HARD WORK PAYS OFF… The Forbes Rugby Club President’s Lunch saw its biggest year yet, with over 1,000 guests attending the fundraiser held last Saturday on the Forbes rugby grounds. An event of this magnitude can only be successful when organised by a great team such as the one pictured here.
A fun day of sports for the disabled: The annual Regional Sports for the Disabled will be held again this year for the 38th year in a row. This is always an exciting and happy day for all ages and all people with a disability. The occasion will be held at Red Bend Catholic College starting with morning tea at 9:30am followed by a March Past to the pipes of Brian Tisdell and the magnificent Red Bend drummers. This will be followed by walking races and novelty individual races for all ages and some team events as well. Molly Neilsen and a team of helpers, many whom are Red Bend students will serve up the morning tea. If you are on a special diet then you better bring it with you! Red Bend students all buck in and help with the starting whistle and the finishing ropes. All participants will receive a ribbon but there is always only one winner! Many participants have been known to help the other participants to get over the finish line with them. Come along and join in the fun on Wednesday, 8th May at Red Bend College Gymnasium. Participants can even compete in musical chairs and at the end of lunch when everyone has had enough there might even be a disco dance. Want to know more, call Dianne Decker on 6852 2902 or Jacqueline Coady on 6853 8153. All welcome.
