LCA Story of the Week:
Life is too interesting to overlook anything. So says Chris Halbert, whose volunteering life involves preserving history in many forms, from football memorabilia to sheet music. For Chris, who manages the South Australian National Football League History Centre and is a choir librarian at Adelaide’s Bethlehem congregation, each piece tells a story that keeps history alive.
