Exhibition at Old Post Office Museum

War and Warrandyte 1914-18 - Warrandyte Historical Society’s tribute to the centenary of the First World War is its next major exhibition "War and Warrandyte 1914-18". Visitors will be able to imagine what it was like to live in a small community like Warrandyte and find out who enlisted, how the community responded and what the outcome was for families.

The exhibition itself will have two components. The first is the Hall of Honour which will feature the stories of the men who enlisted and the progress of the war and the battles in which they fought. The second is the parlour, the heart of the home, depicting life for women and children over the war years.

The exhibition will be opened on Friday 5 December at 7:00 pm by a WW1 descendent, and Warrandyte resident, Maxine Chapman. The exhibition will remain in place over the corresponding centenary years of the war but will be updated as time progresses.

The exhibition will be open during Museum Opening Hours, Saturday and Sunday, 2.00pm to 5.00pm.

Fri 5 December

End-of Year Get Together
To round off the exhibition opening there will be the end-of-year get together. After the official opening ceremony, there will be a sausage sizzle, supper and chat. Richard Costello will provide WW1 music to entertain everyone.
