Mu­ral project be­gins this Sun­day

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Four lo­cal artists may not be paint­ing the town red this week­end, but they will be work­ing on a mu­ral, weather per­mit­ting, in the town cen­tre.

Ros Lock­hart, Tianni Given, He­lene Mort­lock and Sos Hawkins will bring to fruition on Sun­day a project that has been in the pipe­line for many months.

The mu­ral is sup­ported by the Mur­ray Lo­cal Land Ser­vices through the Bil­l­abong Yanco Project, with fund­ing from the Aus­tralian Na­tional Land­care Pro­gramme.

Fund­ing was sought by Jer­ilderie Lions Club to con­tract four lo­cal artists to col­lab­o­rate, de­sign and paint the mu­ral, which will ap­pear on the east-fac­ing wall of the Jer­ilderie Bak­ery.

The sub­ject will be re­vealed on the day of ex­e­cu­tion.

We look for­ward to cle­ment weather on Sun­day, and the chance to have our own lo­cally pro­duced mas­ter­piece in the cen­tre of town!

The Town Garage Sale this Satur­day is to raise money for the Fin­ley High School stu­dents who will travel to Ti­mor in 2018. Take a trip around the town, look for the sale signs, and maybe pick up a bar­gain.

The Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary street stall is on this Fri­day from 8.30am. Your sup­port will be ap­pre­ci­ated, ei­ther with bak­ing, pro­duce, or buy­ing.

A goods and ser­vices auc­tion is to be held at the Coleam­bally Club on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 7, to raise money for a wheel­chair and car con­ver­sion for Re­becca Col­lie, who was paral­ysed from the waist down in a quad bike ac­ci­dent on her father’s Coleam­bally prop­erty in April.

Max Col­lie worked for Jer­ilderie Shire Coun­cil some years ago.

Re­becca was home on hol­i­days and help­ing do sheep work when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened.
