Two events to wel­come spring

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Anne Jones

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.

On Septem­ber 21, mem­bers from the Angli­can, Pres­by­te­rian, Pen­te­costal and Unit­ing churches from Ber­ri­gan Shire, came to­gether for a ‘bring and share’ din­ner at the Angli­can Church in Tocumwal.

The din­ner was the first gath­er­ing of its type, with many more planned. The next bring and share din­ner will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 25 at 6pm.

For more, con­tact Rev Stephen Davis on 5883 1262, Clive March on 5874 2062 or June Batty on 5874 2389.

Tocumwal’s St Peter’s Par­ish says good­bye to Fr Martin this Satur­day even­ing af­ter 5.30pm Mass.

Start­ing about 6.30pm, all mem­bers of the wider com­mu­nity who have been touched by Fr Martin’s kind­ness and un­der­stand­ing are wel­come to at­tend.

For cater­ing pur­poses, please ring Aileen Phe­lan on 5874 3525 as soon as pos­si­ble.

The meal is free, but please bring your owns drinks and glasses.

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 johnanne44@big­pond.com.

Dy­lan, Harry and Josh Hen­der­son at the li­brary.
