This year, the Mulgowie Hall is 100 years old and the committee are looking for locals to share its history.

Mulgowie Hall Committee chairman John Emerick said they were planning to hold an event on 19 October and are seeking histories and old photos to display on the day.

“We’re not fully planned yet but we hope to get in touch with some of the older ones to get some information on CWA and Rural Youth,” he said.

“There was a Mulgowie [CWA] branch for many years and also the Younger Set too.

“We hope to have a display in the hall of old photos, information, and all that sort of thing.”

The committee are looking for any information related to the hall, particularly from groups and clubs who used the facility.

“We’ve actually got a photo of the Mulgowie Cricket Team in the early 1900s,” Mr Emerick said.

“And the Mulgowie Football Team, we have some photos of that.

“It’s all very interesting.”

For those who have moved further afield, please save the date for the centenary event and come along.

The event is shaping up to be a celebration of local history.

“We’ll be looking to get some old vehicles and tractors up there on the day,” Mr Emerick said.

“We’ve been in contact with the Pioneer Village in town and they’re bringing some ancient stuff out.”

If anyone has any information of memorabilia to share, please contact Mr Emerick on 0427061936.
