Cecil Plains Memorial HallPrint Page
Cecil Plains Memorial Hall was originally erected in memory of those who lost their lives in World War One.
There is a movement on Cecil Plains for the establishment of a School of Arts as a soldiers' memorial. In soliciting support the hon secretary, Mr. W. S. A. Grimes, writes : The public of the district of Cecil Plains, both returned soldiers and civilians, desire to erect some memorial to those of their firends and relatives who made the supreme sacrifice in the late war. They have decided that School of Arts, to be known as "The Soldiers' Memorial School of Arts," would be a fitting memorial. Such an institution while being of great benefit, would serve as a memorial for all time.
