En­joy­ing a cooler Oz Day

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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?
