Sorry to those folk who noticed my notes were missing from last week's paper. John and I made a quick weekend trip up north to do a couple of day's 'grandparent babysitting' of our young ones.
We stayed at home whilst their dad was busy competing in the Brisbane Trail Ultra of 100 miles, yes 100 miles - and mum was on check point duty.
Unfortunately Andrew didn't complete the course but still managed to cover 100 kilometres - just over 60 miles in the old scale - of the course before his knees gave up. We are still very proud of his effort.
He is all set to do another run in the coming weeks which will be 50kms.
We returned home Monday and had a good trip down the highway.
Local member's visit
Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead met with some seven locals (I have been told) when he visited Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall last Monday. He spoke on several topics. Unfortunately I didn't make it as we were still travelling home.
Belated birthday wishes
Happy belated birthday wishes to friend Jack Weekes who celebrated another birthday last Thursday - hope you had an enjoyable day and may you enjoy many more.
Tinonee Hall meeting
The July monthly meeting was held last evening (Tuesday) and it was learnt that the Christmas in July function for the Probus Club was cancelled due to COVID-19. They hope to re-schedule it for later in the year.
The hall committee was again the recipient of an Essential Energy Grant of $200 at the end of June which will be used to carry out further maintenance. We are very grateful for this support.
Museum annual meeting
Saturday, July 31 is the date set down for the 18th Annual General Meeting of Tinonee Historical Society but there has been a change of venue. The meeting, all being well, will be held at the Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall commencing at 1pm .
The change of venue is to allow for social distancing and it is also hoped to have a guest speaker.
Membership of the Society for 2021-2022 is now being accepted and is currently $15 per person.
Sincere condolences are extended to the family of the late Ella Kohlbach of The Bight whose funeral was held last week with burial in The Bight Cemetery beside her late husband Roland who pre-deceased her several years ago.
