100 years ago this week, on January 23 1914 the Yallock Methodist Sunday School held their picnic on the Yallock Creek. Mr Reiter provided music from his dulciphone - which I believe is a sort of gramophone and there was a freezer containing ice cream - no doubt appreciated as the heat was rather severe.

Yallock Methodist Church being moved to Koo-Wee-Rup, 1932
The Methodist Home Mission Station was opened in Yallock in 1907, with the hall being used for services. The Yallock Methodist Church was opened in 1909, built by Thomas Pretty. In August 1932, it was moved from Yallock to Koo-Wee-Rup, to the site of the Uniting Church. When they built their existing building the old Church was moved again to a Christian Camp at Grantville.
