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.
