Students invited to enter Anzac comp.
The Jerilderie RSL has invited students from both schools to participate in the annual Anzac Day competition.
This year’s theme is World War I, and there are choices of either writing an essay or a poem, or creating a project relating to the theme.
Whatever the choice, submissions are due into the schools by next Wednesday, April 10.
The Jerilderie and Finley Lifeballers met at the sporting complex last Wednesday for an enjoyable morning of lifeball.
The Jerilderie Billa-Bongas and the Finley Follies rotated through six 10 minute sessions, giving everyone a good chance to play, and the spectators some entertainment.
As always, there were some local rules which needed explanation, with discussions during and after the game.
There were about 24 participants, including two brave men who went along.
While Jerilderie players are old hands at the game after 15 years, Finley is a new group and has a team of enthusiastic players.
It is just what is needed to encourage enjoyment and participation in this sport, based loosely on netball, but designed specifically for older players.
At the end of play a delicious morning tea, provided by players from both teams, was enjoyed.
Good conversation and a couple of jokes from the floor helped to decide to do this again.
The Jerilderie Football and Netball club is excited to invite everyone to the 2019 PDFL season launch tomorrow at the Monash Park clubrooms.
A barbecue tea will be available from 6.30pm for juniors, and 7pm for seniors, at $10 a head or $20 a family.
The launch will include jumper presentations to the footballers, introduction of many new players to the club, and the naming of the netball and football teams for this weekend’s game versus Katamatite at Katamatite.
The captains of each team will be announced as well, with addresses from the presidents of the football and netball clubs.
There is a great vibe around the club this year and the JFNC is keen to get as many community members involved in the club to support the town teams.
Tidy Towns will meet tomorrow evening at the Luke Park office at 6pm. New members will be made most welcome.
Young people interested in taking part in the Murrumbidgee Council’s movie day on Sunday, April 14 to celebrate Youth Week are reminded that bookings should be made by this Friday at the Jerilderie Council Office.
Two films — Bumblebee and Fantastic Beasts — will be shown at the Jerilderie Civic Hall, starting at 2.30pm.
There will be lots of other activities.

It has recently come to notice that there is a shortage of small size, second hand (and cheaper) footy boots available for some of the younger players.
A suggestion was made that perhaps families with players who have outgrown their boots might consider passing them on (the boots, not the players) to the Vinnies shop.
People do come looking for second hand footy boots, which only get one season’s wear as young feet tend to grow at a rapid rate.
If you have any boots suitable for ages eight upwards, you might like to clear your shelves and help someone at the same time.
Vinnies volunteers’ rosters for the next couple of months are ready to be picked up at the shop.
Tania Roe will be holding a raffle stall tomorrow to continue selling tickets in the Easter raffle to raise money for the Diversional Therapy activities at the hospital.
Hospital Auxiliary members will be helping sell tickets outside IGA from 9.30am.
At the recent monthly meeting of the Jerilderie Hospital Auxiliary, members moved to purchase a two seater mobility scooter for the Health Service.
It will enable the diversional therapist to take residents out on the town, where once it might have been too difficult.
The auxiliary is also purchasing a urine tester for the hospital.
There will be no monthly meeting of the Hospital Auxiliary in April as it falls on Anzac Day.
The May meeting will be brought forward to start at 1pm on May 23, as it will be the same day as the Biggest Morning Tea.
A big cheerio to Chic Dallas who is back home after a period in Wagga hospital. We hope she is soon feeling great again
