28 October 2021

A civic event for 130 people who have lived in Kwinana for more than 50 years.

Giant games were laid out in the patio area along with cosy places to sit and listen to entertainment trio BLING.

Guests participated in a quiz on local history and Australian general knowledge before Mayor Carol Adams encouraged Kwinana’s pioneers in her welcoming address to share their local stories.

“Kwinana is spoilt with a rich history and local history has become a centerpiece of the City’s work this year,” Mayor Adams said.

“The library has the ability to scan original photos, accept donated memorabilia and is interested in recording oral history interviews of people of all backgrounds not just people of note,” Mayor Carol Adams said.

The Free Range Kids: Growing Up in Kwinana in the 50’s and 60’s Exhibition was available for viewing in the foyer where pioneers were also encouraged to join the Kwinana Heritage Group before leaving with a gift from local tea supplier High Tea with Harriet.
