Sesquicentenary committee member Geoffrey Greenaway said they had received wonderful feedback this week from local residents.

“There are some fantastic displays that give an insight into Moree’s history,” Mr Greenaway said.

“A big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to set up the displays,” he said.

A quick stroll around the Banquet Hall will take you back in time, and is sure to bring back some past memories of our town.

At least 60 displays have been provided for public viewing.

According to Mr Greenaway some of the historical displays were 12 months in the making, although most had come together in the past week.

“The committee had approached a cross section of the community and we are very pleased with how it has turned out,” Mr Greenaway added.

The displays will be available for public viewing each day from 9am to 6pm.

The hall will be open from 9am to 1pm on Friday, Saturday and Monday and 9am to 3pm on Easter Sunday.

“It would be a great way to share some memories with your family this weekend,” he said.

The displays will be wrapping up on Saturday, April 14.

The Historical Society and Gwydir Family History Society will be manning the doors and will be available for any questions asked from the public.

The cost is a $2 donation which will be going to the historical societies.
