Mansfield Courier - - Profession­al & Consultant Business Directory -

AUS­TRALIA Day cel­e­bra­tions in Jamieson will be con­ducted at the Jamieson River Re­serve (Brew­ery Hole), at the river end of Perkins Street.

The ser­vice will com­mence at 11am.

There will be the wel­come, the rais­ing of the flag, singing of the Na­tional An­them, the oath, a speech by Harry Western­dorp, Mans­field Shire mayor, po­etry recital by Ken Hop­kin­son and com­mu­nity singing led by Genevieve Bol­well.

Jamieson CFA pro­vides a free sausage siz­zle manned by the vol­un­teer CFA team.

This an­nual event is well at­tended, in a su­perb river­side lo­ca­tion.

All wel­come.

REG­U­LAR vis­i­tors to Jamieson, Wendy and Ge­off Al­way, hosted the wedding of their daugh­ter Tracey Crosth­waite and Brent Red­mond re­cently.

The wedding was held at the Carousel Restau­rant on Al­bert Park Lake, in Melbourne - 120 guests at­tended the ser­vice with fam­ily and friends in at­ten­dance.

The cou­ple are hon­ey­moon­ing in Hawaii.


THE an­nual 10 Mile to Kev­ing­ton Re­gatta on the Goul­burn River will be with Carmel Dixon

held on Sun­day, Jan­uary 27.

All en­trants must be at 10 Mile at 10am to reg­is­ter for the 10:30am start.

This event has been a high­light on the raft­ing cal­en­dar - 200 com­peti­tors en­tered the race in 2018 and com­peted for the win­ner’s tro­phy.

The cri­te­ria for com­pe­ti­tion is just a floata­tion de­vice, it is re­quired by all com­peti­tors, be it a sin­gle or team en­try.

Cos­tume is en­cour­aged with the more colour­ful or cre­ative wel­comed.

The en­try fee is $10 per com­peti­tor.

At the com­ple­tion of the ‘race’ at the Kev­ing­ton Ho­tel, lun­cheon will be avail­able.

The en­ter­tain­ment will be sup­plied by the band ‘Just Enough’, who will be play­ing to the at­ten­dees in the river­side gar­den from the stage.

All wel­come.

LO­CAL res­i­dent poet and bard Ken Hop­kin­son cel­e­brated his birth­day on Sun­day in Jamieson.

Friends and fam­ily joined Ken for a cel­e­bra­tory bar­be­cue at his Jamieson home and en­joyed a balmy gar­den party in his leafy cool gar­den.

Happy Birth­day.

JAMIESON CFA mem­bers were very busy, with four call outs on two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions, in the last few days.

The he­li­copter ac­ci­dent in Howqua and a fire in Kev­ing­ton, were a sharp re­minder for us all to be vig­i­lant.

The com­mu­nity is ap­pre­cia­tive of the gen­eros­ity of this self­less group of vol­un­teers, who work tire­lessly keep­ing us safe.

THE Jamieson com­mu­nity was sad­dened by the re­cent pass­ing of for­mer res­i­dent Gra­ham Scarffe.

Gra­ham and his late wife Dorothea were very pop­u­lar mem­bers of the Jamieson com­mu­nity for many years.

A ser­vice cel­e­brat­ing Gra­ham’s life will be held at Saint John the Apos­tle Church in Jamieson, at a date to be an­nounced.

He will be sadly missed. In God’s Care.

TY­ING THE KNOT: Stacey Crosth­waite and Brent Red­man were re­cently mar­ried.
