Coo-ee March Re-enactment Farewell Ball Friday 16 October 2015

The Coo-ee March Re-enactment Farewell Ball was held at Gilgandra Shire Hall last night, in memory of the Farewell Ball that was held for the 1915 Coo-ees on Friday 8th October 1015.

Many of the people who attended took the opportunity to wear 1915 period costume.

An official welcome was given to the Coo-ee marchers by the Mayor, Cr Doug Batten.  Each marcher was introduced to the audience.

The marchers all enjoyed dancing the Barn Dance, and there was dancing throughout the evening.

Descendants and family members for several of the 1915 Coo-ees also attended the Ball.
