The Berrigan Hospital Auxiliary held its monthly meeting on Monday, August 22. Its upcoming street stall on September 16 was discussed, and the first prize will be a crockpot.

One of the group’s main fundraiser­s will be the Melbourne Cup luncheon, to be held at the Community Club on Melbourne Cup Day. Prizes on the day will include a lucky door prize, best dressed lady and the best hat of the day. There will be more informatio­n to come in the following weeks.


On Friday, the Uniting Church held a street stall in aid of Frontier Services and a huge amount of $950 was raised. The members of our church would like to thank all those wonderful people who supported the stall and made donations. The raffle winner was Renee Paine, who then donated it on.
