Bar­al­aba School Cen­te­nary

THE meet­ing to dis­cuss the 100th an­niver­sary of our school was held last week. The date for the big event is Oc­to­ber 13-14, 2018. So mark your cal­en­dars and start round­ing up your class­mates from years gone by.

I will keep you posted with up­dates, also the school’s web­site will have in­for­ma­tion about this event.

Saratoga fish­ing clas­sic

THIS year saw fish­ing num­bers down (182 in to­tal) but good fish to­tals caught. Pres­i­dent Rob Price was happy with the sup­port and fish could be seen in the clearer wa­ter up­stream. Again, the Bar­al­aba P&C ran the food very ca­pa­bly over the week­end while Mark McLel­lan ran the bar as per usual. Robyn Gill ran the cent sale and was well sup­ported.

Just Us played great live mu­sic with danc­ing pop­u­lar, good on you Tim and Deb. Su­perb weather, plenty of wa­ter and good com­pany saw the week­end come off with­out a hitch. Thank you to all the donors, helpers and sup­port­ers to make the week­end a suc­cess. All funds raised go to re­stock­ing fin­ger­lings in the Daw­son River.
