Farewell to the Bartel's

Due to all of the family of Ken & Phyllis Bartel leaving Robertstown as they have grown up, Ken & Phyl have decided to leave Robertstown and relocate to Ridgehaven in Adelaide.

They came to Robertstown in 1955 as Ken was employed with the Engineering & Water Supply Department and lived at the Pumping station for many years, before they shifted into the town.
