Meander Memorial Hall commemorates those who have served in World Wars One and Two, and the Korean War. The hall was opened by the Attorney-General, Mr Fagan on the 3rd December 1954. 

At Meander last night a ball was held to celebrate the opening of the new memorial hall. This is a weatherboard and cement sheet building, with a projection box lined with hardboard, and is floored by myrtle cut entirely by voluntary labour. Guests of the ball included the Warden (Mr. Best, M.L.A.) and Attorney-General (Mr. Fagan), Mr. Atkin (president Deloraine R.S.L.) and their wives; Mrs. G. Duthie and Mr. Spurr, M.H.A.  

Mr. Best, who was introduced by the chairman (Mr. A. Stagg), congratulated the branch on its fine efforts and stressed the importance of war memorial halls to the community. Mr. Fagan also congratulated the branch on its remarkable achievements and said that the contractors, Mr. Jago and his son, had estimated that the hall would have cost at least £6000 without the voluntary help given. Mr. Atkins unveiled the honour roll.
