A PUBLIC meeting in Hamilton on Monday night has paved the way for the establishment of a temporary emergency care centre for children in the city. The meeting, convened by the Mayor, Cr. Ron Peck, was requested by an ad hoc Hamilton committee of the Children’s Protection Society of Victoria. About 70 Hamilton and district people attended the meeting in the Town Hall supper room, held with the aim of setting up a regional committee of the society. Preliminary investigations on the necessity of an emergency care centre for the district came out of a meeting last year attended by the president of the society, Mrs. Anne Clemens. Mrs. Clemens also attended Monday night’s meeting, along with a Gippsland and Regional Committee representative, Mrs. Anne Clemens.
