Butting in and a bit late..
I wonder if it would have had anything to do with the Gordon Institute.. as
"alma mater" to the apprentices of the depression years..and indeed a type of "
Apprenticeship week".
I believe that the APEX movement also had its genesis in Geelong.
I also recall my father's involvement with the TOC'H' movement all of which may
have been part of local concern for the well being of the youth of the area..in
those years...
wouldn't a membership list of persons associated with the various "service &
youth clubs be handy eh !
