A request from one of the 'old boys' to reminisce with others from his time in the Home is the nucleus to the planning of this reunion. Many have moved far and wide and we want to cast the net Australia-wide. There will be one more 'Old Boys' Day' for the Old Boys of any era (and their families) to reconnect.
The purpose-built Kennion House in Smith Street Walkerville opened its doors in 1926 and was 'home' to boys for a further 60 years before it closed in 1984. We hope to have it open one more time.
More details will be given on application: Bookings essential for catering purposes - enquiries and bookings : Lyn O'Grady 088269 5982 - "Old Boys' Reunion" Walkerville Historical Society PO Box 54 Walkerville 5081.
