It is a great pleasure to announce that Helen Gobbi, the History Monash Inc historian and Vice-President, was awarded a Medal (OAM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List on 8 June 2020. Helen’s award is for “service to community history”. Her award is very well deserved, as Helen has contributed actively to History Monash Inc for over twenty years (including as President for nine terms).
