Associated with Kyneton since 1964. My father Max Finlason purchased Rock House property in 1964 and we settled here in the early seventies. Our children attended Kyneton Primary School and we now divide our time between Kyneton & Melbourne.

My connection to RM Begg has been over many years, but it was when my father Max Finlason was a resident at the Hostel for many years until he died in 2003, that my appreciation and understanding of it's great community value for aged care in Kyneton and the Macedon Ranges Shire became clear.
