Record Woody luncheon
The Woody Motors Cancer Council Luncheon held last Friday was a great success with a new record of $5,500 being raised.
There were 170 meals served and 15 happy raffle prize winners left with a big smile.
A big thank you to everyone who helped in any way with raffle donations, cooking and helping set up the room, and also to the workers in the kitchen and most importantly the community for supporting the day.
Saturday, June 17 is the Berrigan Footballers Ball held at the clubrooms starting at 7pm.
The theme for the evening is Roaring Twenties and a great night is expected.
Today is the last day of Rotary Bowel Scan month. Kits are $15 and available from the chemist.
The United Hospital Auxiliaries held its May meeting on Monday last week.
After general business was discussed, members were treated to a talk from enrolled nurse Jinish about India and traditions surrounding marriage in this country.
Jinish and his wife have their first baby due in six weeks and they have family coming to Australia for this special time.
When finished his talk, Jinish was presented with a small gift from the UHA.
Awards were then presented by special guest Chris Ellis to the members with many years of service.
Ten year badges went to Betty Burwood, Leslie Fankhauser, Marine Dalgleish, Rene Graham and Marine Steer.
A 25 year certificate was awarded to Jill Edwards, a 30 year badge went to Marjorie Atkinson, and 50 years of service to UHA president Marion Dickens.
Following this was a lovely afternoon tea.
The next meeting is June 26 at 2pm at the Madill Centre. Everyone is welcome.
The UHA street stall on Thursday raised $543 and the winner of the trailer load of wood was Clare Harvey.
The UHA would like to thank the Lions Club for the donation of the wood, and a special thanks to Joe and Steve for the supply of bread and sausages and the IGA venue. Thank you also to the people of Berrigan for once again supporting the Hospital Auxiliary.
