Modewarre Memorial Hall : November 2013
Photographs supplied by Nancy Alford

A hall commemorates those who served in World War One.

Because they found the door of the Memorial Hall not only locked against them, but also nailed up, returned soldiers of Modewarre burst open the door when the annual ball was held. They strongly object to any memorial hall beign used for dancing, and by deputation have enlisted the co-operation of the Geelong branch.

Modewarre soldiers say the term memorial hall is misleading: it is in no way connected with soldiers, nor had they any representation on the governing body. They threaten to continue their opposition to the hall being used for dancing until the committee discards the term memorial hall.
Mirror (Perth), 7th May 1927.
