General Meetings and speakers for 2019

Topic/s


10 November 2019

Speaker: Graham Sims


“Arthur Stace, The Eternity Man”     


The Guest Speaker will be Graham Sims JP. Graham had a 40+ year career in education, as teacher, consultant, Chief of Public Relations, Principal, Inspector of Schools and Director of Education. He specialised in Languages, teaching French, German, Indonesian, Malay and English, both here and overseas. After his retirement in 2000 he served as Principal of two Islamic Colleges in Sydney. Graham has a wide variety of interests, including wildlife conservation, cryptozoology, folk history and the restoration of vintage microcars (or ‘bubblecars’) of which he owns and drives three.


For over 37 years and written over half a million times, throughout the city of Sydney, on footpaths, stone steps, in doorways and in many public places, appeared a mysterious, one-word sermon... ETERNITY... first in chalk, and later in crayon, (because it didn’t wash away in the rain.)

It was not there one minute, and there the next. For at least 25 of those years, no-one knew who was writing it, or what it actually meant.

The story of the ‘Eternity’ message, and of the quiet, dignified, private little man who wrote it, has at last become part of Sydney’s folk history

PLEASE NOTE

To conduct some of this year’s excursions we will be applying for the use of Blacktown City Council’s community buses, which are either 14 or 21 seaters, so our plans are firstly subject to bus availability, and secondly to the size of bus we are allocated
