AN Images and Old Yarn event this month will feature an old-fashioned slide-and-movie show, historical images from across the municipality, live performances by a brass band, afternoon tea, and talks by Frankston Citizen of the Year and Frankston Historical Society president Glenda Viner.

The event, from 1-3pm, Saturday 18 July, at Frankston Mechanics’ Institute, is being put on by deputy mayor Cr Glenn Aitken and Frankston Historical Assets Committee.

It will show archival photography and film featuring footage from the turn of last century up until the 1980s World Bowls event, as well as footage from Frankston Historical Society, Kananook Creek Association and the library. These films will showcase Frankston’s rich and colourful history and be set to a musical score.

The event will be an opportunity for community members to share stories and reminisce while local identities speak about the city’s colourful history.  All welcome.

A gold coin donation is requested. To RSVP, call 9784 1829.

The Mechanic’s Institute is on the corner of Plowman Place and Nepean Hwy.
