Healthy turnout for Health Ser­vice fundraiser

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

The Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary nov­elty golf/bowls day on Sun­day at the Sports Club was a great suc­cess.

A beau­ti­ful day drew around 40 golfers and 20 bowlers, plus other sup­port­ers for this Health Ser­vice fundraiser.

The in­au­gu­ral win­ners of the Wil­lan­dra Per­pet­ual Cup were team ‘Lozza’ — Lau­rie Black­more, Faith Bryce, John Bryce and Richard Wright. Run­ners-up were Steve Dal­gliesh, Ian Tay­lor and James Gil­li­gan.

Ju­nior win­ners were Nick Bald­win, Jade Buck­ley and Har­ri­son Brad­ford.

Ian Tay­lor and Faith Bryce were the long­est drive win­ners. Jamie Wilkin­son and Jenny Pitt were nearest the pin win­ners. Ian Tay­lor also won the straight drive.

Pe­ter An­thony and Lucy Sweeney were win­ners in the bowls, with run­ners-up Fred Scammell and Rachel Ker­shaw. Other bowls prizes went to Rhonda Bryce and Robyn Arnold, Fran Leahy and Mick Bald­win, and Alan Knight and Jenny Ryan.

A cou­ple of guess­ing games — ‘name the clever bear’ and ‘guess the num­ber of golf balls, tees, and choco­lates in the jar’ — cre­ated quite a bit of amuse­ment and frus­tra­tion.

Har­ri­son Brad­ford won the bear, cor­rectly pick­ing the name Ein­stein, and Rhonda Bryce cor­rectly guessed two out of the three items in the jar, win­ning the golf balls, tees and choco­lates.

Aux­il­iary pres­i­dent Nancy Locke was de­lighted with the out­come of the day.

Thanks were ex­pressed to the Aux­il­iary and golf club mem­bers who sup­plied light re­fresh­ments, the Lions club for man­ning their car­a­van on the course, and to ev­ery­one who at­tended.

Thanks to the peo­ple who gen­er­ously do­nated goods and ser­vices for the con­tinu- ous raf­fle, which had around 50 in­di­vid­ual prizes.

There were also a num­ber of gen­er­ous cash do­na­tions, and in to­tal the day raised over $2000.

The lovely spring weather was also ideal for the an­nual Kids Fish­ing Day run by the lo­cal Fish­ing Club at Lake Jer­ilderie on Sun­day.

Sixty-two kids and many young fam­i­lies en­joyed the sur­rounds of Luke Park and the lake; from early ob­ser­va­tions it was a very suc­cess­ful day.

The Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary mem­bers held their last Blumes Fash­ions show­ing for the year last Thurs­day at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Win­ner of the lucky door prize was Kath An­gove, and Deb­bie Ryan won the raf­fle. Thanks to all those peo­ple who sup­ported the day by bak­ing, com­ing along to en­joy the morn­ing, or pur­chas­ing items.

Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal res­i­dents are plan­ning to es­tab­lish a Craft Group, and are seek­ing un­wanted but­tons and ar­ti­fi­cial flow­ers to get their ac­tiv­i­ties up and run­ning.

If any com­mu­nity mem­bers have but­ton jars full of odd but­tons which they no longer have a use for, or ar­ti­fi­cial flow­ers which may have out­lived their pop­u­lar­ity, do­na­tions may be left in a box at the Jer­ilderie Newsagency.

The Jer­ilderie Flower Show will be held in the Civic Hall on Oc­to­ber 27. Sched­ules of en­tries and at­trac­tions are avail­able in shops around town.

There will be op­por­tu­ni­ties to buy gifts for Christ­mas at many of the stalls on the day. Chil­dren from the two schools and preschool will be pro­vid­ing en­ter­tain­ment.

If you have any knives that need sharp­en­ing there will be a knife sharp­ener on duty dur­ing the day.

Do you have any old gum­boots? Don’t throw them out — this year there is a nov­elty sec­tion for Dec­o­rated Gum­boot!

Ad­mis­sion to the flower show is $2, lunch will be $15, and af­ter­noon tea $5.

Tidy Towns gar­den judg­ing will be tak­ing place around Jer­ilderie up to Oc­to­ber 21. Cat­e­gories this year are best over­all gar­den, best new gar­den, most colour­ful gar­den, best busi­ness gar­den, best gov­ern­ment gar­den, best back yard gar­den (by ap­point­ment).

Re­sults will be an­nounced at the Flower Show.

Please con­tact Ian Sned­don on 5886 1750, or Sadie Her­rick 5886 1771, if you would like to share your back gar­den with the judges.

Has your fam­ily sud­denly found a fish­ing rod, or rods, in its pos­ses­sion, where once there was none?

Six fish­ing rods were re­moved from a build­ing site at 40 Bolton St, af­ter a re­cent break-in at a stor­age shed on the block.

The owner of the rods would ap­pre­ci­ate their re­turn, and is pre­pared to take the mat­ter no fur­ther if the rods are re­turned to the block in Bolton St as soon as pos­si­ble.
