Margaret became the first volunteer with the Heritage Club in 1984, only retiring from volunteering in February 2005 and still drops in for a chat. Margaret and her husband, Ossie, bought land on Hindmarsh Island in 1971 and built themselves an Island Retreat (shack). They remember how they could walk from the Island to Goolwa and back on the Goolwa Barrage - it was a bit scary back then as there were no handrails! In 1981 the Browns retired permanently to their shack and in 1986 they sold up and moved into the township of Goolwa.
