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

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
Lest We Forget
The Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery window have a new display each month. If you are going past, don’t forget to stop and check it out. If the doors are open, please come in and have a chat.
