Work­shop for our Won­der­ful Women

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - From FIN­LEY Anne Free­stone

Fin­ley Pub­lic School’s P&C would like to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to all women in the lo­cal area to at­tend a Wild Wacky Won­der­ful Women work­shop.

It will be held at the Fin­ley RS Club on Fri­day, Au­gust 25 from 9.30am un­til 3.30pm.

If you book be­fore Au­gust 18, your ticket will only by $50, or $60 at the door.

Women are en­cour­aged to at­tend as this is not only a fundraiser for the school but for what this day can do for those at­tend­ing.

Wild Wacky Won­der­ful Women is about em­pow­er­ing and cre­at­ing pos­i­tive change for women.

The vi­sion is a world where women are em­pow­ered to live au­then­tic lives, to be­come more vis­i­ble, to have a louder voice and to con­trib­ute to solv­ing prob­lems and chal­lenges of the world that re­ally mat­ter and to sup­port and en­cour­age each other while do­ing so.

The main theme of the work­shop is to sim­plify life, to gain the courage to con­quer the clut­ter that is hold­ing some women back.

Morn­ing tea and lunch will be pro­vided and an in­di­ca­tion of in­ten­tion to at­tend would be ap­pre­ci­ated by Au­gust 18 to as­sist with cater­ing.

Please con­tact So­phie In­gram on 0427 811 409.

Book­ings are now open for the an­nual two day bus trip in sup­port of Fin­ley Re­gional Care, which will take place over the week­end of Novem­ber 11 and 12.

The tour will be vis­it­ing spring­time gar­dens at Bur­rum­but­tock, Mitta Mitta and Beech­worth with overnight ac­com­mo­da­tion in Al­bury on the Satur­day night.

This is a great op­por­tu­nity to find new ideas for your gar­den or just to en­joy the so­cial week­end away while sup­port­ing this ma­jor fundraiser for Fin­ley Re­gional Care.

Fur­ther de­tails and pric­ing price can be ob­tained by con­tact­ing Mary Beat­tie on 0400 320 973.

A de­posit of $70 is re­quired to se­cure a book­ing.

This is al­ways a pop­u­lar week­end so those in­ter­ested are ad­vised to make a book­ing as soon as pos­si­ble.

Book­ings can still be made at Murray Hut Cloth­ing for the Bi­ralee Preschool Danc­ing With The Stars, to be held at the Fin­ley RS Club on Au­gust 12.

Tick­ets are $65 which in­cludes cham­pagne on ar­rival, nib­bles and a two course meal.

And don’t for­get, vot­ing for the view­ers’ choice award can be made at the Fin­ley Newsagency.

Much hard work and time has been contributed by the five cou­ples con­test­ing this event and they would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate sup­port from the com­mu­nity — $1 equals one viewer vote.

Dance in­struc­tor Vicki Ack­ers is ac­com­plish­ing some re­mark­able re­sults with the par­tic­i­pants and it is amaz­ing the lo­cal talent we have in our lo­cal area.

Fin­ley Lions Club would like to ad­vise that San­dra Emery was the lucky win­ner of Satur­day’s wood raf­fle.

As this raf­fle is only con­ducted through the win­ter months, many are tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to win a lit­tle warmth.

Many re­mark­able things hap­pen in our Ber­ri­gan Shire Li­braries and one event not to be missed is an evening with the au­thor of the book The Cof­fee Palace, Adele Ogier Jones.

Tues­day, Au­gust 15 marks 121 years since the open­ing of the Ber­ri­gan Cof­fee Palace, an in­sti­tute many may not have even been aware ex­isted in the early days.

The pro­gram for the evening of Au­gust 15 will be­gin at 6pm and con­clude at 8pm.

Soup and sand­wiches will be served on ar­rival and those at­tend­ing will have a chance to chat with Adele over cof­fee and cake fol­low­ing her talk.

Tick­ets are at a cost of $15 per per­son and are avail­able at all lo­cal Ber­ri­gan Shire Li­braries.

Re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided by the Timor-Leste Ex­pe­ri­ence 2018 stu­dents who are rais­ing funds to take much needed med­i­cal sup­plies to this com­mu­nity.

So all res­i­dents in the lo­cal Shire are en­cour­aged to at­tend what prom­ises to be a very in­ter­est­ing evening and much needed sup­port for our young stu­dents.

For those un­able to at­tend who would like to know more about the Ber­ri­gan Cof­fee Palace, there is a raf­fle be­ing con­ducted for a copy of the book and tick­ets of $2 each are also avail­able at the li­braries.

The an­nual com­pe­ti­tion for Wrap-with­Love woollen squares is com­ing to a close with the cut-off date for square col­lec­tion be­ing Au­gust 1 and 2.

Ber­ri­gan and Tocumwal will ac­cept squares un­til Tues­day, Au­gust 1, with Fin­ley and Ba­rooga’s last day be­ing Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 2.

Morn­ing tea will be ar­ranged at a time and date to be ad­vised and the win­ner of the Liz McLau­rin Rose Bowl will be an­nounced.

All li­braries in the shire would like to thank the many gen­er­ous knit­ters for the con­tin­u­ing sup­port of this very wor­thy cause.

The Angli­can Church Par­ish of Tocumwal, Fin­ley and Jer­ilderie is host­ing a spe­cial event this Sun­day in Jer­ilderie at 11am, and an in­vi­ta­tion is ex­tended to ev­ery­one to at­tend.

Rev­erend David Sloan will be the guest speaker and a ‘bring and share’ lunch will be held in the hall fol­low­ing the ser­vice.

David is an ex­cel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tor about the things God pro­vides to help us through life, and he is look­ing for­ward to meet­ing with and talk­ing to as many lo­cal com­mu­nity mem­bers as pos­si­ble.

Be­cause of this spe­cial event, there will be no ser­vices this Sun­day at Tocumwal and Fin­ley.

Rev Stephen apol­o­gises for any in­con­ve­nience.

The Fin­ley Angli­can Ladies Guild is an­tic­i­pat­ing lots of fun and laugh­ter at the bee­tles af­ter­noon planned for Thurs­day Au­gust 10.

It will be held from 2pm in the Angli­can Church hall.
