Devonshire tea, historical displays, a photographic competition, the launch of a book and live music –you can expect it all at the 100th anniversary celebration of the Wingello Mechanics Instituate Hall. The celebration will be held on January 27 from 2pm and will mark 100 years since the second hall was completed in 1918. The first was burnt down in a bush fire.
Wingello is for a very famous connection – it was where champion bowler Bill O’Reilly played in the local cricket team. The Wingello oval is the Bill O’Reilly oval.
More on the history of the hall and oval will be on show during the centenary celebration and through a book, Glimpses of Wingello, to be launched on the day.
A celebratory dinner will begin at 6.30pm followed by a show by the Paddy’s River Band. The cost of the dinner and show is $40 per person.
