ALMOST 80 people attended the official unveiling of the Euroa Community Conference and Function Centre (ECCFC) at the memorial oval last week.

The ECCFC, more commonly known as the George Hunter Rooms, is now open to the public, who can attend functions, meetings and conferences at the renovated facility.

Minister for Regional Development and Agriculture Jaala Pulford unveiled a plaque commemorating the occasion, along with Strathbogie Shire mayor Deb Swan, chief executive officer Steve Crawcour as well as Euroa Memorial Oval Committee of Management (EMOCM) members Bernie O’Dea and Laurie O’Brien.

Local tradespeople involved in the construction of the rooms were also in attendance, which included contracted builders Harper and Morphet.

Football/cricket legends Les Reed and Ray McLaine were also in attendance, as were members of the Euroa Football Netball Club and Euroa Cricket Club and former Benalla MP Bill Sykes, who announced State Government funding last year.

Mr O’Dea thanked all for their attendance, adding many had contributed to the building over a number of years and the committee finally had a great structure for the community to enjoy.
