Patron visits Museum

Tinonee Historical Society Inc enjoyed a visit last Wednesday from their patron, Carolyn Fazio, who is currently visiting Australia from her home in Ohio, USA.

Carolyn spent a couple of hours speaking with the executive members and caught up on activities since her last visit.

She was pleased to see the progress with the display shed which is nearing completion.

The Society is holding it’s next monthly meeting on Thursday, March 22, and it hoped to confirm the next garage sale date as May 5.

Thankfully the recent rain has brought the garden along and thanks also to members Helen and Ron who have put in countless hours getting it back into order and the flowers are looking lovely.

A small group from Northcott Services recently paid a visit and enjoyed their time at the Museum.

Groups large and small can be catered for by the members who just need notice of their intending visit so members can be on hand to welcome and show them around.


Deepest sympathy is extended to the family of the late Yvonne Edna Ross of Manning Point whose funeral was conducted at St. Luke’s Anglican Church Tinonee, by Rev Brian Ford on Thursday, March 8, followed by burial in the Tinonee General Cemetery. Family and friends later gathered at the Tinonee Memorial School of Arts for the wake.

Birthday Wishes

Some special people in my life will be enjoying their birthday this week, firstly my Aunt Gwen Greaves who celebrates on Friday, March 16, and to cousin Denyse Budd, and friend Bev Clancy, who both have another birthday on St Patrick’s Day, March 17. Hope you all enjoy the day and have many more.

St Patrick’s Day Luncheon

Tinonee Red Cross’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon will be held tomorrow, Thursday 15, at Tinonee Memorial Hall, and all funds raised will be going towards the 70th anniversary of the Red Cross Calling Appeal. I hope to have a full report and some pictures next week.
