●●● The Hospital Fete is drawing ever nearer.
Sunday, November 6 is the date to mark on your calendars.
The Bridal Gown parade will be one of the features of the fete, and is shaping up to be one of great interest, with 13 gowns to be modelled.
So far about 11 married couples have produced their wedding photos – those married 35 years or more - for the ‘Who is it?’ competition.
Judy Ryan is still receiving photos, and would like to have them before the end of October.
Photos can be left at 105 Jerilderie St – if Judy is not there please leave photos in the black bag hanging on the side gate.
Thanks to those who have stepped up to the plate so far.
Prizes for the fete’s major raffle are being gathered; if people have any pre-loved books no longer needed they would be very welcome for the book stall.
Likewise items for the Trash and Treasure.
Of course cooks will be encouraged to bake cakes and slices for the Cake Stall as the fete gets closer, and any produce will also be gratefully received.
There will be the popular novelty baby show, Devonshire Teas, and lots more. So make it a date to bring your family along to the Community Centre on November 6.
