Lemnos Gallipoli Photographic Exhibition - Eltham Library in August 2016

Our Lemnos Gallipoli Photographic Exhibition will next be exhibition at Eltham Library and Eltham Library Community Gallery in August later this year. This follows on from our recent display at Alphington Grammar and will complement our commemorative service at the Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial planned for August.
We have been invited by the City of Whittlesea to exhibit our photographic display and have just finalized arrangements.
The exhibition will run from Thursday 4th august until Monday 29th August. The exhibition will be part of a WW1 exhibition including exhibits from the State Library of Victoria, called "Writing and the War". This consists of banners, a TV unit and display cases. There will also be memorabilia from local community groups on display. The Eltham Library is located at Panther Place, Eltham.
For more information on the State Library exhibition component, please click here.
A program of speakers is scheduled to accompany the exhibition.
I have accepted an invitation to speak as part of this program. I will be making a presentation on The Anzacs at Lemnos.The presentation will take place at 7pm, Tuesday16th August 2016.
Thanks to Cr Mary Lalios for seeking out participation in this great program at Eltham and to providing our Committee with another opportunity to spread awareness of the Lemnos link to Anzac.
