Enjoying a cooler Oz Day
The weather did at least ease up a bit for the Australia Day festivities in Jerilderie on Saturday night.
Overcast conditions took some of the heat out of the air, giving people the incentive to take themselves off to Luke Park to enjoy the activities beside the lake, including the ever popular colourful fireworks display.
There were visitors from other towns, and lots of young families pleased to escape the confines of four walls and air conditioners.
Sunday even presented some light showers and cooler conditions, much to everyone’s relief, and a beautiful sunset to cap off the day.
Congratulations to all Jerilderie Australia Day award winners for 2019 — Citizen of the Year Joy Knight, Young Citizen of the Year Mitch A’Vard, Sportsperson of the Year Sienna Burke and Little Aussies of the Year Chloe Rorato (St Joseph’s School) and Abbey A’Vard (Jerilderie Public School).
Best wishes to Peter Payne for today. Peter shares a birthday with your correspondent, but he’s younger!
Schools go back this week, so we hope for the sake of students and teachers that the weather doesn’t take off again into the high 40s.
What are our chances?
