Tinonee Red Cross News
THE first meeting of Tinonee and District Red Cross Branch was held last Tuesday February 3 at Tinonee Memorial School of Arts.
The meeting was chaired by vice president Dawn Case who welcomed a smaller than usual number of members due to some still being on holidays or others who had prior engagements.
Members paused to remember the passing of family members and friends since their last meeting in November and these included former Zone 4 Rep and long time Wingham Red Cross member Lorraine Simpson, local residents Beryl Cox and Jim Mitchison and member Jan Hayden’s father-in-law Albert Hayden and deepest sympathy is extended to these families.
Members were very pleased with the success of their annual Christmas hamper competition which raised more than $800 that was forwarded to head office for Christmas appeal and general funds.
The lucky winner was none other than Tinonee branch member Mary Zagame with second going to Geoff Fuller and Mrs Oades from Bootawa and Hillville respectively – congratulations we hope you enjoyed your extra Christmas goodies.
The first invitation for 2015 has been received from Taree Red Cross who will be hosting a ‘shrove Tuesday Pancake Brunch’ on Tuesday February 17 at Taree Presbyterian Church Hall from 9.30am with some tasty savoury and sweet pancakes being served.
The day will also include a display of fairy dolls and salt and pepper shakers.
Several members are planning on attending this event.
Plans were discussed for Tinonee’s first fundraiser and this will be the annual ‘St Patrick’s Day Luncheon’ on Tuesday March 17.
The branch’s major fundraiser for 2015 is Red Cross Calling Appeal which is sure to be a lot of fun with lots of green and orange colours, great food and entertainment on the day that will be held at Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall from 12 noon onwards.
Further details can be had from president Judy Cluss 6553 1450 or secretary Pam Muxlow 6553 1055 on the cost $15 per person and other details including bookings.
This is always a great day and very popular so get in early with your names.
The next meeting of the Branch will be held on Tuesday February 24 when members and new members will be made most welcome.

SHROVE Tuesday will be celebrated with a pancake dinner on Tuesday February 17 commencing at 5.30pm in the Fellowship Centre at St Matthew’s Anglican Church Wingham and it will be a ‘bring and share event’.
Ash Wednesday will also see a service being held at St Matthew’s – time is yet to be confirmed but possibly around 6pm – hope to have details in next week’s column.
MEMBERS of Tinonee Friendship Group met for the first time in 2015 at the Tinonee Memorial Hall last Wednesday and planned a number of events for the coming year and the first of these will be a visit to the Recycling Centre at Tuncurry in March – this should be an interesting experience for all who attend.
Country Music Concert
THE country music concerts which had been held at Tinonee Memorial School of Arts Hall for the last four years have now moved to Mondrook Hall and the first of these were held on Sunday afternoon last.
I am not sure how it all went as I haven’t had any reports but hope it was a success for the hall committee.

Happy Valentine’s Day
THIS Saturday will be Valentine’s Day and to all the romantics, may you have a Happy Valentine’s Day.
We don’t celebrate it in our household as John and I celebrate our wedding anniversary on February 9 and this year it is our 41st.
