STRONG SUPPORT: Jeanette Alfredson with Dr Richard Hudson.

UP AT Pomona, the Noosa Museum team cannot be accused of being stuck in the past.

Beside all the relics of Noosa's rich past, the staff are now equipped with a digital voice recorder and a new broadband internet connection to help them link with Noosa's historical events. The broadband replaces an archaic dial-up service.

The new "mod cons" have been made possible through the generosity of the Tewantin-Noosa RSL and Citizens Memorial Club and the directors of Tewantin-Noosa RSL donating $1000 to the museum, where the staff are well aware that today's new gizmo is soon history and a worthy keepsake for future visitors to the old Noosa Shire Council chambers. Noosa Museum president Jeanette Alfredson said the new equipment would help the museum in its key role of helping inform people of where we came from and how we got to the present day.
