The Memorial Balcony was erected in memory of those who fell in the Great War 1914-1918.

On Wednesday evening of next week a grand concert by the Sable Grivell Concert Party will mark the re-opening of the Institute building following remodelling to express as a district memorial to the men who fell in the Great War and to meet the needs of increased accommodation in the main hall. A ceremonial will precede the concert. The Gawler Band will play on the balcony prior to 8 o'clock; and at that hour the President of the Institute (Mr. M.Lynch) will have the pleasure of officially declaring the building open for public usage and pleasure.
