ON TUESDAY night the local Mountain Turkey’s netball team played in the netball semi-finals at Biloela.
The team made up of Baralaba and Wowan ladies played some competitive netball during the season, but went down by four goals in Tuesday night’s game.
They look forward to next year’s season.
LAST Friday the Wowan/Dululu MPC celebrated Senior’s Week with a “Show ’n Tell” function at the Wowan RSL Hall.
A lovely morning outing was held and thank you to Arthur Osborne, Neville Ferrier, Henry Gent and Dot Nutley from the Wowan Museum for bringing along their items for the displays.
Thank you to Arthur for his presentation on his display and to Greg Rothery for his insight and poetry from the railway era and to John Litschner for the insight and history into the processes of the old and the new of the dairy industry.
Thank you to everyone for their support and to celebrate our Senior’s Week.

THE rain dampened the golf on Sunday at Calliope bringing some members’ golf to an early close for the day.
Some Wowan members travelled to Calliope for their men’s golf championships and a deluge of rain fell while playing the open golf championships.
It was just a pity that the rain never fell on the Wowan course. This Sunday there will be a club competition. Draw time 12.30pm.
HAPPY birthday wishes are extended to Matthew Moretti, Bob Saunders, Terry Vickers, Steven Raine and celebrating their wedding anniversary is John and Ros Gunzler.
Have a great day everyone.
SOME rain gauges varied over the weekend.
Some places received good rain, but falls were disappointing in most areas.
WITH Sunday being Father’s Day, I would like to wish all the dad, granddads and great granddads a very happy Father’s Day.
I trust you are able to spend the day with your family and loved ones on one of your special days of the year, although I always say, its Father’s Day every day.
