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.

With her are her son, Graham Dobson senior, and her grandson and his wife, Graham junior and Liane Dobson.
