Almost a century after it was built and opened, Brogo Hall holds many fond memories for the Johnston family.
Alfred Johnston donated a portion of his land to the Brogo community so that the hall, which opened in 1929, could be built.
On November 23, five generations of the Johnston family came together to mount a plaque dedicated to Alfred, in recognition to his generous donation.
It was Alfred's granddaughter Sue who decided to approach the Brogo Hall Committee to ask if a plaque could be made, detailing her grandfather's donation.
"I thought a lot of people these days didn't know the land had been donated. And I thought it'd be nice for the family and the locals to have the plaque and be reminded," Sue said.
Alfred's daughter Aileen said she had many fond memories of the hall, be it the dances it used to host or the Christmas celebrations with the big tree, kids activities and baked goods the locals brought along.
Aileen said she also remembered the times where, back in the early days, people travelled from across the Bega Valley by horse to visit.
"They used to come from way up past Narooma and some wouldn't start the dancing until 10pm,"
"Because they had to milk and everything before and they'd dance until three or four in the morning and then go home to milk," she said.
Sue said she felt pleased with how the plaque looked and felt immensely happy to put it up on the wall surrounded by her family.
Brogo Hall committee member Sharon Pearce, who shares her own personal ties to Brogo Hall, said there were many people who had a part to play, but that it all started with Alfred's donation.
"I'm not even family but it just felt so good to get it made and put up there," Ms Pearce said.
"A lot of people contributed to getting it running and a lot of people worked together to get this hall built, so it's great to start recognising the people involved."
