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.
