A de­li­cious, healthy lunch was pro­vided and served by mem­bers of St Joseph’s P & F.

Start­ing in late 2009, with Wendy ( Rhonda Pethert ran the pro­gram for two years prior) it in­cluded first:

First Aid train­ing, Car­ers As­sist ed­u­ca­tion, a skate park event (Fin­ley), part­ner­ships with Jer­ilderie Lions for a brain health night, and bowel cancer and di­a­betes fo­rum, ob­tain­ing grants through Jer­ilderie Men­shed for com­puter train­ing for be­gin­ners, a Triple P par­ent­ing course, a bud­get course, pam­per days, har­vest night and Dar­ling­ton Point zoo trip for dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies, to name just a few.

Sis­ter Ber­nadette Pat­ter­son, from Cen­tacare Wagga, was able to ad­vise those present that a pro­gram called Com­mu­ni­ties for Chil­dren, funded by the Com­mon­wealth Gov­ern­ment, will be start­ing in the Ber­ri­gan and Jer­ilderie Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment ar­eas in early July.

The aim is to im­prove out­comes for chil­dren from 0 to 12 years of age, and will in­clude con­sul­ta­tion with the com­mu­ni­ties and for­ma­tion of com- mit­tee groups of peo­ple with knowl­edge in the child care field.

●●● Pub­lic School and St Joseph’s Catholic School fi­nal­ists in this year’s lo­cal Lions Pub­lic Speak­ing competition will meet for the judges at the Jer­ilderie Lions din­ner later in July, at the Colony Inn Ho­tel.

It is un­der­stood that the stan­dard is high and judges will be hard pressed to sep­a­rate the con­tenders.
