Events marking the centenary of the historic Acton Park Hall will include the opening of a 50-year-old time capsule.

The capsule was sealed in 1975 and will be opened shortly before the event begins

The contents of the capsule will be displayed as part of the centenary celebrations on January 7.

A new capsule marking the centenary and including photos of the celebrations will be interred in a secret location.

Busselton Mayor Phil Cronin will unveil a commemorative plaque as part of the event.

The 100-year-old community hall is self-managed, financially independent and serves as a destination for the local playgroup sessions, mobile observatory stargazing events, and as a venue for the veteran car club.

The annual Christmas tree event is also a popular tradition at the hall and was attended by about 50 children last year.

In addition to the many social functions, the hall is also used as a polling venue for local voters on election days,

The centenary celebrations, which will include vintage car displays, children’s games and afternoon teas, will run from 1-5pm on January 7.
