The Sav­er­nake com­mu­nity con­tin­ued its Aus­tralia Day tra­di­tion of host­ing a de­li­cious Aus­tralian bar­be­cue break­fast at its hall.

This year saw 90 lo­cal res­i­dents and guests of all ages en­joy good food and so­cial time to­gether.

The morn­ing be­gan with An­drew ‘Jock’ Tom, rep­re­sent­ing the Yar­ra­wonga Lions Club, mak­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion to the Sav­er­nake Hall Com­mit­tee.

Pre­sented to com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Chris­tine Gor­man, the cheque for $2,072 was from the pro­ceeds of the Lions Club Wool Show, held in con­junc­tion with the Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Agri­cul­tural Show in Oc­to­ber.

The funds will be used to pur­chase equip­ment to en­hance the re­cent re­fur­bish­ments to the hall.

Af­ter break­fast lo­cal piper Graeme Ste­wart played the Na­tional An­them — on his newly pur­chased set of black­wood pipes — while two long-time res­i­dents, June and Janet Gor­man, raised the Aus­tralian flag.

Mr Ste­wart also played a se­lec­tion of Aus­tralian and Scot­tish songs, to the en­joy­ment of the crowd.

It was a de­light to see so many lo­cal res­i­dents, for­mer res­i­dents, friends and fam­ily as well as guests from Ja­pan par­tic­i­pat­ing in such a friendly gath­er­ing.

Sav­er­nake Hall Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Chris­tine Gor­man pre­sent­ing An­drew ‘Jock’ Tom with a cheque for the Yar­ra­wonga Lions Club.
