Kyabram Free Press - - WEDNESDAY EXTRA -

40 years ago THE Rotary Club of Tatura has se­lected Wendy Ches­sells and Jill Brewer for stu­dent ex­change dur­ing 1978.

They will be ad­vised later of the host clubs to which they have been as­signed.

Wendy, who is the daugh­ter of Dhur­ringile farmer and ro­tar­ian Peter Ches­sells and his wife Betty, is one of a fam­ily of three — two girls and a boy.

She is 16 and a half years old, and is pur­su­ing sixth year stud­ies at Jack­son Col­lege, in Shep­par­ton.

She has un­der­taken a busi­ness course, and is keen to make a ca­reer in data pro­cess­ing and com­puter work.

Wendy, whose school sport­ing in­ter­est is hockey, is also a ten­nis player.

She was one of an at­trac­tive bevy of young ladies mak­ing their de­but ear­lier in the year at the Tatura Young Farm­ers Ball.

Jill, who cel­e­brated her 16th birth­day re­cently, at­tends Kyabram High School where she is study­ing at fifth year level. Also a farmer’s daugh­ter, she lives with her par­ents, Mr and Mrs A. L. Brewer, at Gir­garre East, and is the el­dest daugh­ter of a fam­ily of four girls and one boy.

Sub­jects cho­sen by Jill for her school pro­gram in­clude Com­mon Le­gal Stud­ies, English, Gen­eral Maths, An­thro­pol­ogy, Chem­istry and Bi­ol­ogy. She is a con­sci­en­tious stu­dent, but makes time to play ten­nis, par­tic­i­pate in the ac­tiv­i­ties of Ven­tur­ers, and en­joys photography as a hobby.

Jill would like to make nurs­ing her pro­fes­sion and at present thor­oughly en­joys a week­end job as an as­sis­tant at Stones Phar­macy in Kyabram.

20 years ago CHRIST­MAS is com­ing — but the lanterns are al­ready here.

Kyabram’s Lan­tern Man, Alan Edis, has ob­tained 600 packs of lanterns to be sold around the town for Un­cle Bob’s Club.

An ear­lier con­sign­ment has al­ready been dis­trib­uted.

The Ru­ral Mart has sold 10 packs in the first week, while the packs are also avail­able at Heard’s Cafe, Noel Thom­son’s Butcher, J S Brooke and Co, Kyabram Ser­vice Sta­tion and cafes in Mer­rigum, Stan­hope and Ton­gala.

Mr Edis said yes­ter­day a num­ber of in­di­vid­u­als had also of­fered to sell the lanterns, which cost $5 for 12 lanterns.

Pro­ceeds go to the Un­cle Bob’s Club, which helps sick and hand­i­capped chil­dren.

Mr Edis is mainly work­ing this year sell­ing lanterns in some streets which were not reached last year.
