Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Jer­ilderie’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea on Thurs­day was another great suc­cess, with 47 peo­ple at­tend­ing at the li­brary.

The lo­cal busi­ness houses kept the vol­un­teers busy in the morn­ing, with 125 or­ders placed for sweet treats, rais­ing $770.

The con­tin­u­ous raf­fle of­fered 111 op­por­tu­ni­ties to win prizes, and raised $352.

The raf­fle of a blan­ket cre­ated by Catie Purtell raised $578 and was won by Chrissy El­lis; a doll made by Mar­jie Honey­man raised $128, and was won by Kathy Noack, and Dawn McGrillen won the lucky door prize. Do­na­tions at the door amounted to $576.

Bri­anna Car­racher, the com­mu­ni­ca­tions and events co-or­di­na­tor for Can­cer Coun­cil West­ern NSW, vis­ited from Wagga and spoke about how the money raised will be used.

The to­tal amount raised was over $2,400, which was a great re­sult for all those who worked so hard for a good cause.

Thanks have been ex­pressed to ev­ery­one who donated goods to raf­fle, and food to eat, and the many vol­un­teers who helped on the day.

Twelve mem­bers at­tended the Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary meet­ing on May 25 which dis­cussed the busi­ness of the day, in­clud­ing the pro­posed Char­ity Golf Day.

Mem­bers have vol­un­teered to be avail­able for the hos­pi­tal’s on-call days over the long week­end, to help with meals and com­pany for res­i­dents in the event of staff be­ing busy with emer­gency sit­u­a­tions.

No­tice was given of the AGM of the Aux­il­iary, which will be Au­gust 24.

The re­cent Com­bined Schools Ath­letic Car­ni­val held at Monash Park was a great suc­cess, thanks in no small part to the or­gan­i­sa­tional skills of Mrs Mar­shall (St Joseph’s School) and Mrs Brown­ing (Jer­ilderie Pub­lic).

Par­ents and com­mu­nity mem­bers also con­trib­uted to the great day by vol­un­teer­ing for var­i­ous jobs as­so­ci­ated with the car­ni­val.

Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School re­sults in­cluded Al­gudgerie House win­ning on the day.

Mi­nor cham­pi­ons were Zoe Bas­sett and Evan Law­ton, with run­ners-up Sama Sward and Jamie Winn. Ju­nior champs were Chelsea Winn and Dan Eldridge, with run­ners-up Jose­lyn Hurd and Tuki Parsons.

Eleven year cham­pi­ons were El­lie Simp- son and Ge­or­gia Lin­der Ma­son, with Joe Martin and Toby Hurd run­ners-up.

Se­nior cham­pi­ons were Lucy Simp­son and Cruz Nash, with Har­mony Patu and Travis Law­ton run­ners-up.

Win­ners for St Joseph’s were Lach­lan Wells (ju­nior boy) and Ge­or­gia Belling (jnr girl); Tex Flack (se­nior boy) and Amelia Wells (snr girl).

A num­ber of long-held records at St Joseph’s were bro­ken on the day.

Twenty St Joseph’s ath­letes have qual­i­fied for the Dean­ery Car­ni­val which will be held in Fin­ley on June 21.

More than 50 peo­ple at­tended the thank you din­ner or­gan­ised by the Pub­lic School P&C for Vic­to­ria Bryce and Rhonda Bryce, held re­cently at the Colony Inn Ho­tel.

Al­though un­able to at­tend, for­mer prin­ci­pal Brian Neth­ery sent an apol­ogy and a note of thanks to the re­tir­ing staff mem­bers.

Sev­eral speak­ers on the night also thanked Vic­to­ria and Rhonda for their many years of ser­vice to the school and com­mu­nity.

Older res­i­dents of Jer­ilderie would have noted the death no­tice in last week’s SRN of Vi­ola (Vi) Jones, a for­mer res­i­dent of Jer­ilderie.

Vi died at Coffs Har­bour on May 17 af­ter a short ill­ness, with a fu­neral ser­vice held on May 19. Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to her fam­ily.

Jer­ilderie Red Cross will be host­ing a Car Boot Sale this Sun­day at the home of Mary Catena, 101 Jer­ilderie St.

The day will run from 9am un­til 3pm, and there will be a sausage siz­zle and drinks avail­able. Peo­ple are in­vited to bring along their ‘Trash and Trea­sure’ on the day and pay $10 for a site. Ev­ery­one is most wel­come.
