The Empire Called......Invitation to a luncheon....
…to launch a website that honours the volunteers from Essendon & Flemington area who served in the First World War.
The website, still a work-in-progress, tells the stories of these men and women, and is a rich source of local history as well as a testament to the sacrifices they made.
Developed by local historian Lenore Frost it will prove to be much appreciated by future generations.
Come and hear Lenore talk about her project and view it in a PowerPoint presentation.
Come and talk to other people interested in preserving local stories and history.
