Toolondo residents celebrate 25-year reunion| Photos

PAST and present Toolondo residents gathered at the weekend to celebrate the past 25 years.

More than 100 people travelled from as far as Berlin in Germany to join in the festivities at Toolondo Recreation Reserve.

Ladies committee president Carmel Officer described the event as wonderful.

She said five guest speakers were a highlight of the event.

The speakers told about their times and their families’ experiences in Toolondo.

Mrs Officer said the group planted a tree and buried a time capsule, to be sealed this week and opened in 2038.

She said a time capsule buried in 1988 was opened but much of its contents were damaged by condensation.

Memorabilia displays, a ecumenical church service and sports were also features of the reunion.

Mrs Officer declared the weekend a success.

“It’s been a wonderful community effort,’’ she said.

“It’s been a fabulous weekend with lots of laughter and good catch-ups.’’
