If I had a penny (or any sort of 21st century currency that would actually be of use to me) for every remark I’ve heard this month about how close the mid way point of 2017 is… I wouldn’t have as much currency as I did post–Mutton Cup last year, but it would be a fair bit!
Yep, June is a-knockin’ at the door.
And what a ripper June it’s going to be! Hopefully the weather is kind to our farming friends so they can wrap up ripping up real soon and rip into one of the many ripper events and activities lined up around town this month. How many times is too many times to use the word rip? Rip.
On offer this month at the Quairading CRC is a Social Media Workshop for businesses and organisations with Tori Kopke from WBN on Wednesday 14th June, Cabernet & Canvas on Friday 16th June (it’s sitting, and drinking wine, and painting a canvas, with heaps of help, oh and also cheese!) and a Farm Office Efficiencies Workshop delivered by PinG (Partners in Grain) on Thursday 22nd June. We’ve also got three more Boogie Roos sessions this term (and three more in Term Three) from 9:30am on Friday 26th May, 9th June and 23rd June.
The BreastScreen WA Van will be parked at the Quairading CRC from Wednesday 28th June until Tuesday 4th July providing FREE mammograms. Appointment booking details can be found on page 27.
Did you know the Quairading Club is turning SEVENTY this year! There’s a great snippet from a 1964 paper and details on how the Club is celebrating this momentous occasion on pages 19 and 20.
The Quairading Golf Club have been hard at work planning what sounds to be an EPIC day of golf and fun on Saturday 24th June. The Act-Belong-Commit Invitation Day is in celebration of 50 years of Junior Golf and the 10th Scotty J Memorial Day. One of my big claims to fame, which I unashamedly make quite often, is taking out Girls Junior Club Champion one time many years ago (never mind that there were only two of us competing and I just happened to have one less 10-with-a-circle on the day!). Regardless, I’m excited to make a return to the course and I hope to see lots of you there too!
Keeping using the hashtag #quairading when you’re posting local photos on social media—our readers are LOVING the Tagged Around Town snaps on page 6!
Yep that’ll do. Same time, same place next month. Carry on.
