A Community Dinner and Fireworks, and more

Good morning all,

Things are very quiet as far as activities go out in our neck of the woods it seems. Hot weather, winds, and a bit of dust thrown in for good measure and where do you go from there?

We do have a couple of items happening here in our little town though.

On the 4th. December, one of our enterprising school teachers, Lily, is launching a “Photo Display” along each side of the old lift span bridge here in Wilcannia. It starts with a BBQ in the evening in front of the bridge, and the display will be up until the 16th.Dec. All photos displayed are the work of the school children, showing off their talents. So if passing do drop by and have a look. Have attached the flyer.

The other big ticket item is on Friday 13th. at Burke Oval, and is an evening show, featuring “A Community Dinner and Fireworks”, all are welcome if again you’re passing through.

Unfortunately I haven’t got my hands on anything else exciting for you all. Must be winding down for Santa coming! Maybe we put out hay for the reindeers this year??

New coffee trailer, December Mungo programme

Good morning everyone,

Really don’t know where to start here, ‘cept to say ‘we’re home’. Still gathering up what is happening so please forgive me for a short note this week, will do better when my feet hit the ground.

Would really appreciate anyone’s input that I can use.

I do have the Mungo programme for December, which is one of 2 attachments.

Now I do urge anyone in this area to support the Ivanhoe community with their bid to have their low risk prison transformed into something that will benefit the town and outback. They are a great community and deserve our support. So have a think what you would suggest the site be used for and put in a submission by 5 PM on Wednesday. You can do it on line.

Two bits of local news, we almost have our brand new public toilets in the main street here in Wilcannia up and running, and I believe our new coffee trailer will be operating at Centacare  opposite Baker Park by the end of the week. Please drop in and have a yarn.
