Farewell and presentation

Former Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall president Ray Flippence and wife Alison were given a farewell afternoon tea by arts hall committee members, Tinonee Friendship Group, Tinonee Rural Fire Service and Tinonee Historical Society members October 13, at 3pm, in the hall.

Current hall president Janette Hayden spoke of the community involvement which Ray and Alison had during their 12 years living in Tinonee; and the projects and achievements for the hall committee in particular. She presented them with an engraved glass plaque in appreciation from the committee.

Laurie Murphy spoke of Ray and Alison’s time with the RFS as equipment officer and treasurer and the help they had given with the running of the annual Christmas Carols for a number of years.

Final speaker of the afternoon was Mrs Elaine Crossman from Tinonee Friendship Group who wished Ray and Alison all the best in their new Central Coast home, and said that they will be missed by all.

Farewell and good wishes in your new home Ray and Alison – hope to see you some time back up this way.

Deepest sympathy

The Langdown family of Cundletown are mourning the passing of Marie Elizabeth Langdown, who passed away on Tuesday, October 11, aged 86 years. Marie and husband Robert (Bob) had recently moved into Bishop Tyrell Place from their home in George Street, Cundletown. Marie was a devoted wife to Robert, and loving mother and mother-in-law to Peter and Sue, Julie and Steve, Catherine and John; and adoring grandma and great grandma. Marie’s funeral service was October 17 at 3pm at the Manning Great Lakes Memorial Gardens Chapel followed by cremation. Donations in lieu of flowers were accepted for cancer research.

Clearance sale catering

Five members of Tinonee Historical Society hosted the barbecue at the Plantation Lane, Cedar Party Clearance Sale last Saturday morning and were pleased with the results. Members Ray and Paul cooked up tasty sausages and onions, while members Jenny, Pam and Lois served hungry customers with sausage sandwiches, hot and cold drinks and home-made biscuits. Many thanks to Manning Valley PAL for allowing the society to conduct the barbecue and help with its fundraising efforts.

Birthday wishes

Couldn’t let this week’s notes go by without happy birthday wishes to husband John for his special day on October 22, when he is officially an OAP. Hope you will enjoy the day.
