Pink Ribbon Day a success
Jenny Tarrant and Jean Williams would like to thank all who participated in the Pink Ribbon Day in Finley, activities and fashion parade. A lovely morning tea and lunch was enjoyed by all.
A lucky door prize was drawn and won by Wendy Lane, the raffle for the $100 voucher towards a power bill was won by John Robinson and a delicious box of chocolates went to J. Pratt. Congratulations to the winners.
The ladies look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s Pink Ribbon Day.
The Uniting church will be holding its friendship morning again tomorrow Thursday, November 8, starting at 10am and will conclude after a light lunch.
Last month patrons watched the movie Churchill, which was well received.
A surprise visitor on the morning was Rev. Terence Corkin, a former minister, as he was travelling through and called in for a catch up and lunch.
Last week we held a successful street stall and raffle, the latter being won by Cheryl Bodycoat. Congratulations Cheryl and a big thank you to all who purchased tickets and goods from the stall.
A reminder that we will not be having worship at the church on Sunday November 11.
Instead we will be attending the Remembrance Day service at Diggers Park.
