The Cobram Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

When war bride Joan Miechel fol­lowed her Aus­tralian hus­band from her North Amer­i­can home to post-war Shep­par­ton in the 1940s it was like land­ing on an­other planet.

But she has just cel­e­brated her 100th birth­day as a French-Cana­dian Aussie and shared the big day with her five chil­dren and 49 grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren.

At the other end of the time­line 13-yearold Indyanna-Rose Cic­cone is on her way to North Amer­ica and the fi­nals of the Miss Teen In­ter­na­tional where she will com­pete against girls from around the world.

You can read about both these re­mark­able lo­cals in­side to­day’s Courier.
