Planting to mark Tree Day
Students from both primary schools will join Tidy Towns members this Friday to celebrate National Tree Day (which is on July 30).
Six small trees will be planted behind the public school, near the Community Garden. The get-together will be at noon. There will be lots of tree hugging no doubt.
Vinnies volunteers are reminded of their meeting at the Vinnies shop today, at 11.30am.
Jerilderie Hospital Auxiliary will meet tomorrow at 2pm in the Community Centre meeting room at the hospital.
The Anglican church of Jerilderie is having a special Fellowship Day this Sunday.
The service will begin at 11am, with the Reverend David Sloan as guest speaker.
David is a retired Uniting Church minis- ter, and a wonderful communicator about the practical things God uses to help us through life.
No matter what your background is, you are invited to go along and hear him speak.
After the service a ‘bring-and-share’ lunch will be laid out in the church hall, to which you are also invited.
There will be no Anglican service in Tocumwal or Finley on Sunday.

The Fishing Club boys selling raffle tickets in front of IGA on Saturday morning weren’t too daunted by the cold morning.
They had a mobile heater tucked under the table to keep their feet warm. That is certainly raising the bar for other fundraisers.
