Northside Chapel Fundraiser: The Northside Chapel operates from the old Guide Hall in Johnson Street and brings games and Bible stories to young people in the area. The children are picked up from their homes by bus every second Sunday in the month and every Wednesday and are returned home afterwards. The gathering is growing and a bigger bus is required. To raise funds for the bigger bus the Chapel committee have decided on a sheep drive and are asking producers to give a lamb or sheep on sale day, the 10th April. Contact Ian Thomas for further information on 6851 4350.
This year’s Footy Tipping competition prize is donated by Aaron Acheson from Acheson’s Home Timber and Hardware. Aaron has kindly donated a family Weber valued at $788. Good luck to all the participants!
