The Coo-ee March Reenactment commences tomorrow Saturday 17 October. It is a memorial to the 263 men who answered the call of “Coo-ee! Come and join us!”, and fell into line in towns and villages along the way of the recruitment march from Gilgandra to Sydney in 1915.
For more information on the reenactment, please visit their website and follow their itinerary: http://cooeemarch1915.com/
They will leave Springwood and reach Emu Plains on the morning of 7 November 2015, and will stop for refreshments at the Old Emu Plains Public School on the Great Western Highway, as they did 100 years ago. Come and say hello! The old school house is now home to the Nepean Family History Society.
