100th Birthday Bash Celebrations!
This February, the home of the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre turned 100!
Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate the centenary of our wonderful community centre building on February 21st! It was great to see so many faces, particularly those we hadn't seen in some time, and to hear all the great stories about our building's history.
A very special timeline was created for the centenary, illustrating the role the building has played in the community over the past 100 years. If you didn't get a chance to take a look over the weekend, the timeline will be on display at Newtown Library in a few weeks.
This event couldn't have happened without the help and expertise of so many people! A big THANK YOU goes out to:
Community Centre Board of Trustees for support and extra hands on the day; Rick Sahar for MCing; James Coyle for pulling together the evening entertainment; Vanessa Rushton for taking snaps of the event; Jahn Lindsay for the great cake; Hayley Moore for poster and timeline design; Ed Hamilton and Tiffany Matsis for timeline research; Ken & Heather Nelson for sharing their memories of the church; and Baobab Cafe for catering.
