History Monash Inc presents a new exhibition: The Oakleigh-Carnegie Memorial Hall Centenary, open on Tuesdays from 3 May 2022.
This exhibition depicts the inception, design and building of the Memorial Hall in Drummond Street, largely due to the efforts of the local community to honour those who served in World War I. The Memorial Hall was opened in April 1922 by Maj. General H. E. “Pompey” Elliott. Since then the Memorial Hall has provided a meeting place for veterans and a hub for efforts to support them. The work of the Oakleigh-Carnegie sub-branch, and the military service of some of Oakleigh’s returned service people, are also depicted in the exhibition.
Free entry to the exhibition, at the Monash Federation Centre, 3 Atherton Road Oakleigh, is via the glass doors overlooking Warrawee Park.

This centenary exhibition was supported by the Victorian Government and the Victorian Veterans’ Council.
