Listen To Older Voices : Elaine McGavin – Part 2

Date:

Share post:

Listen To Older Voices : Elaine Mcgavin – Part 2 Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by
Rob Greaves for Uniting Melba and podcast through the Toorak Times & Tagg.
Listen To Older Voices presents the stories, views and opinions of our older citizens. It is predominantly in a life & times format, with interviewees reflecting upon their lives from earliest memories. An underlying principle of the program is to promote the concept of positive ageing, reinforcing the principle that older people have & continue to make a valuable contribution to both their local & wider community.
This is another wonderful Golden Moment Repeat program, where we have dipped into our vault of treasured memories and retrieved a story from the archives that we believe deserves being repeated for those who may have missed it the first time. The story of Elaine McGavin was first aired in November of 2007. 
Continuing her fascinating stories, which are punctuated by an easy sense of humor, we learn of her life with husband Ron and other employment, which included working in what was one of Melbourne’s most iconic and well know bookshops – the Theosophical Bookshop. Elaine also talks about her work as the secretary to the Chief Health Surveyor in the City of Hawthorn.
Finally Elaine also shares tales of her trip to Thailand. Her life is full of activity and stories including one involving Bert Newton. Listen to the stories of a woman who has lived a rich life to its fullest.
