‘Physie’ group to compete in Sydney
An Edith Parsons Physical Culture group started in Jerilderie about five months ago, under the guidance of Rebecca Boag of Coleambally.
Physie, as it is commonly known, is a unique competitive sport combining dance, floor and standing exercises for girls and women.
The Jerilderie participants recently took part in their first interclub competition, between Jerilderie and Coleambally, at Yamma Hall in Coleambally.
Two teams from Jerilderie will now go on to compete in Sydney on November 3.
Teams have to be properly attired for such endeavours, and leotards are the required uniform.
Rebecca has asked if any individual or group might be willing to sponsor the EP Physie group, to help alleviate uniform and travelling expenses.
More information on the group can be accessed on www.epphysie.com.au. Rebecca may be contacted on (02) 6954 8572.
St Stephen’s Anglican Church, Jerilderie, was the setting last Sunday for a joyful combined service with friends from the Uniting Church.
Lorraine Comber played the organ for the hymns, which were led by several strong voices in the congregation.
More than 30 people attended, with a few visitors from Gulgong, Grenfell, Melbourne, and even New Zealand.
After the service, a morning tea — fit for a king or queen — was shared in the church hall where there was also much catching up.
Next month’s combined service will be on Sunday, August 19 at the Uniting Church at 10am.
Everyone is always welcome to join in.
