1967

The execution of Ronald Ryan on 1 February brought condemnation of capital punishment in Father Tucker’s editorial.  This followed a document "Why is There to be a Hanging?" prepared and signed by senior members of the Brotherhood: Father Tucker, Bishop Sambell, David Scott and Janet Paterson  [1]

 

1992

"Big Bin" Material Aid Store opened by Hon Kay Setches, Minister for Community Services, at 96 Fyans Street, South Geelong in February following an extensive community needs study in 1991-1992 in light of the impact of the collapse of the Farrow Group in 1990.  In its first 5 months of operation assisted 2,773 families with clothing, furniture & household goods.  [2]
