80th Birthday Celebrations Day 1

Eudunda Quilter’s Patchwork & Quilting Exhibition
There were 90 odd quilts shown and they looked fantastic. Well worth a trip just for that.

Colin Thiele Performances
The performances by students from Eudunda Area School, Eudunda Lutheran Primary School and Robertstown Primary School were superb. Great singing and funny performances based on Colin Thiele’s books with a slant by the students to a “packed house”.
Unfortunately I can’t show photos as I don’t have permission.

Celebrationary Lunch
Catered by the Heritage Committee. A chance for people to get together and refresh acquaintances. One couple I know of was thrilled to meet again after 40 years away.
We were lucky enough to meet Colin’s two sisters who were here to celebrate with us.

Unveiling of the Julia Creek Police Station
The official unveiling was held in the afternoon with about 60 of the South Australian Police Historical Society present with local residents there was a very good crowd to this significant event. The scenery at this location was worthy of photos, without there being an historic marker.
