Stu­dents in­vited to en­ter An­zac comp.

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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.

En­tries are be­ing taken for the 29th Good Friday Ap­peal Char­ity Golf Day to be held on April 19 at the Jer­ilderie Sports Club.

Cost for the 18 hole com­pe­ti­tion is $100 per team, with hit off from 7.30am to noon.

The nine hole comp is $60 per team, with hit off from noon to 2.30pm.

All green fees are do­nated to the Good Friday Ap­peal. En­tries are be­ing taken at the club. Call in or ring in your pre­ferred hit off times — 58861445 (af­ter 4pm).

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
