Assistant school teacher left her mark on Goovigen
IT IS WITH great sadness we learned of the passing of Murrie Whaites (Stone).
Murrie came to Goovigen as an assistant school teacher where she met and married Colin Stone.
They successfully established and ran the local hardware store for many years..
Murrie was very involved with fundraising for the local communities, she especially loved the Miss Banana Shire Ball and raising money for the Community Hall.
Murrie and Colin raised five children who all received their primary schooling at Goovigen.
Later on in life Murrie retired to the Sunshine Coast area.
Our sincere sympathy to all the family.
GOOVIGEN Progress Association held its morning tea at Goovigen Historical Society last Thursday.
A good number of residents and visitors turned up to have a look at the history surrounding Goovigen.
A yummy morning tea was enjoyed by all. Well done to a fantastic and motivated group of people.
The next Coffee Group Morning tea will be held in the community hall on August 24 at 9.30am.
Come or a chat, a game of cards or try brain teasers.
