Club wants guest numbers confirmed for Mock Wedding
Tocumwal Football and Netball Club are hosting a Mock Wedding on July 29.
This event is an over 18 night, and those who have indicated they are going should contact Sarah Quick and pay for their tickets.
Remember to bring along your friends for a fun night. There are no tickets for sale at the door. Firm numbers are needed for catering — it’s a wedding after all! Start time is 6.30pm with canapes for the 7pm ceremony.
Tocumwal Junior footballer Blair Eddy notched up a great milestone on Saturday in the game against Picola.
Blair has played 50 club games and he is still in the under 14s.
This gutsy little player has no fear as he mixes it with the bigger players.
If Blair can continue to play without injury, there is every possibility he will break many of the club’s longevity records in his time.
Ben Herezo also played 50 reserve games, and Jessica Bennett, who started out with the club in junior netball, has marked her 100th game as a senior.
Well done to all.
School holidays are over again for the eastern states and the kids are back at school.
Many local grandparents are returning from child minding duties with great stories about adventures with grandchildren.
Hope you all had a great time catching up.

In Berrigan the Community Garden group are planting trees at the Berrigan Tank Paddock, with the local schools all attending on the Friday and the public welcome to join them on the Sunday.
Anyone interested in starting a tree group in Tocumwal can contact Councillor Colin Jones.
There are grants and assistance available for those who put their hands up to help.
So many people chose Tocumwal to live because of its tree coverage and its natural aspects, but these are fast getting lost under concrete and clay.

The address of the service centre will be unchanged in Howe St.
A date for your diaries. Tocumwal Rural Fire Service is having an Open Day on Sunday, September 17 from 9am to 3pm.
