Wilby drought re­lief night

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - On The Land -

A free twi­light bar­be­cue was held at Wilby Hall on Fri­day, Novem­ber 23.

The Wilby Hall Com­mit­tee in­sti­gated the event so that all the com­mu­nity could come to­gether to join neigh­bours and friends and take time out to for­get about the drought and the poor sea­son which has af­fected all the com­mu­nity.

It was a great so­cial oc­ca­sion with a sub­stan­tial num­ber in at­ten­dance to en­joy good food and a re­lax­ing evening. Pres­i­dent of the com­mit­tee, Robert Glover com­mented that it was pleas­ing to see the hall be­ing well used as re­cently the com­mit­tee was suc­cess­ful in ob­tain­ing fund­ing through Moira Shire Coun­cil bud­get to re­fur­bish the build­ing. It is ex­pected that works will com­mence early in 2019.

As an added bonus on the evening was, Tungamah Lions Club rep­re­sen­ta­tives at­tend­ing to demon­strate some sim­ple to make fruit fly traps and dis­trib­ute in­for­ma­tion kits to each house­hold. It was agreed that if most peo­ple in Wilby con­structed a trap we would have an idea of the num­bers and can bet­ter deal with any in­fes­ta­tions.
