This award winning school project from the year 2000 by the Stanford sisters, Samantha and Elizabeth of Sutherlands has been around a bit, being hosted in a few different places, and here we are 20 years later finally placing it in the Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery Collection.
When it was designed it used modern technology at the time, and had both text and graphics versions. Over time (about 2005) the web changed, browsers updated and at that time we could not get the graphic version to work well enough – so it was decided that it would be disabled.
The Text website is still a wonderful look int the 1920’s in Sutherlands, well worth a look. Many thanks to Samantha and Elizabeth for thier work.

This present time of uncertainty, where seemingly everything is on pause, provides the opportunity to self-reflect.
Story-telling is just one way that we can continue to connect and learn during this time.
We would love to receive stories and photos from you for the purpose of featuring on our Facebook Page. The potential to create a treasure-trove of stories and personal histories is enormous.
What the photo or story pertains to is up to you. It could be a photo of old farm machinery, the story of a drought, flood or other historic event, or an image of a memento or piece of technology that is no longer in use. The list could go on.
There are only two constraints: the photo, story or memento should have a link to Eudunda or any of the outlying districts, and a sufficient explanation of what a photo, or memento is.
April’s Window Dressing has usually featured an ANZAC theme and at the Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery this year we see that tradition has been carried on. This year, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, not only is the Heritage Gallery closed at the moment, but it has had a major impact on ANZAC Celebrations.
If you are a Facebook user you can read some great stories about Eudunda Service Personnel writing home to family and friends during World War I. Go to the EFHG Facebook Page here.
Many thanks to EFHG Volunteer Samuel Doering who does a marvelous job of keeping interesting new stories on this page

For January we acknowledge the great work our Firies ave done over the last couple months. Thankfully not much in our area, but sadly in many other places of Australia, with some of our local volunteers venturing off to places like Kangaroo Island where some third of the Island was devastated by fire.
We also wish to acknowledge all the volunteers in various emergency services who put in so much time for out community.
