Winter appeal a success
Berrigan Red Cross had a successful street stall last Wednesday, despite the rain.
The total raised for the winter appeal was $655.50.
The winner of the load of wood, donated by the Berrigan Lions Club, was Janet Gorman. Second prize, an ash bucket donated by Jacquetta Sloan, was won by Don McLennan.
President Thelma Ryan would like to thank the community of Berrigan for their continued support of Red Cross.
Bishop Rob Gillion, the Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Riverina, will be in the parish on Sunday to officially mark the return of Anglican worship to the United Protestant Church in Oaklands.
Worship that morning will be in Oaklands at 10am and will be followed by lunch.
Please come along and celebrate this occasion.

This Saturday night the Berrigan Football/ Netball Club will hold the annual Footballers Ball at the sportsground.
You can purchase your ticket from Arlena Pyle on Thursday night, or at the door.
Each Thursday morning, Berrigan Public School children in Years 3-6 gather in the hall for Musica Berrigan where they have been working with rhythm, beat and tone.
Last week in groups, children had to explore onomatopoeia, using vocal sounds, body percussion and instruments to enhance the verbs in the poem
Teachers videoed each group and the children then watched the recital on the smartboard and listened to the sound effects without the visual.
Teachers and students said they were impressed with the results.
Berrigan Public School students enjoying Musica were Alexandra Trives, Regan Fox, Isabel Alexander, Lucy Philips, Shae Fennell, Keia Towler, Annabel Middleton, Piper Mills, Jebidiah MeyerVale, Callum Lindner and Jye Litchfield.
