Living Treasures of Greater Dandenong. Oral history. Biography.

Living Treasures was a local project where people who have made a lasting impact on the quality and nature of life for all of the City of Greater Dandenong community were named and honoured.

The project was initiated as part of the city’s celebrations for Australian Federation in 2001... In 2005, the Living Treasures project called for nominations again, and a further seven people were honoured.

Some of the Living Treasures were quiet achievers, whom without, great things would never come to pass. Others devoted themselves to the community and influenced the history, local economy, social, sporting and cultural life in Greater Dandenong...
