Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

At the last meet­ing of the year for the Jer­ilderie Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary, deputy re­gional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Chrissy El­lis gave a report on the re­cent State Con­fer­ence of UHA (United Hospi­tal Aux­il­iaries) held in Bankstown.

She also came home bear­ing the An­drea Mul­li­gan Tro­phy for the aux­il­iary that raised the most money for an MPS (multi pur­pose ser­vice), in 2012.

Jer­ilderie mem­bers were sur­prised and de­lighted to win this tro­phy, which will re­side in pride of place in the Jer­ilderie Com­mu­nity Cen­tre for the next twelve months.

Mem­bers were also pleased with the fi­nal fi­nan­cial out­come of the Novem­ber 4 Hospi­tal Fete, which was nearly $6000, thanks to the ter­rific sup­port of the wider com­mu­nity.

Mem­bers are asked to ad­vise Loretta or Sara by De­cem­ber 5, if they will be at­tend­ing the Christ­mas lun­cheon be­ing hosted by the staff at the hospi­tal on De­cem­ber 12, at 11.30am.

The Aux­il­iary Christ­mas din­ner is be­ing planned at the Colony Inn Ho­tel for Mon­day De­cem­ber 10, for mem­bers and hus­bands/part­ners/friends.

Names for ca­ter­ing pur­poses to be in to Judy Ryan by De­cem­ber 3, please.

●●● Or­gan­is­ers of the Angli­can Christ­mas Fair were de­lighted with the sup­port given to the an­nual event on Fri­day Novem­ber 23.

There was a won­der­ful ar­ray of stalls, of­fer­ing a va­ri­ety of use­ful, lovely and un­usual gifts, and 115 de­li­cious lunches were served over the day.

●●● Great to see that Jer­ilderie Pub­lic School won the ‘Great Wall of Dairy’ com­pe­ti­tion, in which other district schools par­tic­i­pated. The win­ning ban­ner will be on dis­play at the school over the next few weeks.

●●● On Tues­day Novem­ber 20, the chil­dren and staff at St Joseph’s school had a fun day to mark Uni­ver­sal Chil­dren’s Day.

Stu­dents or­gan­ised their own novel stalls, and showed off their tal­ents in the Tal­ent Quest, help­ing to raise money for the Mis­sions.

Par­ents were in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in the fun on the day, and dads cooked the sausage siz­zle pro­vided.

All the stu­dents were in­vited to wear clothes in­di­cat­ing the oc­cu­pa­tion they would like to fol­low when they grow up, with some clever and amus­ing re­sults.
