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.
