Mt Glorious Centenary Celebrations
On 10 October 2009 a community picnic was held
at Camp Constable to mark the centenary of
the erection of the first European house at Mt Glorious on what is now
(2013) Rooklyn Farm in Mt Glorious Village.
Dobson Family: Mrs Dorothy
Dobson, daughter of Mr and Mrs Charles Patrick, who were friends of
Thomas Lindsay, and who lived in Lindsay’s house. Dorothy, who was in
her 90s when this photograph was taken (2009), is their youngest child.
With her are her son, Graham Dobson senior, and her grandson and his
wife, Graham junior and Liane Dobson.
Peter and June
Gibbons: Peter Gibbons’ father established Clover Lea Farm. The
present (2013) Mt Glorious Café and Restaurant was the
farmhouse. Peter and June Gibbons later ran the farm themselves.
Peter Gibbons and
Oskar and Meg
Ceccato, children of Phil and Lilly Ceccato, of Mt Glorious, unveiled
the memorial plaque. Ann O’Connor supervised the unveiling. The plaque
has been erected outside Rooklyn Farm.
