A Novel Life
A Novel life began earlier this year and is a collaboration of the Mulgrave Neighbourhood House and Councils Positive Ageing Lifestyles Program - otherwise known as PALS.
It is a collection of the many untold stories from our long time treasured residents. The stories reflect back over time and reveal some wonderful memories of what Monash was like many years ago. From unsealed roads, septic tanks, farmers markets and cows on Springvale Rd.
