Journey to Jillong exhibition

from w
This afternoon Peceli and I went to the launch of the 'Journey to Jillong' exhi
bition at Osborne House in North Geelong. Our family had a display about our journey to Geelong from Fiji, photos, text and a few items. About twelve stories were displayed with musical instruments, photos, and all sorts of memorabilia, some from Greece, Slovania, England and other places. I was interested to meet one elderly couple and took a photo of them in front of a photo taken in Paris in 1957 as they escaped persecution.  The exhibition will be on for two more weeks and is well worth a visit.
At 53 Swinburne Street North Geelong  Friday 2 May - Sunday 18 May  Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays
Adults $5.00 Concession $2.50   Families $10.00 National Trust Members $2.50 
A Osborne House is a lovely venue, first built in the 1850s and at one time Corio Council offices. At present there's a dispute in the Geelong Council as some want to sell it, but others realize it's a great community resource for exhibitions and cultural workshops.
