Some­thing else to mark on your cal­en­dars is a visit to Jer­ilderie on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 30 by mem­bers of the Rolls Royce Club of Aus­tralia.

At least eight beau­ti­ful cars, with their own­ers, will be trav­el­ling from Syd­ney to Echuca over a few days, and will be stop­ping in Jer­ilderie for lunch at the Royal Mail Ho­tel, for about an hour.

The club mem­bers are in­ter­ested in fol­low­ing the Ned Kelly Trail, and check­ing out the sto­ries about Jer­ilderie’s place in Ned’s his­tory.

Lo­cal his­to­rian Lau­rie Hen­ery will be meet­ing with them.

Peo­ple are wel­come to go down and have a look at these el­e­gant cars, and make the driv­ers and their friends feel wel­come.

The Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary held a small Blumes Fash­ion show­ing of spring/ sum­mer wear last Thurs­day.

The 13 ladies present en­joyed the shared morn­ing tea, and the chance to view some of the colour­ful, sum­mery clothes avail­able for sale.

The raf­fle was won by Ta­nia Roe, and the lucky door prize by Betty Pur­cell.

This may be the last Blumes ap­pear­ance for the Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary in Jer­ilderie, as it is be­com­ing quite dif­fi­cult to draw the num­bers to make the event worth­while.

The Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary will meet on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 25 in the meet­ing room at the hos­pi­tal, at 2pm.

The Jer­ilderie Fish­ing Club hosted a very suc­cess­ful Gone Fish­ing Day at Lake Jer­ilderie on Sun­day.

The warmer weather en­cour­aged a large turn-out of eager young an­glers, and their fam­i­lies and sup­port­ers.

A re­minder to Jer­ilderie Vin­nies shop vol­un­teers that there will be a meet­ing at the shop to­mor­row, at 9.30am, to meet with man­agers from Wagga and Al­bury.

Vin­nies will soon be open­ing on Thurs­days. This meet­ing will be an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss work­ing the ex­tra day.

The monthly com­bined church ser­vice for Jer­ilderie will be held at St Stephen’s Angli­can Church, Jer­ilderie at 10am this Sun­day.

Last month a good num­ber of peo­ple at­tended the ser­vice, and en­joyed the morn­ing tea which fol­lowed.

Ev­ery­one will be made most wel­come.

The Jer­ilderie lawn bowls sea­son has started.

Bare­foot bowls will be played ev­ery Wed­nes­day evening dur­ing day­light sav­ing. Be ready to roll at 6pm. Cost is $7 per player.

There will be prizes for first and sec­ond, plus a lucky chance draw. All wel­come.
