Light­ing up for Christ­mas

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Mar­i­anne Whe­lan

It’s great to see the com­mu­nity get­ting into the spirit of Christ­mas.

There are some amaz­ing lights and dec­o­ra­tions pop­ping up around town.

This year the BDDA will have three awards for Best Dec­o­rated House and three awards for Best Light­ing Dis­play, an En­cour­age­ment Award and an award for Best Dec­o­rated Busi­ness House.

The judg­ing will be on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 14 and the win­ners an­nounced at Car­ols in the Park.

Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School’s Kinder­garten and Year 1 class went to Tam­mie’s Ber­ri­gan Bak­ery on ex­cur­sion last month.

Af­ter the group washed their hands, Tam­mie showed them the dif­fer­ent kinds of flour, which comes from Perth.

She then showed stu­dents the in­gre­di­ents she uses to make bread with a big dough mix, which made rolls.

Later on Tam­mie brought the bread rolls to school so the group could eat them at re­cess.

Car­ols by Can­dle­light will be held on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 17 at Apex Park start­ing at 6.30pm. Santa will ar­rive at 7.45pm.

Please bring your own chairs; a bar­be­cue, drinks and ice creams will be avail­able on the night.

Daw­mac will once again be host­ing the Free Com­mu­nity Break­fast on De­cem­ber 24 at the Men’s Shed.

This is a great op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to get to­gether be­fore Christ­mas.

The break­fast will be served from 7.30am to 9am.

The un­der-12 crick­eters con­tin­ued on their win­ning streak, de­feat­ing Ba­rooga last Satur­day.

There was a big crowd there to watch the young­sters bowl, bat and field in an ex­cit­ing game.

This week Ber­ri­gan will play the last game be­fore the Christ­mas break.

Per­fect weather con­di­tions made for a great even­ing for the Christ­mas Mar­ket Night on Fri­day.

A huge crowd en­joyed out­door din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment by Mul­berry Street, and the chil­dren were very ex­cited when Santa ar­rived.

There were also plenty of bar­gains grabbed up by shop­pers.

Thank you to the com­mu­nity who sup­ported this night.

Eleven mem­bers were present at the Ber­ri­gan Red Cross Novem­ber meet­ing.

The Sum­mer Ap­peal street stall was held Novem­ber 23, and raf­fle win­ners were Maryanne Whe­lan (voucher), Sue Cameron (plum pud­ding) and Joy Mur­phy (ted­dies).

A morn­ing tea to present thank you cer­tifi­cates to shop work­ers was held on Satur­day, the same day as the Fash­ion Ex­trav­a­ganza.

The prof­its from this year’s fash­ion show will be di­vided be­tween the Syria Ap­peal and the Ber­ri­gan Swim­ming Pool.

The Red Cross an­nual Xmas morn­ing tea for the res­i­dents of Ama­roo will be­gin at 10am on De­cem­ber 14. Mem­bers are asked to bring a plate.

This Fri­day is the Red Cross Xmas lunch at the Madill Cen­tre at noon.
