Youngsters enjoyed the activities at the Uniting Church holiday program.

Members of the Jerilderie Hospital Auxiliary welcomed Tania Roe, activities co-ordinator for the MPS, and a new member of the Auxiliary to their recent monthly meeting.

Tania spoke about her role with the residents of the Health Service and plans for future activities.

A Blumes fashion showing of autumn/winter styles will be held on Thursday, May 10, in the Community Centre.

Entry will be $5, with a lucky door prize and a raffle. Morning tea at 10am, followed by the fashion showing.

As this is one of only a few regular fundraisers for the Auxiliary your support would be appreciated.

The Uniting Church holiday program at Jerilderie racecourse was a great success.

The 28 visitors from Wesley were an amazing group of young people filled with joy and enthusiasm.

Thirty local children attended and had a great time, learning about God’s love, singing songs, canoeing, playing games, doing craft, cooking and getting to know the kids from Sydney.

The Uniting Church members would like to thank all the wonderful helpers who donated cakes and slices, helped make lunches every day, and ran some of the activities.

On the last night the local children and their parents gathered for a barbecue and an opportunity to share what they had enjoyed most.

Members of the Jerilderie branch of CWA have been making tiny cardigans and beanies for babies born at Wodonga Hospital.

The branch recently received a postcard from the families and staff of Wodonga Special Care Nursery, and the Ronald McDonald Family room, thanking the members of CWA for their ongoing donations of the baby clothes which are given to every baby who passes through their doors.

The card was printed with photos of babies wearing the cardigans and tiny hats.

More than 100 people enjoyed the Bogan Bingo night held last Saturday at the Jerilderie Civic Hall.

It was an opportunity for a social get-together for the Jerilderie Football and Netball Club.

It was a bingo night with a difference, with the guests encouraged to turn up in ‘bogan’ gear.

The professional comedy act from Melbourne encouraged audience participation, providing a lot of laughter, and there was much positive feedback about the evening’s entertainment.
