At last Satur­day’s evening Mass at St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Jer­ilderie, the parish­ioners were joined by a for­mer res­i­dent, Shar­wyn Foote (nee Ste­wart).

Shar­wyn lived with her par­ents, Dave and Stella, and three sis­ters, El­iz­a­beth, Valda, and Gle­nis, at ‘Thur­rowa’ from 1956 to 1962.

Dave was man­ager of ‘Thur­rowa’ at that time, and the four girls were pupils at the Jer­ilderie Public School.

Shar­wyn, who now lives in Bal­ranald with her hus­band, was very in­ter­ested to learn there are plans to cel­e­brate 150 years of her old school in 2018, and will aim to get back for the oc­ca­sion.

Jer­ilderie Bare­foot Bowlers are tak­ing to the greens again, start­ing tonight at 6pm at the Sports Club.

This is a fam­ily night, so take the kids along and have some fun to­gether.

If you don’t know how to bowl there will be peo­ple on hand to show you the finer points of the game.

Bowls will be pro­vided for those who don’t have their own.

Ring Max Bryce on 0458 860 310 to book in, or turn up 10 min­utes be­fore start­ing time.

Bare feet or soft-soled shoes are re­quired.

Tidy Towns next meet­ing is to­mor­row night, Septem­ber 7, from 6pm to 7pm at the Luke Park of­fice. New mem­bers will be made most wel­come.

The Sir John Monash Ed­u­ca­tion bur­sary is once again be­ing of­fered to long term res­i­dents of Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil who are con­sid­er­ing en­ter­ing into post grad­u­ate ed­u­ca­tion.

An es­say should be sub­mit­ted by Fri­day, Novem­ber 10 based around a fa­mous quote by Sir John Monash — ‘‘De­pend upon it, the only hope for Aus­tralia is the bal­lot box and an ed­u­cated elec­torate’’.

The bur­sary is val­ued at $2,000 and is awarded to as­sist with per­sonal costs as­so­ci­ated with course ex­penses.

For full de­tails of re­quire­ment and con­di­tions, and the back­ground to the quote, go to coun­cil’s web­site www.mur­rumbidgee.nsw.gov.au.

The suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant will be an­nounced at the Sir John Monash Din­ner and Lec­ture, on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24.

The MAKATAK Fa­ther’s Day raf­fle was drawn last Fri­day. Prize win­ners were Steve Lock­hart, Paul Read and Rhi­an­non Roe.

Thanks to every­one who sup­ported the raf­fle.

To­mor­row, stu­dents from St Joseph’s K/1/2 will be walk­ing down to ‘Ye Olde Bank of NSW’ to learn about an­tiques from Roy and Beth.

This Fri­day, Jer­ilderie Public School will be hav­ing Footy Colours Day. A gold coin do­na­tion will go to­wards the Fight Cancer Foun­da­tion.

The en­tire Jer­ilderie Public School — stu­dents and staff — will be travelling to Mel­bourne to­day to at­tend a per­for­mance of Aladdin. We hope they en­joy this much an­tic­i­pated ex­cur­sion to­gether.

Kristy Spar­row, a for­mer lo­cal girl, and el­dest daugh­ter of Ma­ree and Bick­ley Thomas of Jer­ilderie, was re­cently awarded the ‘Ru­ral Com­mu­nity Leader of the Year’ by ABC Ru­ral, and the Kon­dinin Group.

Kristy lives with her hus­band and twin sons on a ru­ral prop­erty in Queens­land and was frus­trated with mo­bile broad­band data us­age when ed­u­cat­ing her sons via dis­tance ed­u­ca­tion.

With friend Kylie Stret­ton, she set up BIRRR – Bet­ter In­ter­net for Re­gional, Ru­ral and Re­mote Aus­tralia — to im­prove the com­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work.

Their small acorn has grown into a mighty oak, and they now have three other women on board help­ing to share the in­for­ma­tion, and giv­ing a voice to oth­ers in their sit­u­a­tion.
