Var­ied ex­pe­ri­ences for lo­cals at Xmas

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Things have qui­etened down a lit­tle af­ter the Christ­mas rush, with vis­i­tors mak­ing their way back home in many cases.

Les­lie Ears­man en­joyed the com­pany of her daugh­ter and son-in-law Gail and Gra­ham Miller for Christ­mas.

Chris El­lis, af­ter a re­lax­ing Christ­mas Day in Mel­bourne, had a visit from her Syd­ney­based daugh­ter Sasha and her three chil­dren for a few days re­cently.

Ger­ard and Chris McFar­lane vis­ited fam­ily in Jer­ilderie af­ter Christ­mas, and caught up with old friends again, be­fore re­turn­ing to Arm­strong Creek in Vic­to­ria, on Tues­day.

Lau­rie and Joan Black­more re­turned from a White Christ­mas in Canada where they ‘en­joyed’ tem­per­a­tures in the mi­nus-20s, to re­turn to temps over 40 degrees.

For­tu­nately for them the cool change came the day af­ter they ar­rived home.

The win­ners of the Jer­ilderie In­de­pen­dent Liv­ing Ltd (JILL) raf­fle drawn on De­cem­ber 22 were Bec Belling (West­ing­house 40L mi­crowave), Vicky Pur­cell (GVA 85L Top Mount fridge), Rachel Pitt (Linden 80cm HD LED LCD TV), Faith Bryce (Vax Pet Pro Bar­rel Vacuum), Colin Sweeney (Philips Air Fryer), Louis Kelly (Sun­beam Toaster & Ket­tle Pack).

The raf­fle was run with the help of mem­bers of Jer­ilderie Tidy Towns and Jer­ilderie Men­shed.

Thanks to ev­ery­one who sup­ported this fundraiser for the In­de­pen­dent Liv­ing Units.

Ev­ery­one, even those who say they en­joy the heat, must have breathed a sigh of re­lief when the tem­per­a­ture re­turned to the mid20s for a cou­ple of days over the week­end.

We all needed a break to re­cover and re­group.

The Healthy Hearts Ex­er­cise class will re­con­vene on Tues­day, Jan­uary 15, at the Sport­ing Com­plex. Start­ing time is 10am for 10.15am. It may be a good way to work off some of the re­sults of the Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties.

Vol­un­teers for Vin­nies are re­minded that new ros­ters up to mid-Fe­bru­ary are now in the shop.
