Beryl wins club championship
Congratulations to Beryl Murray who is Mathoura Bowling Club’s Ladies Singles Champion for 2016.
She defeated Pam Limbrick 25 to 23 to claim the championship in a game which saw Pam lead until the 26th end.
It is Beryl’s third title, secured with a four on the final end.
There were unusual sounds around Mathoura on Saturday night, especially when they came from a vehicle renowned for its involvement in emergencies.
Mathoura Fire Brigade played its traditional role as chauffeur to Santa providing Christmas cheer — and a bag of lollies to local and visiting youngsters.
They travelled back and forth from street to street, and then off to Picnic Point, providing lots of joy.
Full marks to the brigade for continuing this fun event.
A welcome is extended to the new faces at the Pastoral Hotel.
Graham and Lyn McCarthy are currently in a ‘caretaker’ position and hope to take over completely in about five weeks.
Lyn is a chef, having worked in hotel, club and bistro environments as well as head chef at a 50s and over Lifestyle Resort.
Graham’s experience includes work with federal departments and senior management positions in the airport and airline industry, as well as service with Victoria Police.
They will be assisted by Graham’s brother ‘Macka’ and his wife, Kerry.
It is hoped the McCarthys settle well into our community.
It seems ‘our’ Faith’s condition is con- tinuing to improve with small steps adding up.
There are reports of standing alone, and being treated to icecream.
I believe she also took the time to make a Face Time call to make Christmas brighter for friends facing it for the first time without a loved one.
It is to be hoped that a call will not be the only thing coming home in the not too distant future.
God bless you Faith!
