Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Mar­i­anne Whe­lan

There was a won­der­ful at­ten­dance at the Aus­tralia Day break­fast, and the CWA com­mit­tee was thrilled that so many peo­ple sup­ported their ma­jor fundraiser.

The com­mit­tee wish to thank IGA for do­nat­ing the raf­fle and the Men’s Shed for help with pro­vid­ing ta­bles.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Woody for be­ing named 2019 Cit­i­zen of the Year and to Ri­ley Nolen for be­ing named Ju­nior Cit­i­zen of the Year. Both men have done a lot for our com­mu­nity and the town was thrilled to hear they have both been re­warded for their con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity.

This Fri­day night the pool will be open un­til 8pm, which will be fab­u­lous for the com­mu­nity as the hot weather con­tin­ues. Deb­bie Bur­ley is go­ing to put to­gether some din­ner spe­cials for Fri­day night and will donate $1 to the pool for each or­der. The cafe will also de­liver to the pool, so we hope to see many fam­i­lies there.

There were a cou­ple of par­ties over the Aus­tralia Day week­end. Happy birth­day to Peter Cobb who turned 70 and was given a sur­prise birth­day party at the Com­mu­nity Club. A great night was had by all.

Mary Curtin cel­e­brated her 80th birth­day and Thomas Whe­lan turned 18. A fam­ily gath­er­ing took place and a won­der­ful even­ing was en­joyed cel­e­brat­ing Mary’s mile­stone.
