Regattas, weddings and Australia Day
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.
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.
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.
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.
