Vera Hinchliffe’s uncle Dennis Mullen will be one of the lives celebrated as part of an exhibition called Remembering Our ANZACs, to be held over November 11–17 at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club.

Under the direction of local ceramic artist Deborah Gower, pictured right, the exhibition of artworks is inspired by the memorabilia of descendants and relatives of Mullumbimby soldiers who fought in the first World War.
