EVENT DATES: Saturday 5 November 2016
School’s in, at Bullumwaal.
The Bullumwaal Muster is for everyone who has ever lived, had relations live, been a student at the school, been gold prospecting or timber milling, or had any associations with the small town of Bullumwaal. This is your chance to meet with other Bullumwaalites, tell your story, and find out more about the place, its history and people, and help us reminisce about times past in a friendly gathering.
Coordinated by Janice Haynes, The Lady of History, daughter of Ray Haynes, who was the teacher at the Bullumwaal School No. 1794 in 1953 and 1954 and author of the book ‘The Bulumwaal Blues’. This project is auspiced by the East Gippsland Family History Group and funded by East Gippsland Shire Council Arts and Heritage.
The program at the Bullumwaal Muster on 5 November will include music by the legendary 85 year-old Geoffrey d’Ombrain, a talk on the history of Bullumwaal, poetry readings, songs, and a bit of a dance, performance excerpts from ‘Teach’s Blues, a display of School records and photographs, recording of stories and reminiscences, and a scrumptious barbeque. We are also fundraising to help restore the famous Bullumwaal Curtain circa 1895. So there’s something for everyone in Bullumwaal on 5 November. Get along for a great afternoon’s entertainment if you can.
