Rock on with the whole family at Wangaratta Racecourse next month
NAOMI Hodgens from Human and Hound will be guest speaker at the Friends of Winton Wetlands annual general meeting on Saturday, September 22.
Naomi will attend with tracker dog Kip, who will demonstrate its ability to locate turtle nest sites at Winton Wetlands, and through this action, will enable the protection of nest sites against predators.
The AGM will be run from 10am to 2pm at the Old Mokoan Yacht Club in Lake Mokoan Road, Chesney Vale, with lunch provided.

FOSTER carers are urgently needed to provide a safe place for local children to stay on a long term, short term or emergency basis.
Upper Murray Family Care (UMFC) provides foster care for 60 children each night in the North East region, but last month eight adolescents and 11 children were unable to be placed as there were no carers available.
Local families, couples and singles interested in finding out more about what’s involved in providing foster care are invited to attend an information session at UMFC today at 5pm at 37 Mackay Street in Wangaratta, where they can find out what foster care is really like from carers in the local area.
RSVP is not essential but would be appreciated by contacting Jeanine on 02 6055 8000 with light refreshments provided.
ROCK ON: See Miss Kitty and the Memphis Trio perform live at the Rockabilly Rock’n event in October.
