Nhill avi­a­tion 10th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Nhill Avi­a­tion Her­itage Cen­tre has in­vited the wider Wim­mera com­mu­nity to join in the cen­tre’s 10th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions on No­vem­ber 24.

In No­vem­ber 2008, Nhill and dis­trict res­i­dents at­tended a pub­lic meet­ing to dis­cuss the for­mer Royal Aus­tralian Air Force – RAAF – base that ex­isted at Nhill aero­drome dur­ing the Sec­ond World War.

A mo­tion ask­ing for a com­mit­tee to be formed to de­velop a suit­able memo­rial was pre­sented and car­ried.

The elected com­mit­tee met and de­vel­oped a board of man­age­ment, which kick-started the de­vel­op­ment of what is now known as Nhill Avi­a­tion Her­itage Cen­tre.

The cen­tre is the re­sult of 10 years of com­mit­ment, ded­i­ca­tion and hard work by both the board and hun­dreds of mem­bers and vol­un­teers.

The board of man­age­ment has in­vited the com­mu­nity to at­tend the birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

The her­itage cen­tre open at 10am, with a bar­be­cue at noon.

Birth­day cel­e­bra­tion for­mal­i­ties will start at 1.30pm and mem­bers plan to start the cen­tre’s Wir­raway plane at 2.30pm.

There will also be a book fair set up in the flight of­fice, with books for sale for $1 each. will free
