Neil and Mavis made a splash
OUR heartfelt thanks go to Neil and Mavis Grummitt for their significant donation to the Kyvalley Swimming Club to help us in light of the recent theft from the Kyvalley Parkgrounds.
It was a wonderful gesture, a big surprise and is very much appreciated.
Everyone had a wonderful time at our Morning Melodies last week.
Kim and Annette were booked but Annette has recently been ill, and was understandably unable to fly/attend. Kim came over from New Zealand and entertained the crowd gathered at the Kyvalley Hall; from the first song, everyone was singing along and tapping their feet. The usual delicious, homemade morning tea provided by the Kyvalley ladies was enjoyed by all. Proceeds from this event will go towards the ongoing upkeep of the Kyvalley Swimming Pool.
Thank you to all that came along and supported us. Kerran Keats, who provided the sound system for Kim during the Morning Melodies, is arranging a special Sunday afternoon concert, on Sunday, September 23 in aid of the Kyvalley Pool. Further details of the entertainers involved will be announced soon.
On Sunday, October 14 at 1.30pm, we have another great afternoon planned with Shane and the Wong Brother who will present ’60s, ’70s and ’80s music. Both upcoming concerts will provide a high standard of entertainment and an enjoyable afternoon for all. We have had a lot of interest. Early bookings are being taken now. Call Beryl on 0408 137 635 or Bev on 0417 360 687. As always, a delicious afternoon tea will be provided. Be great to see you at Kyvalley. The Kyvalley Pool Committee, Kyvalley.
Donald trumps our current lot
LAURIE Wintle’s letter on August 1 hit the nail on the head — Trump has trumped them all.
Trump reminds me of Bob Menzies, Queensland premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen and Bolte. Australia was a better place with these men in office.
With the world in such a mess due to nations against nations, I believe it’s time national service should be re-introduced in Australia. J M Studd, Kyabram.
Leaders can do only so much
THERE is an old saying that every new broom sweeps well. But the catch is how long it retains its sweeping ability.
When a new government is sworn in, the supporters are jubilant. They believe that all their troubles are over.
But life is not meant to be easy. No government can perform miracles.
When the harsh reality sinks in, some of the supporters may become disillusioned and feel that they have been betrayed. There is always a percentage of swinging voters, that can make or break the government. Jiri Kolenaty, Rushworth.
