John valued and gave information about various old treasures that people had bought in to look at. With the cost of entry and unlimited valuations being only $5 people did get a real bargain, whether their items were or not.

Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery Looking For Volunteers

You can help the iconic Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery as a volunteer, donate as much time as you can, it is up to you.

Its a great opportunity to learn more about this district, and get to meet some people, or if you are shy; volunteer to do the research and restoration side of the gallery. Use your skills to help the gallery, or learn to use new ones by having a challenge to do so.

April Committee Meeting

Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery Committee Meeting for April 2019 was ‘abuzz’ with lots of things happening at the moment.

A few of the items discussed:

  • Planning for another Antiques Valuation Day after the successful one in March. Although a date is still to be set, it is likely to be in May.
  • Guttering/Roof issues have been fixes.
  • The committee heard from Peter Herriman about the plans for Eudunda’s 150th and Colin Thiele’s 100th Celebrations, with the first meeting asking for people to join the Organising Committee due this Thursday.
    The Heritage Committee are already thinking about things they would like to be involved in for that week of Celebrations.
  • The committee also heard about the proposal to build two more walking trails in the district.
  • There should be a new Gustav newsletter out soon too, so keep your eyes open for that.
