Noel had a great day and enjoyed everyone's company. Special guests included his sister Lettie Aston and nephew Ted Aston from Thuddungra, granddaughter Emma Hall and partner Rainer from Canberra, grandson Ian Bernard from East Corrimal, granddaughter Cherie, John, Bella and Nicholas Grigg from Leeton all travelled to help Noel celebrate. The beautiful birthday cake - a chocolate mud cake was made by Sharyn Bradtke.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Former resident Jim Stephanis and his wife Pam from Rutherford decided to go their first trip in their new rig. Following more than 300mm of rain, they headed off to Merriwa and stayed overnight in Ballimore. Day 2 they visited Parkes and Tomingley and on Day 3 Jim saw a sign to Grenfell, hence all their plans changed and they arrived back in his home town.
Whilst home they enjoyed the wonderful facilities at the Free Camp at the Lions' Park at the Historic Railway Station. Jim was seen chatting and catching up with many in the street and enjoyed a game of bowls.
They returned home after nine days shake down. They tried out everything in their new big toy, except their oven and baby BBQ - they said it was too cold to cook outside and pub meals were too good to pass up. Pam thoroughly enjoys her bowls and is a Club Champion and has also played for State.
WOMEN IN BUSINESS: "On Saturday one of our goals for the year was ticked off and we have been dancing with glee ever since." Paige from the Tin Cupboard said.
Their goal was to bring a group of people together to have fun and to walk away feeling fabulous. They also wanted to support other female owned and run businesses within the area. The Pink Galah joined them from Cobar for a fun filled night of pot painting held at Jacaranda House. They enjoyed yummy nibbles from Unwind. Not only were they able to support a small female business but they supported three different small country businesses at once.
"Thank you to everyone who supported us in the children's and adult's classes. I was blown away by the talent," Paige said. "Thank you, Sig for hosting a wonderful and fun event and getting this very non creative person to walk away with a pretty funky pot. We can't wait to do it again."
