Robert Webster MP officially opened Marulan & District Preschool in October 1986.
It was his first official duty.
The first committee was Liz Scaife (president), Dianne Fitzgerald (secretary) and Sally Cooper (treasurer).
Young parents throughout the years have worked hard to make the school attractive, educational and fun for our young citizens.
In 2002 the Preschool entered a Tip Top Sunblest Bread competition, collecting tokens from each loaf packet.
Not only did they collect 1782, but won $10,000 for equipment.
The building has changed little over the years and was paid for by residents, who purchased non-interest bearing debentures in order to build a doctor’s residence, surgery and waiting room.
With the help of Southern Portland Cement Co, it was built in 1953. It is presently owned by Goulburn Mulwaree Council and leased to Anglicare.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council will host a outreach meeting in the Memorial Hall on October 25 from 6.30pm; and in Tallong Hall on November 22 from 6.30pm.
The meeting allows the community to meet and discuss council related issues with councillors and senior staff.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Supper will be provided at its conclusion.
Every Friday morning a free community play group at Marulan Public School uses the school library and playground.
The families of preschool-aged children are welcome to join, 9.30am-11.am in term time. Queries: 4841 1573.
Mass will not be held at St Patrick’s church, Marulan on Sunday, October 9; but will be held at St Michael’s church, Bungonia at noon that day. All welcome.
Marulan & District Lions Club once again worked tirelessly for Daffodil Day at locations around the town and would like to thank: BP North, BP South, Truckstop 31, Marulan Post Office and Lorene and Trevor Jones, Maureen Cameron, Sue Glover, Alasdair McRea, Ray Dole, Freda and Walter Darda, Kelly Brown, Tom Hailstone, Debra Winner, and Kirk Hartup.
Winners of the Cancer Council teddy bears were: Rubi Butcher (K08), Rod Veigal (K25), and Carol Walker (K51).
Edith Medway of Crookwell is an author-historian.
Maureen Eddy will launch Edith’s latest book on Murray’s Flats on Saturday, September 24 at the CWA Rooms in Montague St, Goulburn from 2pm, with afternoon tea.
No doubt all is in Edith’s book, but when we were kids, the train stopped at Murray’s Flats station.
Our ancestors (prolific letter-writers, even in those days) wanted the school reopened, but the headmaster said, ‘They have free passes to go by rail to Goulburn’. And that was that!
Troy Martin was fourth in the senior boy’s Discus at the regional schools’ athletics carnival. An outstanding achievement, Troy!
The P&C thank everyone who supported the election day barbecue, especially Col Glacken for giving up his day to cook, and to Truckstop 31 for a generous donation.
If your children are interested in swimming or cricket, contact the Goulburn Amateur Swimming Club at nswswimmming.com.au or Danny Yeadon (cricket) on 4822 1529.
The Bungonia markets coincide with the long weekend and are always popular.
They are really fun and have everything from car boot items to wine, fresh food, cheeses, cakes, honey – and of course, a sausage sizzle and morning tea.
Tickets are still available for the coach trip to the New England area, October 24-29.
The cost is $990 twin share, and includes accommodation, meals and attractions.
You don’t need to spend a cent unless it is a memento at Armidale, Inverell, Tamworth, Nundle, Uralla, Werris Creek, Quirindi etc.
