Silent Flight lands for 40th year
This weekend will see The League of Silent Flight return to Jerilderie to celebrate 40 years of competition at the racecourse on the June long weekend.
The Jerilderie Lions Club will be manning their caravan at the racecourse on Friday afternoon, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, providing sustenance and drinks for the competitors.
After 25 years of keeping district people, and many in the wider community, warm and cosy in bed with their quilts, underlays and pillows, Maureen and Terry Davies of ‘Curraghmohr’, Finley, will cease manufacture of their Aussie Wool range in early July.
The Davies’ are moving on to a new chapter in their lives, having purchased a smaller property in Gippsland.
Maureen and Terry have expressed thanks to their many customers for their support during their 25 years in the busi- ness, and people in this area would surely wish them well for the future.
Their popular products have helped to keep many of us warm and comfortable in both winter and summer; different organisations in the area have also benefited from their generosity in providing items for many successful raffles over the years.
If you wish to contact Aussie Wool before they close please call 5883 1757.
