Filmmakers H.W. Collective have been commissioned to work with Meerschaum Vale Hall
What would our grand old Meerschaum Vale Hall talk about? The first settlers who walked from Meerschaum Vale to Casino and back to register their cedar-covered land; The excitement when she was built by the Community over 100 years ago; How happy she is to be set in such a beautiful area of valleys and mountains; The fabulous country-dances held over the years; The history of the area; The sadness, but also pride, behind the gold lettered Honour Rolls for the fallen; The fabulous Community effort given to totally renovate her for her 100-year celebrations in 2006; The delicious aromas from her local Curry Nights; The great old photos showing on the three great calendars; Would she know all the answers on Trivia Nights? The sadness and sorrow when a community member passes on; The wakes held; The support given by the Community at these sad times; How she enjoys the High Teas for the Mothers Meeting other Mothers group; And having Santa back again to give joy to the children; She might talk about how great in this internet age, that local people meet socially here regularly;
Let’s find out.
