"Use it or lose it" as Goomboorian Hall hits 100 years
INTRODUCING the Goomboorian Hall ...
Hall president Brian Day said he wanted Goomboorian residents, their friends and anyone with a Goomboorian connection to come along on September 6 to get to know the historical building which had been the district's living heart since before the First World War.
And he said it may well be a case of "use it or lose it," as the hall looked to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
Its continuing relevance was on show recently when an information meeting on coal and coal seam gas attracted a capacity crowd of residents and their friends.
Mr Day said he wanted people to realise the hall was there for them.
He said people who wanted to attend the celebration dinner would have to book with him on 0407 398 407 by Friday week, August 29.
The cost is $15 a head - not bad for a two-course meal with live entertainment by Bruce McGillvery.
That starts at 5pm, but the fun begins at noon, with kids' activities, including face painting and a jumping castle and then a sausage sizzle to keep hunger at bay from 4pm.
"We want people to get to know the hall and use it," Mr Day said.
"It's a perfect party venue, has a full kitchen and can easily cope with 100 people."
