In 2018 it will be 150 years since the closer settlement of Phillip Island in 1868.  Lots of organisations across Phillip Island are holding celebratory events to mark the occasion.  FOCIS is holding an “Old Fashioned Picnic” on Sunday 18 March 2018, from 11 am until 3 pm.

Some of the activities at the picnic will be: bocce, skittles, quoits, rice bag throw in the morning.

Bring your picnic rug or chairs and enjoy a picnic on the lawns.

More old fashioned games that don’t need computers after lunch.

Dress up in 19th century costume for the parade to end the day.

Churchill Island has some ladies costumes available for loan.  Contact the curator, Christine Grayden, m 0400 900 612 to book a time to choose your costume.  Or just scout around the opportunity shops and make up your own!  Kids can dress up too!

Lots of old-fashioned fun for everyone.  We may even have a folk song sing-along!  Mark the date in your diaries.  We look forward to seeing lots of you there.
