Two events to welcome spring
Tocumwal Soroptimist Club is having a spring luncheon at the Tocumwal Golf and Bowls Club on October 26. To welcome the warm weather, ladies are asked to dress in their seasonal best.
There will be prizes for the lady of the day and the best spring hat.
Tickets must be booked and paid for at the Tocumwal Antiques and Tearooms prior to the event. No tickets will be sold at the club.
The Soroptimists will continue their efforts into November by running a Shabby Chic Art Show at the Tocumwal War Memorial Hall on November 4 and 5.
This is an art show with a difference and anyone who has an original artwork which they wish to sell may participate.
Lynne George already has some lovely watercolours in her care, which will be hung on that weekend and will be for sale during the show.
As an introductory offer, this will be a no commission sale for this year only.
For more about this interesting activity, contact Lynne George at Tocumwal Antiques and Tearooms.

Tocumwal Library was the scene for some very inventive young people who turned trash into treasures over the school holidays. Empty drink bottles and an old chopstick became nifty bird feeders. The next library vacation program will be in 2018.
All the schools are back at work this week after the two week break, and the Tocumwal Public School will be staging their musical production tomorrow evening at the Tocumwal War Memorial Hall.
It’s good to see our hall being used, the new curtains getting a work out. And seeing the kids having fun.
Remember the Probus meeting tomorrow at 10am at the footy club pavilion.
The Tocumwal Hospital Auxilliary is holding a games day on Wednesday, October 25.
This is always a fun day and very good value for your money. $20 gets you a home baked morning tea, lunch and even an afternoon tea with free continuous raffle tickets thrown in.
All money raised by the auxilliary will assist the purchase of new equipment for the comfort and care of local patients.
Bring along your favourite games. Start is at 10.30am, with that famous morning tea the auxilliary ladies do so well.
Items for ‘Toc Tells’ may be submitted by phoning 5874 3424, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
