Golf Day was a great success; everyone had a great day out on the course. A huge THANK YOU to Helen, Gerald, Ross and Bob for putting in the hard yards on the day. Also all the other members who arranged sponsors for the day, Thank You. We are waiting for the final figures to come in for funds raised for Katie Rose Hospice. Great work team.

The combined project at MacKillop Village has taken a new tack, looking into the corrugated steel colour bond style beds as an alternative the building timber sleeper beds.

We had our Biggenden Visit last weekend and what a great weekend. I firstly would like to thank Kathy for helping organize this event. Thank you to all who came along and made it such a great time. It was great to have Ron and Jill Garrett come along and share this weekend with us. Thank you to all who helped out over the weekend; it really was a relaxing time. A Big Thank You to Gordon and Kay for having us over to the farm and showing us around, you really made feel at home. We drove around the farm checking everything out. It was fun and interesting to see how as Gordon says he relaxes on his property, yeah right. There is so much to do.

We had a BBQ on Sunday night and what a feast. Gordon generously supplied the meat (half a bullock) and had given me $50 to supply salads. Well there was a bit of a twist, Vi from the Biggenden Hospital Auxiliary was supplying the salads for us and she had decided to donate them. So not taking no for an answer we decided to pass the hat around the group and raised $180 and threw in Gordon’s $50 to give a grand total of $230 and donated it to the Auxiliary. Vi was over the moon and was so thankful. Now there’s a Win/Win. Kathy had also arranged a trivia for the night and was very entertaining. Great time had by all.
