New chap­ter in librarian’s life

Southern Riverina news - - News -

MANY friends, mem­bers and knit­ters gath­ered at the Fin­ley Li­brary on Fri­day to show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of ser­vice and friend­ship given by re­tir­ing librarian Ros Rowe dur­ing her time in her po­si­tion.

She is now look­ing for­ward to hav­ing some qual­ity time with hus­band Greg and chil­dren Sara and Jonathan.

Fol­low­ing morn­ing tea, a pre­lim­i­nary count was car­ried out of squares knit­ted for the char­ity Wrap With Love.

The re­sult was very pleas­ing, how­ever, the competition be­tween the four towns in Ber­ri­gan Shire does not close un­til July 31 and it is ex­pected that Fin­ley’s con­tri­bu­tion will far ex­ceed last year’s.

So re­mem­ber, com­pleted squares can still be left at the li­brary un­til the end of the month.

Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try & Agri­cul­ture Inc An­nual Gen­eral Din­ner Meet­ing will be held at the Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club on Wed­nes­day July 13 at 7pm.

Cost is $25 per head. Book­ings by to­day would be much ap­pre­ci­ated by call­ing Sue at Mur­ray Hut Cloth­ing on 5883 1310.

Bill Free­stone was the win­ner of last week’s Lions Club wood raf­fle.

●●● From butcher, to truck driver, to barista – noth­ing is too much of a chal­lenge for Trevor Sullivan since com­ing to Fin­ley and tak­ing on the Red Chair two months ago.

Lo­cal en­ter­tain­ment con­sist­ing of Max Whit­taker and Danny Wark on Fri­day evening proved too much of a temp­ta­tion for Trevor who ex­hib­ited his singing tal­ent ac­quired while an in­ter­state truck driver.

Max has shown him­self to be a man of many tal­ents also with sev­eral pieces played be­ing his own com­po­si­tions, one of which was suc­cess­ful in the Jer­ilderie Ned Kelly competition.

He has some of his own work on YouTube which can be seen when search­ing Max Whit­taker.

It is hoped that mu­sic stu­dents from Fin­ley High School will be pro­mot­ing their skills at the Red Chair in the near fu­ture.

●●● Pa­per craft lovers have the op­por­tu­nity of at­tend­ing the Paperific Expo 2011 at the Mel­bourne Show­grounds on Satur­day Au­gust 27.

For all in­ter­ested in scrap­book­ing, stamp­ing, card mak­ing and more, St Joseph’s School Fin­ley is or­gan­is­ing a bus de­part­ing 6am from the school and re­turn­ing ap­prox­i­mately 8pm.

Cost of $55 in­cludes en­try and bus. As num­bers are lim­ited, fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and book­ings can be made by call­ing Tanya Bauer on 5876 3223.
