Mount George Memos

I LOOK out the window and listen.
I see the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
I hear the birds singing and think all is well with the world.
It is, almost anyway, but not quite.
As per usual you don’t miss what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.
Due to illness our local General Store is shut again.
We all felt the loss last time it was closed for a while.
We miss the convenience of just popping into the shop to get something we need like bread, milk or petrol the way town people can do so easily.
Not many people do all their shopping there but we all make a convenience of it from time to time.
Whoever the illness refers to we hope they are well again soon and are completely well by March which is when the notice says the shop will open again.
We miss the little chats we have with Jason, Lance or whoever happens to be on duty when we call in.
They are part and parcel of our daily lives out here and the shop is a great place to run into a friend for a chat, too.
Once again we are all a little lost without this convenience.
Don’t modern day people take their conveniences for granted?
Cricket reportANOTHER good game last Saturday.
Our team played Wherrol Flat 1 at Central Park in a good game which Wherrol Flat won 169 runs to 154 which is not a disgrace for our players in any way, shape or form.
Our in-form bowlers were A Urquhart who took one wicket, M King who took two and I Solomon who took three.
Catches were taken by G King, J Chapman, N Chapman, D Selmes, I Solomon and Z Gibson who each took one and B Solomon who had two to his credit.
Our highest run scorers were J Chapman with 41 to his credit and N Chapman with25 so it really was a whole team effort with everyone doing his best on the day.
A commendable effort, boys.
Happy Birthday wishesTHIS week we say “best wishes and good luck” to only four people but once again we have a big age spread.
We have Emmen Smith, Coralee Ellem, Alan Weller and ex-Mount Georgian, Ben Taylor, becoming older by one year.
Enjoy your birthdays each one of you and we hope to be able to say the same thing to you all next February.
Red Cross newsTHE first meeting of our club will be held during March for Red Cross Calling and will be held at the home of Joyce Moore in Wingham. She or Lorraine Gibson will let us know the date as soon as arrangements are made.
We hope that holding the meetings at peoples’ homes will ease the burden of the same people having to travel 20 or so kilometres for functions and meetings as many of our members are all getting on in years and this only seems fair to them.
It does not mean we would not love to have new, younger members from the Mount George area join the club or just come along to have some fun and help the Red Cross.
We do hope to keep the Red Cross banner flying in Mount George in the future as it has for so many years.
We seem to have lost so much of our heritage (the post office, railway station, many dairy farms and the mill) in the past couple of decades it would be a shame to see this wonderful organisation go the way they did, wouldn’t it?
