Past Play­ers to farewell ‘Yabby’

Southern Riverina news - - News - Anne Free­stone

THE Fin­ley Foot­ball Club Past Play­ers are con­duct­ing their an­nual lun­cheon this Satur­day at the clu­b­rooms.

Any past play­ers or sup­port­ers of the club are wel­come to at­tend and an en­joy­able day is as­sured.

Cater­ing ar­range­ments re­quire that reser­va­tions be fi­nalised on or be­fore Fri­day by con­tact­ing Ash­ley on 0409 831 228 or Mark on 0459 026 451.

This func­tion has be­come hugely pop­u­lar in re­cent years with the in­creased par­tic­i­pa­tion of fe­male mem­bers and it is hoped that this trend will con­tinue.

The event be­gins at 11.30am and con­cludes in time for pa­trons to watch the main se­nior game.

VFL/AFL pre­mier­ships coach Al­lan (Yabby) Jeans was a staunch sup­porter of the Fin­ley Past Play­ers and will be sadly missed by all. Just a re­minder that this com­ing Fri­day will see the fi­nal count of Fin­ley’s con­tri­bu­tion to the ABC ‘Wrap With Love’ squares.

This will take place at the Li­brary at 10am and it would be ap­pre­ci­ated if all com­pleted squares could be at the li­brary by that time. Satur­day’s Lions Club wood raf­fle win­ner was Marj Maxwell. With Cen­sus night set for Tues­day Au­gust 9, col­lec­tors will soon be seen de­liv­er­ing forms to res­i­dents in Fin­ley and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

eCen­sus forms will also be avail­able to be sub­mit­ted on­line for those who wish to com­ply with the reg­u­la­tions in this man­ner.

In­for­ma­tion gained from the Cen­sus which

is con­ducted ev­ery five years al­lows all lev­els of gov­ern­ment to meet com­mu­nity re­quire­ments. A demon­stra­tion on how to present flow­ers for show ex­hi­bi­tion will be held at 3pm at the Unit­ing Church Fin­ley on Mon­day Au­gust 1. Win­ners for Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis raf­fle were: first E. Ryan $75 fuel voucher; sec­ond Jim Mur­phy $50 IGA voucher; third Marg White $25 petrol.

John Milne re­ports that the fundrais­ing is com­ing along very well with only one more func­tion to be held at the Coun­try Club on Satur­day Au­gust 13 - Rock & Roll night (raf­fle that night will be for an out­door heater).

There will be a dance floor and hope­fully a demon­stra­tion from some mem­bers of the Co­bram Rock and Roll group. All wel­come! Items for ‘From Fin­ley’ may be sub­mit­ted by phon­ing 0428 293 922 or email anne.free­[email protected]­pond.com or left at the South­ern Rive­rina News of­fice.
