see the difference they make,” she said.

“Our regional ambassadors will be encouraging that local knowledge and community pride through the sharing of our compelling and unique stories.”

History Trust of SA chief executive Greg Mackie OAM welcomed the appointments.

“Both John and Angela are upstanding community members and supporters of cultural life. They are well positioned in their communities to represent the Trust and enhance the work of local history groups,” he said.

Ms Goode said she was delighted to be the South East ambassador for the History Trust of South Australia.

“I love the stories of our past. They invigorate me and have informed much of my writing life,” she said.

“Whatever rich personal or community heritage we carry with us, we bring insights of the past to share with others.

‘Museums and historical displays throughout our region, with support from the History Trust, give exposure to past events, people and artefacts. Our treasured histories are protected to be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. As an Ambassador for the History Trust, I will encourage communities in our region to protect and research their history and take steps to achieve this.”
