Honour your Family Veteran this Anzac Day

Purchase a Paver to value our veteran’s service

We have told you about the Glenorie Progress Association (GPA) offer for all resident to have names engraved in Pavers and permanently laid in a path in the precinct of the Glenorie Memorial Hall.

The Glenorie Hall was built in 1932 after the original sandstone Hall began eroding. It was then constructed from brick with a metal roof.

It was built by the Community, for the Community, with funds from the sale of the sandstone from the original School of Arts that stood on that site, along with the original Glenorie Public School started in 1888. The Memorial Hall has been used for concerts, movies (called The Pictures then), dances, public meetings plus many other varied activities.

The Hall was built to commemorate the local men who died in WWI. As the Hall is located on the eastern side of Old Northern Road, the veterans listed on the original Honour Board and on the present-day cenotaph plinths were either born, lived or attended schools in either Shire. So now that it is in Hornsby Council hands, the planned upgrade will include a path built from pavers from the community so…

What better way to honour the service of your war hero, family member or mate. We now have the opportunity to add the names of past and present veterans.
