Don’t for­get to check out Re­mem­ber When

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS - By Michael Mat­tingly

KYABRAM’S new­est ex­hi­bi­tion, Re­mem­ber When, has to be seen to be be­lieved.

It has come to­gether af­ter months of plan­ning, or­gan­is­ing and cre­at­ing, and the fin­ished prod­uct is spec­tac­u­lar.

Marg Smer­don, of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, said the in­spi­ra­tion came from a depart­ment store.

“We have ladies’ fash­ion, a cafe­te­ria, men’s fash­ion and a bar­ber in here,” she said.

“It is some­thing we had been think­ing about as it is sim­i­lar to what Iso­bel Harvie had done be­fore.

“Once we had the idea it all came to­gether in about two weeks.”

There is a count­less num­ber of man­nequins in the fake depart­ment store, with one even in­side the chang­ing room.

“All the cloth­ing has been do­nated by peo­ple from around the re­gion,” Marg said.

“We are very lucky to re­ceive the sup­port that we do.”

Marg said she and Marg Woods have al­ways helped Iso­bel Harvie with pre­vi­ous ex­hi­bi­tions.

Iso­bel has re­cently suf­fered some ill health and asked the present sub-com­mit­tee to con­tinue her work set­ting up and run­ning the ex­hi­bi­tions. The com­mit­tee con­sists of Marg, Denise Gem­mill, Marg Woods, Max­ine Schu­mann and An­drea Woods.

In hon­our of the in­cred­i­ble work Iso­bel has done for the Town Hall, the front room will now be known as The Iso­bel Harvie Gallery.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run through to March 2019, with en­try cost­ing $8 for adults and con­ces­sion $6.
