Johnny Pace

Johnny Pace is a well known entertainer, best known for his many television appearances, particularly as one of the stars of Channel Ten's Celebrity Game.

He has been involved in Cabarets with a blend of jokes, songs, impressions and slapstick and has won two MO Awards as the Best Comedy Act in Australia. He is currently the Vice Chairman and Event Coordinator of this year’s MO Awards. He arrived in Australia in 1970 after a very successful entertainment career starting in Britain, and including Europe and Africa.

Interestingly, apart from being very much involved in quite a number of Production Shows, he now teaches people in the workforce how to improve their creativity and productivity through professional self improvement programs. He concentrates on teaching people the benefits of "Putting Humour to Work" showing the effectiveness of stress avoidance techniques rather than stress management, resulting in a more pleasant and productive workplace.

Memory Man

Bob Mitchell‘s first interview was in 1996, a very personal one which captured the memories of a dying father. The oral recordings led to a book ‘Scone Larrikin’ which was both self published and published by the NSW branch of the Oral History Association Of Australia (OHAA) in 1997.

Two years later the State Library published a special Memory Man technique which explains the process by which life story audio recordings can be published as a book. These events led to an ongoing association with OHAA and a mission to help families capture precious family oral histories before it is too late.

Tuesday 3 December

Angel Flight is a charity that coordinates non-emergency flights to help country people trying to deal with the triple trouble of bad health, poor finance and daunting distances. All flights are free and may involve patients travelling to medical facilities anywhere in Australia. We also have volunteer drivers who collect the passenger from the airport and take them to their medical appointment/or accommodation once arrived. Angel Flight is unique in the fact that all flights are conducted by pilots who volunteer their time and aircrafts to assist rural Australian’s receive medical treatment that is not available in their home town.
