Back to the 1950s at Corrimal

DO you remember the 1950s? If you are fascinated by the fashion, the music and the films from this wonderful decade, then make sure you get along to Corrimal Library’s Open Day on Thursday October 22 from 9.30am.
There will be a morning tea and talk on Corrimal’s rich history from 10.30am. At 11am there’s a special fancy dress story time with face painting.
From 2pm there will be a display of rock ‘n’ roll dancers. From 5pm you can sing along with Danny and Sandy in the 1978 movie, Grease.
Manager Library and Community Services Jenny Thompson said: “The 1950s saw changes to our society and popular culture which have had a lasting impact right through to today. We’re inviting the Corrimal community to celebrate the decade that saw both the birth of television and the opening of Corrimal Library, by joining us at the Open Day on Thursday 22 October.”
