Bob Henderson and Alan Larpent in front of the cenotaph at the Remembrance Day Service 11.11.2014.
Gerrard Gunn gave a small speech and encouraged people to use the RSL as there is a possibility it may
close otherwise. The service is to remember those who served and gave up their lives to
provide us with the life we have today. We honour and respect them. Lest We Forget.
Bike riders from Paceline rode through Dunolly on 10 November as part of a week long tour to
promote awareness and raise funds for cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat).

What sort of fool waves a flag in the face of a hypedup racehorse which has just run a huge race? Can he/
she be banned the same as foo"e fools are?
Did you hear on the news about the fellows who stole
very valuable BALES of wool? They were BAILED un"l
later in the year.
I am on the horns (or wings) of a dilemma. The other
evening I no"ced that our resident blackbird was
dar"ng in and out of the green house a lot. As I was
pre#y sure that its nest was in the climbing geranium
as I had heard them there, I wondered what was going
on. So I sneaked over (no mean feat) and peered in,
scaring the wits out of a fairly large grumpy-looking
grey chick that has a long way to go before it is a black
bird. Do I con"nue to water the plants in there and
hope the baby gets used to me, or do I risk the life of
my plants by staying away? The behaviour of the
parent bird was fascina"ng. It took nearly half an hour
of bird fli%ng around the greenhouse pretending not
to be interested in anything inside before it landed
some distance away, hopped around behind pots so it
was hidden from the house, then darted in to check on
the chick. Clearly, as I have noted before, birds are not

My sister and I have been pu!ng this story together a"er
reading about the Indian Hawkers in the Welcome Record.
We are both in our late ‘80s but our memories are s#ll with
us. It was a very interes#ng day when Meir Khan called. (see
page 10).
We are enjoying the W.R., congratula#ons on the photos in
colour, it was a surprise to open the envelope and see
them. I could see Jean who has been my great friend for
many years and the other two ladies. Well done, beau#ful
colour, can’t believe this has all come together for you.
‘They say all good things come to those who wait’ and you
are certainly deserving of it all.

Vicky Frizzell’s ar#cle on the cork tree in the WR on
5 November is very true. Its beauty is only appreciated once
you get under the wonderful branches which kiss the ground.
To trim the tree would make it much easier to see its
fabulous trunk but what would be destroyed will never be
replaced and we and our children and their children will be
robbed of the experience of stepping into a wonderland.
They say there are fairies at the bo&om of the garden which
I’m not sure of, but I could believe that they live under our
cork tree.
I also agree that any interven#on could very well kill this
wonderful old tree. We should leave Mother Nature alone –
she is doing a great job on her own.
Last month I took a meandering trip from Pyramid Hill to
Forrest via the Golden Triangle.
I stopped for morning tea at Dunolly and was struck by the
friendliness and helpfulness of the locals and the feel of
vibrancy about the town and having heard about Buckley’s
of Dunolly, I decided to return.
My mother and I enjoyed every minute of the ‘Strangers in
Paradise’ recital on Saturday, then the interes#ng drive to
Bealiba and lovely accommoda#on at Evans Hotel, where
the hospitality was another winner for the district.
The Broadway Market on Sunday capped off a beaut
weekend. Thanks Dunolly and District.

Amazing events keep happening at Buckley’s in Dunolly.
The latest recital was a really wonderful feast of music.
Raymond Khong, Ian Cousins and May Gavin entertained
the enthralled audience with excerpts from some wellknown composers, the tenor and baritone voices blending
so beau#fully and with a masterly accompaniment.
We were also most fortunate to hear Rachel Buckley
accompanying the ar#sts in their final rendi#on. Rachel has
a beau#ful voice and we should hear it more o"en.
Dunolly is so fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy
such regular entertainment. It is a shame more local people
are not a&ending as the majority of audiences seem to be
from Maryborough and elsewhere.

We were shocked to hear that Sam and Phoebe have
resigned from the Dunolly Market. As new residents to
Dunolly they got involved with the community and put a lot
of #me and effort into the market.
Thank you for having a go at least you tried.

I agree with Vicky Frizzell’s le&er from last week. Any
published no#ce or ar#cle should be accompanied by an
iden#fying by-line of the individual or the authorising
commi&ee. I was confused by the no#ce calling a mee#ng at
the Town Hall with no iden#fying by-line. I also agree with
Vicky about the community consulta#on regarding issues
such as the Cork Tree. The preliminary discussions with locals
at the Neighbourhood house iden#fied that there is strong
local interest in protec#ng the tree and the Railway sta#on.
This early stage is about gathering facts and informa#on to
present to the community. We have a strong and dedicated
group of ar#sts, writers and actors in this region and our aim
is to share ideas and concerns. Everyone is welcome to join
the Arts group and have a say – you don’t need to be a
prac#cing ar#st. There was no by-line on the ar#cle on
protec#ng the heritage sites of the region, but it was not our
Arts group – much as we value all our historic monuments.
Rachel Buckley
In response to Vicky Frizzell asking who was seeking
Heritage lis#ng for the monument in Gordon Gardens. At
this point there is no commi&ee set up. The photograph
was taken from Dunolly & District History Facebook site
where an individual was expressing an interest in preserving
our historic sites and wanted to generate interest in
Heritage Lis#ng.

Re Rosie’s Ramble about crows and their chicks; Rosie asked
if anyone knew why we don’t see them at ground level with
mum and dad. My ‘Birdo’ friend told me we don’t have
crows here only ravens. I am not sure what area Rosie’s
crows were in but the answer is the same – young crows and
ravens are raised totally in the nest and when they fledge
they look exactly like mum and dad, only smaller. I hope this
helps in understanding how even our bird life goes about
raising their families in different ways.

Sadly at our last mee!ng the resigna!ons of Sam
Bekhit and Phoebe McLean were tabled. Sam and
Phoebe have provided enthusias!c leadership as our
President and Vice President of the commi"ee. Both
have a wonderful vision for the progress of Dunolly.
Our commi"ee has enjoyed working with them and
wish them well in the future.
As a result we had the task of elec!ng new office
bearers. President is Tony Mullan and Vice President
is Lisa Mercer. Both were elected unanimously.
The Dunolly Community Market Commi"ee welcomes
any interested members. If you have any good
sugges!ons as to how the market could be improved
please come along or contact any of the current
members. Our next mee!ng will be at 7.00 pm at the
SES mee!ng room on 3 December.
Our next market on 14 December will be our
Christmas Market, and I have it on good authority that
a gentleman in a red suit will be visi!ng. Come along
and join in the fun. At this market a raffle will be
drawn of a Christmas Hamper donated by the stall
holders and the traders of the town. Tickets for the
raffle will be $1.00 and will be on sale from now un!l
the market. Proceeds of the raffle will be donated to
the Annual Children’s Christmas Party on Sunday 21
The Dunolly Kindergarten are organising a cake stall
for the market. Come along and support this small but
hard working group in our community. The hosts for
the BBQ will be the Dunolly SES. Another community

It is o#en the way that, when you look upon a finished piece
of work – a quilt, a wedding cake, a pain"ng for example –
you accept and admire what is in front of you and give li$le
thought to the crea"ve energy behind it. The same can be
said of landscapes.
When I first visited Marion Da Costa’s property a few years
ago, I thought the bush surrounding it was a beau"ful haven
– Dunolly-dry but alive with waving grasses, sturdy trees,
birds, lizards and kangaroos. I heard more about her
revegeta"on work over the following years but it wasn’t
un"l I read her recently published book that I really
appreciated the greatness of her achievement.
Titled My Place: Bare Paddock to Bush, Re-establishing
Na!ve Vegeta!on in Central Victoria, The book describes
the rehabilita"on process Marion has followed since
purchasing her 17 acre property in 2003. Wri$en as a guide
for others who would like to restore land to its na"ve state,
be it part of a farm or a town backyard, Marion provides not
only her own story but lots of "ps to follow and an excellent
list of references.
When beginning such a project, Marion recommends
establishing specific points around the area from which to
take an annual photo. O#en changes are so gradual as to be
unno"ced unless a pictorial record is maintained to li# and
inspire one when weeding becomes a knee- s"ffening chore.
The photographs included in her book amply demonstrate
the changes on Marion’s land in the past 10 years and the
value of maintaining a pictorial record.
Marion believes that it will be some years before she
finishes her revegeta"on plans and probably 50 – 100 years
before the ecosystem re-establishes itself. But as a
commi$ed conserva"onist, she is ac"vely contribu"ng to
the building of a healthy environment for our future
genera"ons. There is much to learn from her work. Her book
should be of great interest to those who know her (she is a
dedicated volunteer within the community life of Dunolly);
those who have embarked on similar journeys of land
restora"on and, more par"cularly, those who want to avail
themselves of her knowledge and experience in order to
begin their own project.
Copies of Marion’s book are available from

The 67 annual mee!ng of Dunolly Branch was held at
the SES rooms on Wednesday 5 November. We
welcomed Group President Ayron Teed; Group
Secretary Rachel Mitchell, and Group Treasurer Sandra
Webb to the mee!ng with pre"y posies made by
Heather Weir and Rhonda Heather. We were delighted
to welcome four new members to the branch. Ayron
was accompanied by two visitors who spoke during the
mee!ng about efforts to get CWA involved in working
for refugee women through the SIFFT commi"ee.
Group president Ayron conducted the elec!on of
Office Bearers for 2015. They are:
President – Jan Wa"s; Secretary – Rosemary Mecredy;
Treasurer – Leanne Mullan; Interna!onal Officer –
Rhonda Heather.
We then heard the Group President’s address summing
up the year in the Group and the Branch Secretary’s
report was also read.
A%er a very tasty lunch and a deal of socialising, our
visitors le% for the AGM at Newstead.
At our regular mee!ng, sugges!ons were put forward
for items for the monthly mee!ng and also for ideas
for cra% days etc.
The winners of the compe!!ons for 2014 were:
Flower from your garden – Heather Weir
Interes!ng item – Rosemary Mecredy.
We are very glad to have Rhonda back looking hale and
hearty. Since the mee!ng Lorraine has been in
hospital. We do hope she will be well and home before
Anyone who would like to join us in CWA will find us at
the RSL hall on Wednesday 3 December at 11.00am
followed by our Christmas Break-up at the Golden
Grain Café on Broadway at 12ish.
We have all been saddened by the death of Ann
Stevenson. She joined CWA Vic in 1939 in the Mallee
and was s!ll a member at Dunolly when she died – a
total of 75 years. We will remember a happy lady with
a lovely laugh – who could make a mean slice.

On a picturesque sec!on of the Avoca River lies a
sca"er of houses. A sign says that you are in Na"e
Yallock ‘Big Water Li"le Plain.’ The sign says it all really.
The football ground though very dry, looked great.
There is a new sec!on added to the clubrooms, and the
grounds are well maintained. Do"ed around the
recrea!on reserve are wonderful shade trees. We
parked under an enormous grey box and Marion fell in
love immediately. She declared it had the biggest girth
12 November 2014
she had ever seen on a grey box. Further on, half
hidden by the leaves on a branch of a red gum were
some very fluffy looking corellas, leading us to think
they were this year's babies. Near the entrance to the
recrea!on reserve is the Na"e Yallock hall which looks
in good repair. There is also a plaque commemora!ng
150 years of white se"lement in the area. The first
se"ler was Mervyn Archdale in 1841.
It is not possible to get down to the water at this point,
but a beau!ful cool breeze was blowing up the river.
Marion iden!fied the call of a cuckoo while we stood
on the river bank enjoying the breeze. Across the road
a deligh)ul old building beckoned. It is now a shed
with original roof shingles showing through. In a former
life it must have been a very appealing church. Around
the corner another old church has been converted into
a home. Nearby is the war memorial. A quick count
showed twenty-six people enlisted from this area for
the 1914-18 war. That is a lot from such a small
The undoubted jewel in Na"e Yallock's crown is the
beau!ful surrounds of the primary school. Many
genera!ons of parents have worked hard to provide
the many shady areas for children to play, and families
to use when a"ending school func!ons. Someone has
even constructed a miniature old slab hut.
Never having looked around Na"e Yallock before I was
amazed at how pre"y the li"le community is. The
community spirit is obvious in the well maintained
school and recrea!on reserve. It was a pleasure to
spend !me there.

Our big girls who free range out the back paddocks
have been without a rooster for a few months now,
but there’s been some crowing out there lately! What
is going on?
They have been laying well, and I can pre"y much tell
whose eggs are whose. I know who the two
Araucanas are – their eggs are a pre"y pale blue
colour; the two Light Sussex are – their eggs are a pale
pinky colour with white speckles; the two Light Sussex
cross Barnevelder are – their eggs are dark brown; but
the four Barnevelder girls – their eggs being different
shades of brown with darker speckles, have not been
as regular and I’m not sure if they are all laying as
there has not been four eggs on the one day.
When I was out there the other day checking for eggs,
a Barnie hen that was close by started crowing. I went
over to her and watched, she kept crowing, stretching
out her neck as she ‘cock-a-doed’ (as apposed to ‘cock
-a-doodle-dooing’). I’m sure she was saying, ‘I’m a
rooster, and I don’t lay eggs.’ So I told her, ‘I know
you’re not a rooster, now stop that crowing and go lay
an egg!’ She stopped, looked at me, hung her head
and walked off. At least I know which one it is now,
the one with the bigger wa"les and comb, and I know
she’s a hen as she has laid eggs before.
Now this was a real a"empt at crowing, not an ‘I’ve
just laid an egg’ song, so I googled ‘crowing hens’ and
although some of the posts said it was quite rare,
going by all the comments it doesn’t seem to be that
rare at all. Condensing the comments down here is
what I found.
– Most (but not all) crowing hens come from an all girl
flock and tend to become the leader and protector of
the group.
- Most (but not all) are older hens.
- Most (but not all) s%ll lay eggs.
- Some said that they can even change sex and could
poten%ally produce viable sperm.
- One ques%oned the ‘playing around with breeding so
much’ that we are ge&ng gender-confused chickens.
- One suggested that maybe the crowing hens have a
tumor or damaged ovaries.
Some of the remedies were – Wait it out for a moult,
the hormonal change that goes with moul%ng helps to
correct it.
- Give her away to live with a flock of bigger or just
different chooks so she’s not top hen.
- Get a ‘real’ rooster.
Now this is not a new thing, as some talked of hearing
their grand parents talk about having crowing hens, a
Vol 29 Iss 42 Page 7
few even telling of a rhyme that they use to say, ‘A
whistling rooster and a crowing hen, never come to no
good end.’
Has anyone else encountered a ‘manly’ hen? If so,
then unless you or your neighbors don’t like listening
to the crowing or you’re not allowed crowing birds
where you live, I think just leave her be. She may just
‘keep the peace’ in the flock and protect the other
hens as well as maybe giving you a few eggs. Think of
her as your ‘claytons’ rooster – the rooster you have
when you don’t have a rooster. I’ll let you know if she
is or when she starts laying again, but in the
mean%me; I don’t mine a bit of cock-a-doodle-dooing.
Peace, love and happiness from Sankalpa

bigger than usual wa•les and comb.

It goes back to the 1940s when we lived in Dunolly, we
looked forward to his visits. He had to go to
Melbourne to buy all his goods from Payne’s big store
in Bourke St., where our Dad had a brother who
worked in the store and he introduced Meir Khan to
Uncle Roy, who always helped him get his supplies
together and they were then sent to Dunolly by rail.
Mum bought many yards of material from his wagon,
to make our clothes. It had drop-down sides, secured
by chains, so the materials could be measured. She
also bought unbleached calico that had to be washed
many !mes before she made it into sheets and pillow
At that !me, my sister Beryl and I had branched into
the work force and we were able to buy our first fullylined woollen top coats. Beryl had a lovely green
checked one and mine was blue; we paid fi#een
pounds each for them. Our late sister, Joan, had a nice
pink candlewick dressing gown which she gave to my
daughter Jill and she s!ll has the gown. In the other
end of the wagon he had boots and men’s working
clothes, and a few groceries and plenty of spices,
especially curry powders. He was a nice gentleman
and he told our Dad that when he got to a certain age,
he must return to India, because he didn’t want to die
in Australia.

Celebra!ng 145 Years in Dunolly.
First Permanent Minister.
Rev G P Despard was appointed in September 1863 and
conducted his first service on 18 October, 1863. On his
arrival with his wife and four children, there was only
the school building on the land.
Rev. Despard galvanised the Church members into
fundraising and a Parsonage was erected by June 1865.
Also during his !me at Dunolly a brick church was
erected at Eddington and the commencement of the
present day St John’s at Dunolly. In 1868 Rev Despard
transferred to St Paul’s, Bendigo.
Parsonage: Fundraising commenced in 1864 and
sketches for the proposed Parsonage were submi#ed
to the architects. Tenders were let in October 1864 and
the building completed in June 1865. A single storey
house with a slate roof was erected including a cellar,
seven feet deep under the servants’ quarters, entered
by a trapdoor through the pantry.
An underground tank was installed in April 1866 and
stables were also added to the building by November
As the Parish Centre moved to Maryborough, the
building was sold and is owned privately. The present
owners have restored the building and grounds.
During the 1960s a modern four bedroom
weatherboard house was built on land in front of the
original vicarage. This building was also sold when the
Church was temporarily closed in the early 1980s and
has since been moved to the corner of Raglan Street
and Broadway.

What a treat we had this weekend at Buckley’s of
Dunolly. The theme this month was ‘Strangers in
Paradise’, a tribute to musicals.
The wonderful talents of tenor Raymond Khong,
baritone Ian Cousins and pianist May Gavin came
together to delight the audience in the now famous
Melba Room. This deligh!ul room, lovingly restored by
Rachel Buckley, has been the venue for some
wonderful performances over the past months, but, to
my mind, this produc"on was the best.
Perhaps it was because the songs were so familiar from
many musicals such as Strangers in Paradise; Kismet;
My Fair Lady; The Desert Song; South Pacific; The
Student Prince, Naughty Marie$a, to name but a few.
The voices of the two men blended together so
beau"fully in the duets. Each voice has its own special
"mbre and quality, and each man alone sang
splendidly, but when combined, the two voices formed
such a wonderful unique sound that it transported me
to the stage and it was as if I were there with all the
colour and movement of the show unfolding before
Two outstanding moments, for me, were Bring Him
Home from Les Misérables by Raymond Khong - the
emo"on he portrayed brought tears to my eyes,
literally; and Music of the Night from Phantom of the
Opera by Ian Cousins. When he sang the final high note
I felt a shiver down my spine.
There was a li$le comedic dialogue interspersed
amongst the music, including some good natured
ribbing between the men, but it was May Gavin who
generated the most laughter with her recital of how to
give a cat a pill. For anyone who has ever tried to
administer medicine to a cat, you’ll relate to this. May
then went on to brilliantly play a piece about a cat and
mouse. Although there was li$le melody, the quick
lil"ng high notes and the more sinister low notes really
made you see a cat chasing a mouse in your mind’s eye.
Later May again regaled us, this "me with a 1950s look
at what a housewife should do to prepare for her
husband coming home. We then heard the modern day
version. The men cheered for one, and the women
cheered for the other. I’ll let you guess which was
which. May then gave a most s"rring rendi"on of
Warsaw Concerto. A brilliantly executed piece.
The a%ernoon finished with a%ernoon tea and a lovely
chat with the cast, and members of the audience who
expressed their delight at such a wonderful a%ernoon.

Dunolly Horse Ac!vity Club Inc.
Our Christmas Breakup was held at the Club in December
and was well a!ended and enjoyed by Club members and
their families.
February saw us run a Double Chance Show, which was
run quite successfully with a good a!endance with high
standard horses and riders. Cathy Simmons won the
Flamingo Memorial Supreme Champion Ridden Mount
sponsored by Rebecca Ingle.
In March we had an ATHRA ride to the Old Lead
Reservoir. It was a very warm day and horses and riders
enjoyed a paddle in the Res.
The Cross Country Course was worked on right up un"l
end of March with jumps to be finished off and rocks to
be picked up so as to be ready for accredita"on that was
achieved in readiness for our Inaugural Horse Trials. The
course was officially closed one month before the event.
On 3 and 4 May we held our Inaugural Horse Trials with a
Grand Opening Celebra"on. Local Dignitaries, Sponsors,
HRCAV Execu"ve and Members were invited with Cr
Barry Rinaldi, Mayor of Central Goldfields Shire, cu&ng
the ribbon. It was a very successful day and enjoyed by all
with many travelling long distances to compete. It was a
credit to our members who worked hard to build extra
yards and to conduct and cater for such a big event.
We had one team represent us at TTT Horse Trials at
Yarrambat on 17 and 18 May.
On the 25 May the Club celebrated its 30th Birthday on a
Rally Day that was a Fiona Dearing Dressage Clinic. We
enjoyed a spit roast and the Champagne flowed. There
was a lot of memorabilia on display to bring back
In June we ran our annual Showjumping Compe""on, a
great event. Timmy Memorial AM7 was won by Brendan
Slade and sponsored by Karen and Wayne Stephens. The
Showjumping arena was improved with work done by
Doran’s but it s"ll needs a base for draining.
Many of our dedicated members helped with the catering
for the Car Rally held in July which was profitable but a lot
of hard work.
On 31 August we ran a Naviga"on Ride at Bealiba with
Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club members Michelle Amalfi and
Aileen Marshall winning the official event. Riders enjoyed
a new trail and venue thanks to Bealiba Pony Club.
A lovely ATHRA weekend was enjoyed at John Brady’s
property at Enfield in September. It is a great venue,
thanks to John for opening his facility to us and Andrea
and Arnold for organising this.
In TTT Showjumping Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club was
represented at Werribee by two teams and some
individual placings were gained by DHAC riders.
Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club has a team entered for TTT
Vol 29 Iss 42 Page 15
Naviga"on Ride at Willowmavin in October and a team in
TTT Dressage at Werribee in November. We wish them
We have a great, hardworking bunch of members who
we couldn’t run the club without; they are the execu"ves
and helpers at events and working bees. We have
achieved so much over the past 12 months.
Our biggest challenge for 2013/14 was the comple"on of
the Cross Country Course by December 2013, which we
achieved on "me and with the small budget excess being
met by the club. It was a magnificent effort by dedicated
club members who contributed many, many hours of inkind labour under the exper"se of course builder Mick
We are so lucky to have a great ground, good facili"es,
dedicated members and awesome horses. I hope the
next 30 years will be just as great.
Sonya Richards Stuart, President
Dunolly Horse Ac"vity Club Inc 2013/14.
Cancer Council Victoria and Maryborough District Health
Service encourage people affected by cancer, including
family and friends, to a"end a free two half day ‘Living
with Cancer’ program commencing 14 November 2014.
Facilitated by qualified health professionals, the program
will be held at the Maryborough District Health Services,
Clarendon St, Maryborough. The day will cover:
‘What is cancer?’
· Cancer treatments and side effects
· Tips to improve communica$on with the health care
· How to access support services available
· Diet, exercise and looking a%er yourself
· Cancer myths and unproven remedies
· How to deal with changing rela$onships, self-esteem
and body image
· Coping with change, loss and grief
In addi$on to providing prac$cal informa$on and
emo$onal support, the Living with cancer program offers
people affected by cancer the opportunity to meet and
connect with others in a similar situa$on.
Past par$cipant and cancer pa$ent, Peter believes the
program has helped him understand and come to terms
with his cancer experience:
“It was great to feel ac•vely involved in something…the
informa•on was useful and it was good to listen to other
people’s perspec•ves and insights.”
For more informa!on or to register, please contact
Kerry Crozier on 5461 0400 or call the Cancer Council

To me there is no be!er land
That I would rather be
Where the big red hills stand
In my own true countree.
When the golden wa!les bloom
or the Summer breezes blow
out across the valleys loom
only true Australians know.
If I’m in the South or North
leaving East to travel West
it’s the country of my birth
and I love its dryness best.
Under the blue dome up above
I must up and go
to my flinders that I love
moving to and fro.
I can see the working plough
and the furrows on straight course
I can rest ‘neath gum tree’s bough
dreaming of the old draught horse.
Say! I must be up and away
to where wild breezes blow
and my footsteps I can’t stay
to my red country I must go.

Last Friday, we said our final farewells to our faithful
parishioner, Nestor Whitehead. Nestor was an
especially keen worker for the Bealiba Church Ladies’
Group and when it came to the monthly fund raiser
for our church, “Numbers Up”, in the Bealiba
Community Hall, her delicious slices sold (literally) like
hot cakes. Many years of faithful church cleaning,
many, many Shrove Tuesday pancake lunches for the
Bealiba school children and staff, as well as being all
that a Chris!an wife and mother should be. We will
miss her so, but oh how lucky are those
angels! They’ll have to watch their heavenly
waistlines with those lovely slices around!

Two students from Dunolly Primary School - Amelia Maree
Jago, and Ellen Stra&ord, both in Grade 5, were the winners
of the Peace Poster contest sponsored by the Maryborough
Lions Club. The two students are well on their way to
becoming interna!onally
recognized ar!sts with the
submission of their Peace posters. They were among more
than 375,000 entries submi'ed worldwide in the 27th annual
Lions Interna!onal Peace Poster Contest. Lions Clubs
Interna!onal is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the
importance of world peace to young people everywhere.
The posters were selected by Kay Parkin, Art Gallery
Manager at Central Goldfields Art Gallery and Patricia Walsh,
ar!st and owner of Possum Gully Fine Arts, for their
originality, ar!s!c merit and portrayal of the contest theme.
‘Peace, Love and Understanding’. The judging was held on 22
October, 2014 at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery at
Maryborough Lions Club President Ray Parker, said he was
impressed by the expression and crea!vity of the students at
the three local schools’ entries. ‘It is obvious that these
young people have strong ideas about what peace means to
them. I’m so proud that we were able to provide them with
the opportunity to share their visions’.
‘The winning posters will advance to face s!ff compe!!on
through the district, mul!ple district and interna!onal
rounds of compe!!on if they are to be declared the
interna!onal grand prize winner’, President Ray said.
One grand prize winner and 23 merit award winners will be
selected. The grand prize includes a cash award of US$5,000
(or Australian cash equivalent) plus a trip for the winner and
two family members to an award ceremony. The 23 merit
award winners will each receive a cer!ficate and a cash
award of US$500 (or Australian cash equivalent).
‘Our club is cheering for all winners as their posters advance
in the compe!!on, and we hope that their vision will
ul!mately be shared with others around the world’,
President Ray said.
Locally, all poster winners and 45 other students will be
honoured for their par!cipa!on by the Maryborough Lions
Club on Wednesday 29 October at 3.30 pm at Central
Highlands Library, Maryborough, where all the posters are
currently on display.
