MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall joined hundreds of Myall Creek district locals and former locals last weekend to mark the 100th anniversary of the much-loved Myall Creek Soldiers Memorial Hall.

Mr Marshall said the hall had been an important focal point for the local community over many years.

“A lot may have changed during the last century, however, the use and the importance of the Myall Creek Memorial Hall for the community has remained the same,” Mr Marshall said.

“In 1923, when the Hall was officially opened, the Inverell Times reported that more than 400 people from across the district turned out for a night of dance and celebration.

“A century on and the facility remains a thriving community meeting place, with a number of groups originally involved in establishing the building, like the Country Women’s Association, still regular users.

“It was wonderful to see local stalwart Ian Davidson acknowledged for his whopping 59 years of voluntary service on the Hall Committee, helping to maintain and improve the Hall and facilities.

“Myall Creek Hall has played host to countless birthday parties, cracker nights, sporting days and popular dances over many years.

“The memories and milestones the hall must have witnessed is quite remarkable.

“Congratulations to the current Hall Committee members and the many members and volunteers who have served over the past 100 years.

“Thank you for looking after this gem of a small community Hall.”

During the celebrations Mr Marshall presented a certificate of appreciation to local hall committee stalwart Ian Davidson, who recently retired after devoting 59 years of volunteer service to the hall and community.
