Mixed bags in road­side clean-up

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Nine Tidy Towns mem­bers turned out on a damp Sun­day morn­ing to col­lect 12 chaff bags of as­sorted rub­bish along Fin­ley Rd.

They were some­what be­mused by the un­usual num­ber of egg car­tons — 20 — adorn­ing the south bound road­side, and not a chook in sight.

One odd sock and half a thong were also found among the usual cof­fee cups, drink bot­tles and cig­a­rette pack­ets.

Wouldn’t you think peo­ple would keep their rub­bish in their cars un­til they get to the next stop, where they could off-load into a road­side bin?

Be­lated happy birth­day to Ron Bryce, who cel­e­brated the oc­ca­sion with a fam­ily din­ner at the Colony Inn Ho­tel on Tues­day, June 20.

Happy birth­day to James Mort­lock who had a birth­day on Wed­nes­day, June 21.

July birth­days at St Joseph’s School are Lily Kocks (5th), Zavier Ro­rato (6th), Char­lie Ro­rato (11th), and Oliver Slee­man (21st). Best wishes to all those peo­ple.

The St Joseph’s Debu­tante Ball will be held on Satur­day, July 22, with seven young ladies mak­ing their de­but.

Jer­ilderie Lifeballers have gone into re­cess over the win­ter months, and will not re­sume again un­til Au­gust, with a date to be con­firmed.

The Lifeballers’ monthly morn­ing tea will, how­ever, con­tinue on the last Wed­nes­day of the month.

The group will meet to­day at the bak­ery from 10.30am, and all wel­come.

The Jer­ilderie Vin­nies shop vol­un­teer ros­ter, from July 12 to early Oc­to­ber, will be pre­pared soon.

If you wish to make any changes, please con­tact Judy be­fore she draws up the next ros­ter.

Like­wise, if you are one of the lucky vol­un­teers who mi­grate north for the win­ter and won’t be avail­able for those cou­ple of months, would you please let Judy know as soon as pos­si­ble.

Jer­ilderie Public School Year 5 and 6 stu­dents at­tended the mati­nee of the Fin­ley High School MADD per­for­mance last Wed­nes­day. They thor­oughly en­joyed the dis­play of tal­ent on show, as did those of us lucky enough to see the evening per­for­mance.

Thanks to the Jer­ilderie peo­ple who bought tick­ets in the MADD raf­fle out­side IGA re­cently; sadly, none of the prizes came home to Jer­ilderie. The three win­ners were from out of town.

Jer­ilderie Public School Kinder­garten to Year 3 stu­dents learned a lot of in­ter­est­ing and help­ful in­for­ma­tion about the care and han­dling of an­i­mals, dur­ing the Re­spon­si­ble Pet Own­er­ship Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gram which vis­ited JPS re­cently.

JPS is proudly sport­ing some highly imag­i­na­tive Mo­saic Poles cre­ated by the stu­dents un­der the guid­ance of Ka Martin. Have a look at the mas­ter­pieces next time you are in the school grounds.

This Fri­day, the Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil is hold­ing a Colour Fun Run to raise funds for the school. The fundraise will also help with costs of the whole school ex­cur­sion to Mel­bourne to see ‘Aladdin the Mu­si­cal’.

Jer­ilderie CWA mem­ber Lucy Sweeney re­cently won sec­ond place in the statewide Land Cook­ery Com­pe­ti­tion for her beau­ti­ful mar­malade. Well done!
