Si­lent Flight lands for 40th year

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

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.

The JATS team hosted a Va­ri­ety Night on Sun­day, May 28 in the Civic Hall.

Around 60 peo­ple were en­ter­tained by a range of tal­ent, with a va­ri­ety of items, which in­cluded so­los and group per­for­mances, in singing, mu­sic and danc­ing.

MCs for the evening were Stephanie Har­ris and Sheri­dan Mort­lock.

At the end of the evening mem­bers of JATS pre­sented Kylie Pitt with a farewell gift, to cel­e­brate her cre­ation of, and in­volve­ment with the group, and as a mark of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for her en­thu­si­as­tic or­gan­i­sa­tional skills.

Kylie, Blue, and their fam­ily are leav­ing Jer­ilderie in the next week or two to start afresh in Nowra; we wish them ev­ery suc­cess.

Kylie has ex­pressed thanks to the Jer­ilderie of­fice of the Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil for grants which have en­abled JATS to pur­chase equip­ment to help with their on­go­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

She has also ex­pressed the hope that the com­mu­nity will con­tinue to sup­port JATS’ fu­ture pro­duc­tions.

Prin­ci­pal of St Joseph’s Catholic School, Amanda Catena, re­cently at­tended the As­so­ci­a­tion of Catholic School Prin­ci­pals 2017 Con­fer­ence, in the Hunter Val­ley.

There were 350 prin­ci­pals who at­tended, en­joy­ing na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed speak­ers from the UK, Sin­ga­pore, Fin­land and Aus­tralia in what was an in­spir­ing con­fer­ence.

Stu­dents at St Joseph’s were re­cently in­volved in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties to help them un­der­stand the im­por­tance of Na­tional Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Week which ran from May 27 to June 3.

A former stu­dent of the school, An­drew Neessen, has re­cently spent a week at St Joseph’s do­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence in the class­rooms.

June birth­days at St Joseph’s are Jaden McGillivray 2nd, Miss Browne 10th, Car­men Law­ton 14th, Darby Edwards Par­sons 22nd, and Brigit Hamil­ton 22nd. Best wishes to all those peo­ple.

Mem­bers of Jer­ilderie’s former Sing Aus­tralia group will be sorry to learn of the death on Satur­day, af­ter a short ill­ness, of Glenda Webb of Fin­ley.

Glenda and her hus­band David were mem­bers of Jer­ilderie’s Sing Aus­tralia group for a short time, and would be re­mem­bered as part of the Sing Aus­tralia choir at the Christ­mas Carol Ser­vice at St Stephen’s Angli­can Church, in past years.

Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to David and their ex­tended fam­ily.
