Provisions Night at the Royal Hotel  at Gilgandra Thursday 15th October 2015

Last night the Provisions Night, which was hosted by the Lions Club, was held at the Royal Hotel in Gilgandra. This is in memory of the Tobacco Night that was held 100 years ago as part of the farewell events organised by the people of Gilgandra.

The Coo-ee March 2015 Inc. (Gilgandra Sub-Committee) would like to thank all individuals and organisations that have donated items to support the Coo-ee March 2015 Re-enactment.

Gilgandra’s Country Style Cafe presented a $3300 cheque to the Coo-ee March Re-enactment during the evening.  This money has been raised by the cafe owners through fundraising in the community. Thank you Sueanne and Mark.

Many of the marchers attended,  along with several groups of family members /descendants of  1915 Coo-ees Bill Hitchen, James McKeown, James Cameron, and William Howard.
