Hook, line and sinker

HAVE you got your rods ready for the Saratoga Clas­sic next week­end?

Many fishing ex­perts will mix it with the lo­cals for great prizes in this an­nual comp on Septem­ber 8-9.

Get there early to nom­i­nate and cruise up the river or fish on the bank.

Any kind of fish small or large wins a prize.

Sup­port your lo­cal fishing club and join Rob­bie, Sharon and lo­cals at the bar ca­pa­bly run by Mark Mac.

En­joy a burger from the P&C food stall and sup­port your lo­cal school.

The P&C has been run­ning the food for 15 years, so lend a hand and make light work of it.

Fun games for the kids will be played be­fore the pre­sen­ta­tions on Sun­day with prizes on of­fer.

Pink vin­tage night

THIS event will be held at the His­tor­i­cal Vil­lage on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15.

The event will start about 3pm with af­ter­noon tea and a tour of the vil­lage a high­light.

There will be a wear­able art fash­ion pa­rade then din­ner will be served in true coun­try style. Please wear your “vin­tage” gar­ment.

All pro­ceeds will go to women’s can­cer re­search.

There are plenty of great prizes to be won. Would love to have you join us.

Con­grat­u­la­tions

LOVELY news reached us last week of the en­gage­ment of Casey Dahl and Ed Mc­cam­ley.

Casey is the only daugh­ter of Karen and Des Dahl while Ed hails from Dingo. Also happy 60th goes to dad Des.

A gath­er­ing of fam­ily and friends en­joyed a game of golf and a ses­sion at the ho­tel to help cel­e­brate Des’s birth­day.

Con­grat­u­la­tions all round.

Bar­gains galore

THE aged care sec­ond hand shop is over­stocked so a mas­sive sale is hap­pen­ing.

To­mor­row and next Satur­day, Septem­ber 8 you can stock up on bar­gains.

Eli­nor and the ladies have a great ar­ray of cloth­ing, linen, cur­tains and books for sale. The “guide hut” 2nd shop is lo­cated be­hind the RSL hall.

If you are a new­comer go along and grab a bar­gin. Stock is cheap, cheap, cheap.

RSL hall makeover

DID you notice our com­mu­nity is un­der­go­ing a makeover?

The RSL hall is be­ing painted in­side af­ter many years of the same cream.

The progress as­so­ci­a­tion is go­ing for a fresh new colour so the hall will look its best for our 100-year re­union.

Coun­cil work­ers have been clean­ing up in prepa­ra­tion for this his­toric event. Give your own yards a tidy so our town will look spec­tac­u­lar for this huge event.

100-year re­union

HAVE you reg­is­tered at the post of­fice for the Bar­al­aba School 100-year re­union?

Yes that would be great if lo­cals re­ply and fill out the short form so or­gan­is­ers get an idea about who is com­ing.

Is any­one you know need­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion?

Please let me know and I can as­sist you with this.

There are still spots at the show­grounds for car­a­vans or tents, reg­is­ter on their Face­book page.
