There has been a sug­ges­tion that volun- teers might like to split their vol­un­teer days, so in­stead of work­ing from 9.30am un­til clos­ing around 3pm or 4pm, two vol­un­teers might work un­til 12.30pm, and an­other pair come in for the re­main­ing hours, each work­ing day.

The meet­ing is to dis­cuss who is in favour and who will be avail­able should this oc­cur.

If you can’t get to the meet­ing please let Chic know your views on the mat­ter, oth­er­wise it may be as­sumed that you will go along with the ma­jor­ity vote.

One of the high­lights of the evening was the stu­dents/teach­ers/par­ents re­lay, won by the teach­ers.

Stu­dents also or­gan­ised a ‘small treats’ stall to raise money for Car­i­tas’ Project Com­pas­sion.

A shared bar­be­cue fin­ished off a very en­joy­able evening.

Les­lie Ears­man has been in­un­dated with best wishes for her birth­day on Fe­bru­ary 7.

Les­lie has en­joyed quite an ex­ten­sion of the big day, with fam­ily and friends gath­er­ing for din­ner at the Royal Mail Ho­tel on the ac­tual date.

Les­lie’s sis­ter, Judy Ross, made a cake for the evening’s cel­e­bra­tion. Friends from the Unit­ing Church Fel­low­ship group also had a spe­cial af­ter­noon tea for Les­lie on their Thurs­day meet­ing day, with a birth­day cake made by Lor­raine Va­lerius.

Les­lie is grate­ful for all the at­ten­tion, and par­tic­u­larly for the beau­ti­ful cakes made by Judy and Lor­raine.

We wish her well for her ‘90 plus one’ birth­day.

The first meet­ing for 2019 for Jer­ilderie Red Cross will be held to­mor­row, at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at the Jer­ilderie Health Ser­vice. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come.

It is with sad­ness that we re­ceived news of the death of Sheila Sheed on Mon­day morn­ing, in Shep­par­ton.

Sheila and her hus­band Paul, who pre­de­ceased her, were a driv­ing force in Jer­ilderie when they ran their farming en­ter­prise ‘Pit­tfour’ on El­liot Lane, for many years.

Sheila was deeply in­volved in many lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, not the least of which was the Jer­ilderie Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety.

Many of the older gen­er­a­tion will have happy mem­o­ries of ap­pear­ing on stage, in drama, com­edy, and mu­sic hall events, un­der the sharp eye of Sheila, as pro­ducer/ di­rec­tor. Sheila was very in­volved with CWA, in which she held ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions, and was also in­volved with her church.

She was pres­i­dent of the Jer­ilderie branch of the Catholic Women’s League for many years, and served on the Dioce­san Com­mit­tee of that or­gan­i­sa­tion.

In lat­ter years Sheila and Paul opened up their gra­cious home as a home­stead restau­rant, with fine din­ing in the ‘Blue Room’ and the ‘Green Room’.

Sheila pro­vided sil­ver ser­vice and beau­ti­ful meals to peo­ple from far and wide. She also ar­ranged soirees and dra­matic per­for­mances to en­ter­tain guests while they dined.

It was a fam­ily af­fair, with hus­band Paul serv­ing drinks, and other fam­ily mem­bers roped in for big oc­ca­sions, such as wed­dings.

Af­ter Pit­tfour Home­stead Restau­rant closed, Sheila moved to Shep­par­ton to be closer to fam­ily and resided at the Ave Maria Vil­lage un­til her death.

Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to Jennifer, Si­mon, Ti­mothy, Su­san­nah, Justin and their fam­i­lies. Sheila will be sadly missed but hap­pily re­mem­bered.

It is un­der­stood that a funeral ser­vice will be held in Shep­par­ton on a date to be no­ti­fied, and in­ter­ment the fol­low­ing day at the Jer­ilderie ceme­tery.

This Sun­day Angli­can Church mem­bers will meet for the first com­bined ser­vice of the year with Unit­ing Church mem­bers, at St An­drew’s Unit­ing Church Jer­ilderie at 10am.

The com­bined ser­vices will con­tinue to be held on the third Sun­day of the month, with the ex­cep­tion of Easter.

The ser­vices al­ways con­clude with a shared morn­ing tea.

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to join the two church com­mu­ni­ties on the day.

Christo­pher Lock­hart and his fi­ance Clare Ward.
