Goolmangar Hall turns 100

Goolmangar Hall turns 100

When this photo was taken in 1956, the Goolmangar School of Arts (or Goolmangar Hall as its better known) was celebrating its 50th anniversary, and as you can see, the local community turned out in force to mark the special occasion.

The hairstyles may be very different these days, but the popularity of the hall remains, and hundreds are expected to turn out this Saturday, June 24, for the halls centenary celebrations.

The day gets underway at 2pm with a country afternoon tea. During the afternoon a book written about hall will be launched, life memberships of the hall committee will be awarded to several staunch supporters, and plaques will be displayed honouring past executives.

Members of the Synott family, which donated the land for the hall 100 years ago, will also cut a centenary cake.

On top of this theres an auction, performances by local children and a BBQ dinner, while the Mackney Dance Band will provide plenty of toe-tapping music well into the night.
