Plaques to celebrate Bamawm's centenary celebrations will be unveiled next month.By Elaine Cooney
Bamawm Recreation Reserve committee will unveil memorial stones at the original locations of Bamawm Central State School, St Paul’s Church of England and the Corner Store next month.
The committee is inviting past and present residents to attend the celebrations on November 17 and bring memorabilia, photos and stories from the olden days.
Bamawm resident Tom Davis said the occasion coincided with 100 years of settlement in the area.
Mr Davis’ father was a farmer in the area in the 1920s and he has continued the tradition.
Committee president Garry Mundie said the event was important for exchanging information about the area and to pass its history along to younger generations.
Campaspe Shire mayor Ian Maddison and councillor Greg Toll will open the celebrations.
The unveiling will begin at 1pm at Bamawm Recreation Reserve with afternoon tea to follow.
