Rochester Historical and Pioneer Society has gratefully received memorabilia left at the Campaspe News office.

Early membership cards for the Rochester football, quoits and gun clubs have been passed to the group to be displayed in the museum.

President Lorraine Haines was thrilled to receive the memorabilia on behalf of the group.

The society received a letter from a Melbourne visitor Colleen McCoy who had sought information of her grandfather Robert Whitla, a past resident and the society was able to provide the information from its records.

‘‘Whilst we were in Rochester last week we paid a visit to the cemetery,’’ she said.

‘‘We were very impressed by the care taken and the condition of the cemetery.

‘‘As a town you should be very proud of the community which looks after it.’’
