Gallery Opening Hours have changed

G’day everyone.

The Gallery is short on volunteers at the moment, with several valuable volunteers having to retire due to health.

As a result have had to change how our rosters work. It has also meant a change in the opening hours for the gallery.

The new times are:
Friday: 12 Noon-3pm
Saturday: 12 Noon-3pm
Sunday:  12 Noon-3pm

Please note that if you have a bus load of people wishing to see the gallery outside of those time, please contact us as early as possible so we can arrange someone to open the Gallery specially for your group.

And thanks to the great work Delilah does with the window displays, you can enjoy a small part of the gallery even when we are closed.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!!
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
You will be rostered on with an experienced Committee Member
and can boost your confidence and experience over time.
You will get to meet some wonderful people,
both in the Gallery and those Visiting,
and get to experience as much history and stories
as you do your Volunteering at the Gallery,
Give Peter a Call on 0429 811 958
or go through the Contact form on the website.

We Would Like Historic Stories and Photos Of This District

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.

Send your photos and/or stories via Facebook Messenger
to Social Media Editor on the Web Form.

If you have any questions, please feel free to use these channels of communication too.

Get creative, and we look forward to seeing what incredible stories come out of the woodwork!

Eudunda Heritage – ANZAC 2020 – April Windows Display

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
