Af­ter­noon tea makes 95th birth­day a de­light

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

It is nec­es­sary to reg­is­ter at www. be­nal­la­geol­ to at­tend the con­fer­ence but at­ten­dance just for Mon­day is an op­tion.

Wed­nes­day lec­tures will be more tech­ni­cal and a show­case of lead­ing gran­ite re­search world­wide.

Field trips are planned for Tues­day and Thurs­day, and lec­tures go be­yond gran­ite on Fri­day-Satur­day.

In late 2016 we will be start­ing to make de­ci­sions about the field trip itin­er­ar­ies for the Be­nalla Gran­ite Sym­po­sium.

RES­I­DENTS and staff at Cur­rie Park, in Weir Street Euroa, re­cently helped Eileen An­der­son, a res­i­dent of more than 20 years, cel­e­brate her 95th birth­day, with an af­ter­noon tea party.

Eileen spent her child­hood in Euroa and has many happy mem­o­ries of her time as a school­girl and young adult, dur­ing which she made many life­long friends.

Most of her adult life was spent in Mel­bourne, where she mar­ried and raised her fam­ily while at the same time work­ing, un­til she was re­tired from the work­force at the great age of 70 years.

It was at this time that Eileen de­cided to re­turn to her much-loved Euroa and re­new the girl­hood friend­ships she had made and re­tained dur­ing her ab­sence.

Eileen keeps good health, and her mem­ory of mat­ters re­lat­ing to the Rich­mond Foot­ball Club is to be en­vied.

A one-eyed fan all her life, Eileen never misses a broad­cast of any game which in­volves her beloved Tigers and her sit­ting-room at Cur­rie Park is well stocked with Tiger sou­venirs.

We all wish Eileen many more years of good health and hope to cel­e­brate her 100th birth­day in 2021.

PARTY TIME: Eileen An­der­son cel­e­brated her 95th birth­day last week sur­rounded by friends at Cur­rie Park.
