In 1995 Chrissie Shaw, daughter of early members Rod & Fran Shaw gave us items from her parents' collections, including 2 manilla folders of song sheets, many of them undated. Dated song sheets range from 1957 to 1961.

Singabout 2(3),Dec 1957

Unfortunately the Newsletters from 1956 are missing, and there is no reference to the Club's 2nd birthday in Singabout, so we have no information about how it was celebrated.

Songs reprinted from Bush Music Club Song Sheets giving a selection of the songs collected in the past 2 years for the 2nd Birthday of the Bush Music Club. (4 foolscap pages, 7 songs)
