COVER • ANOTHER ACCOLADE FOR LOCAL BUSINESS SUCCESS STORY It has been a big past 12 months for the team at The Splendid Egg as their business starts to gain momentum, building its reputation locally and on the national stage. It started with the Mount Gambier Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Award in the agribusiness category last October and has finished in a flurry with the business being named as one of the Top 50 Small Businesses by Inside Small Business Magazine. Known as the SMG Collective, the Splendid Egg is a three way partnership between Liam and Sarah Brokensha; Paul and Kylie Serle and Simon and Kylie Menzel – the couple whose Branxholme property was visited by The Living Room crew. The TV story, set to air in September, focussed on the company’s use of Maremma sheepdogs to protect their chickens. “Using the Maremmas is what allows us to produce eggs in the way that we do,” Liam said. And that is in a sustainable way with a focus on respect of the land and the animals. SMG’s signature product is The Splendid Egg, which is pastured free range eggs using mobile chicken caravans that are moved around broad acre farms every few days. It represents a truly symbiotic relationship, where the hens forage and regenerate the land while their grazing increases the quality of eggs that happy hens produce. The hens are truly free range, with stocking density fewer than four birds per hectare.
Each of the three couples started producing free range eggs individually but soon realised a shared philosophy could become a shared business success story. “Centralisation of packing, marketing and sales has allowed sharing of knowledge and skills and ultimately enabled the consistent supply of grass fed, seasonal produce whilst maintaining the integrity and biodiversity of their farms,” Liam said. It also adds new meaning to the phrase, a problem share is a problem halved – in the case of The Splendid Egg, the issues are split three ways with six minds hard at work on a solution. Established in May 2016, it is clear The Splendid Egg is on the right track. The local award was wonderful recognition that within this region, SMG Collective has captured the imagination of the market, while the Inside Small Business Magazine honour, where they were one of only 12 South Australian business named in the national top 50,
shows it is an idea that has legs. To add to the recent accolades, Kylie Serle was also nominated in two categories at the Women in Business Awards last year – Entrepreneur of the Year and Small Business of the Year. “Since its inception The Splendid Egg has been passionate about establishing a direct connection to the consumer around ethical and sustainable, premium produce,” Liam said. “We started fostering this relationship by having a weekly presence at the Mount Gambier Farmers Market and have now grown our relationship with the region to the point where our eggs are now in almost every independent retail outlet in the region along with prominent cafes and restaurants.” SMG Collective is also mindful of being a compassionate corporate citizen and has provided support to a number of community organisations. “One of the proudest moments has been becoming a major partner for a

THE CLASSICAL ERA OF MUSIC BROUGHT TO LIFE The Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s performance entitled Mozart and the Classical Age brings together three of the great Classical minds whose music epitomises the elegance, joy and clarity of this unmatched period of music history: Kraus, the Swedish composer sometimes called the “Swedish Mozart”; Mozart, the young impresario taking Vienna by storm; and Haydn, the father figure of the Classical period. The orchestra is bringing this musical treat to Portland on Thursday to the Portland Arts Centre. Anna Goldsworthy enthralled audiences with her MCO debut in 2014 with her intensely satisfying performances of Mozart’s final piano concerto. For this concert, she joins the orchestra for two gems rarely heard on the Melbourne stage: Mozart’s sixth concerto, written at the age 20, and the exuberant D major concerto of Haydn.

SEEKING A COLLABORATIVE WAY TO FUNDRAISE United Way Glenelg is seeking information from the small and medium business community to investigate if there is interest in a more efficient and coordinated approach to supporting community groups in the Glenelg Shire. United Way Glenelg has partnered with Portland Young Professionals Network to survey local business owners in the Glenelg Shire. The survey will be used to determine if there is support for a Business in Glenelg (BIG) Fund which will by encourage local small and medium Businesses’ to join together and each make a manageable monthly donation to make a BIG difference. Nicole Carr, Executive Officer from United Way Glenelg, said there is potential for the fund to be a more efficient form of fundraising. “We would be encouraging small businesses to make a monthly taxdeductible donation of as little as $50 (or an amount that is manageable) to be “pooled” and made available for community groups to access,” she said. “Our goal would be to sign-up 10 businesses at $50 per month to kickstart the BIG Fund, giving United Way Glenelg up to $6,000 to donate to community groups. The advantage for SME’s is tax deductibility, it enables the donation to stay within the Glenelg Shire, and it removes pressure from business owners to respond to dozens of community groups. There are no overheads charged and so collectively it can make a real impact on our shire’s most disadvantaged.” BIG partners would receive a United Way Glenelg window decal to identify the business as part of the BIG Program. They would be included on the United Way Glenelg Business directory website and would be provided with marketing material enabling them for those community groups seeking support. If you would like to be part of the BIG program please contact United Way Glenelg Executive Officer Nicole Carr on 0410 513 305 or mail@unitedwayglenelg. com.au

WARROCK HOMESTEAD HISTORY BROUGHT TO LIFE Living on Casterton’s Warrock Road, Adam Robertson always had a childhood infinity to learn more about the colonial stories and pastoral
heritage of the majestic neighbouring Warrock homestead. The talented 23 year old’s years of dedicated research were brought
to life ast week with the launch of his book; A life built worth settling for – Warrock Station; a chronological story behind one of Victoria’s most significant historical settlements. Mr Robertson mused whilst he had lived a mere six kilometres from the Casterton homestead, he never quite knew its cultural significance until he started his research. “Despite my proximity to the homestead it wasn’t until 2012, when I was 18 that I first visited the property. I find it hard to believe that for the first 18 years of my life I was utterly blind to my surroundings,” Mr Robertson said. “This is a community which assisted to sculpture Victoria’s early pastoral history, one of the first in the state behind the Henty’s.” The Casterton visitor services officer spent more than 18 months writing his latest publication, the second in a planned series of historical books supported by the Glenelg Shire Council and Casterton District Historical Society. Scottish settler George Robertson purchased Warrock, an 11,000 acre property in 1844 creating a small settlement comprising of 57 mostly timber buildings. This entirely self-sufficient settlement, featured beautifully sculptured gardens with significant trees and plant species including a main homestead, worker’s accommodation, woolshed, stables, carriage house and blacksmith shop. Glenelg Shire Council CEO Greg Burgoyne, who officially launched the
book, said council was extremely proud of Mr Robertson’s achievements “Adam is a tenacious and determined employee, spending thousands of hours over the past two years researching and crafting this important piece of our local history,” Mr Burgoyne said. “It gives me no greater pleasure than watching the personal development of employees and Adam is testament to what hard work and a focused attitude can achieve.”
Casterton District Historical Society president Karen Stephens, who is also a Glenelg Shire councillor, thanked the countless community members who had assisted Adam with content for the book, including photographs and newspaper clippings. “Adam’s hunger to learn more about our local history is infectious. The historical society is extremely thankful to the many locals, and those from afar, who have assisted in making this, book a reality,” Cr Stephens said. Copies of the book are available from the Australian Kelpie Centre, Casterton’s Visitor Information Centre for $35 each. Adam works at the centre each Monday and Thursdays and is happy to sign copies of the book. Above - Cr Karen Stephens, who is also the Casterton Historical Society president, with author Adam Robertson and Glenelg Shire Council CEO Greg Burgoyne.

BEN LOOKS TO REACH NEW HEIGHTS A relative newcomer to Mount Gambier, the most surprising thing about Ben Deering’s involvement in the 2018 Swinging With the Stars fundraiser
is that he has the time to attend rehearsals and learn the moves. Ben is an MTA travel agent, runs tourism icon Centenary Tower and has recently taken
on a role with Flinders University as the community manager of the newly established entrepreneurial hub. But the jack of all trades has found the time, partnering with Jacinta Cooper, to be one of the eight stars lining up in the June 23 event, which is the major annual fundraiser for the Stand Like Stone Foundation, at The Barn. “I knew of the foundation and so that was why I was happy to be involved,” Ben said. “I have had so many roles and had to do so many things over the years that the possible public humiliation is not even a factor.” Like most of the couples, Ben and Jacinta have caught up outside of regular rehearsal time to iron out any wrinkles in their routine, with hip hop again proving to be the most challenging genre. “Learning all of the dances has been as difficult as I thought it would be but it has also been more fun than I thought I would be,” Ben said. “I still feel like a fish out of water but it really has been good. It is nice having everyone go through the process together and while it is a competition, it doesn’t feel like a competition. I’ve played competitive sport and that is all about winning and losing and it has been nothing like that. Everyone is really supportive. Maybe it’s just that we have a really good group. It is a credit to the guys at Hype and the Stand Like Stone Foundation for fostering that kind of feeling and attitude.”
Most of Ben’s fundraising has been low key with donation tins and the online donations the focus, although when Centenary Tower recently celebrated 114 years, proceeds from the day, the tower’s busiest since Ben has been at the helm, went to his fundraising campaign.
He is set to finish his fundraising with a bang with a function this Friday at Thyme on the Lakes, combining many of Ben’s passions – travel and photography. The evening will see American Comfort Food as the central theme, while the travel and art auction will be the focus of the fundraising. “People have been so generous with donating photography and art and I have been able to use my contacts in the travel industry to comer up with some really great stuff to auction,” he said. Tickets, which are $59 a head, are still available with full details on the Centenary Tower facebook page. The evening starts at 6.30pm. Above - Ben Deering & Jacinta Cooper.

Advertorial • Hallmont & Woodlands Grove Retirement Villages
RETIREMENT VILLAGE LIVING IN FOCUS Recently, Retirement Villages have come under scrutiny due to misunderstood contracts and conditions. This year the Retirement Villages Act has been updated to make understanding Retirement Village contracts more user friendly, both for the residents and operators. With Retirement Village living in Australia expected to grow threefold over the next four decades, surely there are a lot of benefits attracting mature age Australians. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider Retirement Village living. COMMUNITY In a world where people are living alone more or having to move away from family and friends for economic reasons, Retirement Life makes you feel like you are part of a real community, something that is often lost in today’s society. There is something to be said about living in a community with like-
minded people of a similar age at the same stage of life. You can share values, history, social contact, interaction, relaxation, companionship and physical and emotional security that is something unique to a Retirement Village lifestyle. LIFESTYLE & CONVENIENCE One of the most attractive features of living in a Retirement Village is that you can “lock up and leave” if you want to travel. The outside of the home is maintained by us – so you won’t arrive home to knee high lawns and an overflowing mail box. Best of all with 24 hour security 7 days a week, you know your home and possessions will be safe while you are away. FLEXIBILITY We offer a varying size of Independent Living Units with offers of flexible services when you need them. Not only is there a support worker on site at all times, we also have our own meals on wheels service (meals that are delivered
to your door) and maintenance personnel who can assist with jobs around your unit. There are lots of familiar friendly faces and a community centre with many functions and activities for you to become involved in at any time. But if a quiet life is more your thing, your privacy is always respected. AFFORDABILITY & EFFICIENCY Living at Hallmont and Woodlands Grove is affordable. You can have a lifestyle that will provide you with an economic, yet high quality standard of living. Facilities and services can

be provided to a community more efficiently than they can be provided to separate individuals, making living here more accessible to the average Australian through lower costs and charges. As you progress through life – your lifestyle and health needs change. Happiness and relaxation become a priority and life in a Retirement Village may be the right solution for you. Retirement Villages provide the perfect combination of encouraging independence but providing extra support when you need it. You have
the benefit of living in an easy care, spacious unit situated in a beautiful estate which is quite often described as “living in a resort”. If you have considered making the move to Hallmont or Woodlands Grove Retirement Estates – come along to our free information seminar on Tuesday 26th June, 2-4pm in the Mount Gambier RSL Members Lounge, where you can speak to our friendly staff about the many options available. Please call Teena on (08) 87230300 to register your attendance – limited numbers available.
COLLECTED STUPIDITY - DEAR ROBBIE 35... By ROBBIE TANSEL Lifestyle1 management has made it clear that they don’t want me to write any more articles about netball.
I got an email this week that just has to be responded to though, and coincidentally it happens to be about
GETTING EVERYTHING YOU DESERVE?
netball. “Dear Robbie, I don’t understand much about netball, so your articles over the last few weeks about netball just haven’t resonated with me. You described the personalities of all of the positions, but since I don’t understand the game, it doesn’t make sense to me. Would it be possible for you to pick some well known celebrities, and describe for me which netball position it would make sense for them to play. reatly appreciated, David from Dartmoor.” Firstly David, I know you don’t know anything about netball. You play Goal Shooter for my mixed team sometimes, and you’ve got no idea what you’re
doing. You couldn’t hit the water if you fell out of a boat. Anyway, in response to your question let me provide some examples you might be able to relate to. If Kim Jong Un was a netballer, he’d definitely be a Wing Defence. Unpredictable, lacking in common sense, a bully and a thug. Realistically a hooligan in general. Did I mention a shocking haircut? That describes a typical Wing Defence as well as the North Korean leader. If cricketer Dave Warner was a netballer he’d also be a Wing Defence because he’s a rotten little cheat. If netball had have been around two thousand years ago, Jesus would have

been a Centre. Walking on water. Turning water into wine. Healing the sick. Dying on a cross and rising three days later. These are the sort of delusions of grandeur that a typical Centre has. Plus Jesus was pretty fit as he wandered all over the ancient world, and you have to be fit to play centre. Now David, you’re probably thinking, what about if Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters played netball? What position would he be? Dave Grohl would definitely be Goal Defence. There’s not too much flash to the former Nirvana drummer. He just gets the job done. That’s your typical GD. When I think of Karl Stefanovic, qualities that come to mind include a big stupid grin, narcissism, and a feeling that you’re better than everyone else. Clearly Karl would be a Goal Attack. I’ve got a feeling that Kim Kardashian probably never has or never will play netball…but if she did Mrs Kanye West would be a Goal Keeper. No talent and a big butt. The Queen would also have been a Keeper. You wouldn’t mess with her. A steely stare. Sharp elbows. Minimal personality. But don’t mess with her or you’ll end up mysteriously dead in a Paris tunnel. Too soon? If megastar former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson played netball, he’d clearly be a Goal Shooter. Goal Shooters are reliable and dependable. They never fail. To be honest, even the best Goal Shooter misses a shot every now and then. Get Smart was the Rock shooting an airball. Singer Taylor Swift is the celebrity version of Wing Attack. She’s nice to look at but really isn’t as talented as some people think. And kind of annoying. And can’t dance. And a yappy voice. How about if Donald Trump was playing netball? Let’s be honest he wouldn’t get to play. When everyone was picking the teams, they’d pick the kid with no coordination, the kid who is always picking his nose, the kid who always throws the ball in the wrong direction, and then they’d tell Donald that there weren’t an even number so he’d have to watch. Everyone at netball was looking at me kind of funny on Wednesday night. If you have any idea why, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

ALL WORK AND NO PLAY SEES LUCY HEADING TO THE DANCE FLOOR Lucy Von Stanke is used to cooking up a storm as co-owner and chef of Presto Eastery, in Mount Gambier, but it is now a waiting game to see if she can
dance up a storm. Lucy is one of eight stars set to dance the night away on June 23 and even though Lucy had one up on some of the competitors – she
is an MJ alumni who danced until she was 14 – but that doesn’t mean it still hasn’t been a steep learning curve. “For me it has been remembering the steps,” she said. “I don’t think you realise how much is going around in your head, particularly with work, until you try and cram more information into it.” Lucy is partnered with James Brennan and the duo has been trying to squeeze in extra rehearsals. There is always a range of reasons the eight selected stars who take part in the annual Stand Like Stone Foundation fundraiser, that has been running since 2008, decide to risk possible public humiliation by showcasing a new skill in front of around 600 spectators – for Lucy it was almost an escape. “Life is all work and no play for me at the moment and I felt like it would be a good opportunity to step out of work life and have a little bit of fun whilst raising money for a good cause,” Lucy said. The good news for Lucy, is it has been fun and just that escape for which she had been looking. “It has actually been a lot of fun and even though I will love having the free time when we’re done, I think I will really miss it,” she said. One of the common themes when talking to the class of 2018 is how hard the hip hop routine is to grasp, let alone master. “After the first two lessons of hip hop I just leant up against the back wall and said you realise we’re all amateurs,” Lucy said. “The moves are so fast and you are on the go the whole time.” Lucy is fundraising for a Stand Like Stone

Foundation sub fund – the LE & NC Myers Educational Scholarship which focuses on foster children being able to access further education outside of school. Earlier this month, Lucy held a
function at Jens Town Hall Hotel where her cousin volunteered to have her beautiful long hair cut off and donated to a charity that crafts wigs for cancer patients. That act alone raised more than $2000, with the sale of Presto’s famous paella also going towards the cause. Next on the agenda is a sold out, exclusive dinner in the Jens Town Hall Hotel cellar on June 14, where Lucy and her business partner Josslyn Lee will be creating a three course meal and share table for 40 guests, matched with local wines and with live music. “The staff at Presto are also donating their time to help with the function, which is great,” Lucy said. It is the first time in decades, the space has been used for a function. Mount Gambier’s F45 Training has also thrown their support behind Lucy, who is the gym’s ambassador. They have been donating her weekly membership to the sub fund and on June 16 are holding disco themed classes that are open to everyone, including non-members, with everyone asked to get into the spirit by dressing in disco themed outfits. The classes are 6.30-7.30am; 7.45-8.45am and 9-10am. Lucy will be attending the 6.30am class. A gold coin donation is all it will cost you to be involved. In one of those sessions. And for those heading to the June 23 Swinging With The Stars event, Lucy has thrown out a teaser – the cha cha costume, which is the first dance of the night, is, shall we say eye catching. “Every time I look at it I get a giggle and I think everyone else will too.”
COUNCIL APPOINTS NEW CEO The District Council of Grant has appointed a new chief executive officer following a comprehensive recruitment process. Mayor Richard Sage has confirmed the appointment of David Singe. Mr Singe will take up his position from the beginning of July. He has worked across four States in the fields of economic development, planning and health in roles including CEO, Board Member and Chairman of the Board. He is the current serving Board Chair of the non-profit Wheatbelt Health Network in Western Australia. He has worked for the Wheatbelt Development Commission, Western Australian Department of Planning, Department of Regional Development and North West (WA), Maryborough Regional Development Board and the City of Broken Hill, and has also been an independent consultant to Regional Development Australia Perth and other organisations. Mr Singe said he is very pleased to have been appointed the chief executive officer of the District Council of Grant. “The council has a great sense of stability and achievement, with plenty of opportunities for the future,” Mr Singe said. “I was very impressed by the teamwork and engagement of the Mayor and councillors during the recruitment process and look forward to working with the staff and council, as well as becoming a part of the community. I am confident that my career in regional development along with my experience as a chief executive officer will contribute to the future of the District Council of Grant in the South East Region. The council has significant agricultural, tourism and other potentials, and enjoys the advantages of operating a regional airport and providing services within the surrounds of South Australia’s largest regional city.” Mayor Sage said that Mr Singe’s appointment capped off a thorough recruitment process involving a large high quality field of candidates. “Council is looking forward to David commencing. He has a wealth of experience in regional areas and issues. He has demonstrated his affinity for the challenges and opportunities we face in regions,” he said. Mayor Sage said that council was confident of building upon their achievements of the past under David’s leadership. “We have a busy agenda ahead of us and are looking forward to our new Chief Executive Officer taking the reins.” Mr Singe takes up the role on July 2.
SICK KIDS TO BENEFIT FROM MONTH LONG FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN Triple M Limestone Coast is excited to announce the start of its annual charity initiative, Give Me 5 for Kids, which has previously raised thousands of dollars for the paediatric wards of the Mount Gambier, Naracoorte and Millicent hospitals. The fundraising campaign has been a fixture on the calendar in June for ore than a decade and has provided much needed equipment and services for sick children throughout the region. This year, Triple M across the country will aim to again raise millions of dollars for local hospitals. Their local target is to raise $15,000 by the end of this month to help purchase valuable resources for the assessment and treatment of children, as well as assist with the
redevelopment of local children’s wards. Community members are being urged to listen to Triple M for details on how they can become involved in this important cause, which can be as simple as making a donation, or holding a fundraising event. Triple M will this year also hold their major fundraiser, ‘Triple M Rocks Jens Hotel’ with a night of 70s music and beyond with local band Still Krazy, on Saturday June 23. Limestone Coasts Triple M’s general manager Patrick O’Donnell said Triple M was proud to be involved in Give Me Five for Kids, helping to raise much needed funds for the children’s wards of our local hospitals. “We have raised
more $270,000 locally for our hospitals over the last 12 years, and are proud to be involved in such an initiative,”
he said. For more information, and to donate online visit giveme5forkids. com.au

SOUTH AUSSIE FOOD ICON TO VISIT FARMERS MARKET When it comes to fresh local produce you need look no further than the Mount Gambier Farmers Market. Every Saturday of the year, up to 20 local producers set up their stalls and sell their wares. Nothing is from further away than 200 kilometres and the variety on offer makes it a one stop shop for all your fresh produce for the week. This weekend, along with the usual array of fresh vegetables, strawberries, apples, honey, jams, pickles and preserves, native flowers, Middle Eastern cuisine, beef, chicken, pork, fish and eggs, there will be a special guest when South Australian based foodie Callum Hann visits the market and cooks up a storm in two 45 minute demonstrations using what’s on offer at this Saturday’s market. Callum established Sprout Cooking School in 2011 to promote hands-on, healthy cooking, focusing on educating people around how to enjoy fresh healthy and seasonal food every day and highlighting the relationship between food and health. Sprout has since diversified to offer catering, training and a health studio. Callum’s passion for seasonal produce makes him the perfect fit for the Mount Gambier Farmers Market, with organisers looking to lift the profile of the weekly market by adding Callum’s celebrity status, but also using Callum as a proud South Australian. “It is good for people to hear from someone with a high profile and from outside this region about the produce
we have right here on our doorstep,” market coordinator Glenys Hughes said. Each weekend, the market boasts around 15 stalls, with some of the seasonal producers not available every weekend and Glenys is expecting this Saturday to have a bumper group of stallholders to take advantage of the extra foot traffic expected to watch Callum in action. He will be cooking at 9.30am and 11am.
Having Callum on site this Saturday should also attract a new demographic to the market, although there has already been gradual extension of the market’s regular customer base. “It started out as people in their 60s who grew up on whole foods and no junk food but now we see a lot of young families with parents in the 25-35 year age bracket,” Glenys said. “We are really looking forward to what Callum will create with the local
MILLICENT UNITED SOCCER CLUB TAPS INTO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COMMUINTIY GRANTS PROGRAM Member for Barker, Tony Pasin has secured $10,000 for the Millicent United Soccer Club thanks to the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme. The funding will contribute to much needed new flooring in the clubrooms. “I congratulate Millicent United Soccer Club on this successful funding application. It’s a worthy cause and I’m so pleased to be supporting it,” Mr Pasin said. The Stronger Communities Program provides not for profit organisations access to funds for small capital projects aimed at strengthening communities by improving community facilities. “This is a great example of the Federal Government supporting local grassroots sporting clubs which are such an important part of regional communities.” National Tax and Accountant’s Association Fellow Member - TAX PRACTITIONER

produce on offer. To be able to get some great ideas of someone who spends their life creating dishes from
seasonal produce will be an amazing opportunity.” There will also be an opportunity to taste Callum’s creations.

MOUNT GAMBIER SWIM CLUB WRAPS UP SEASON Swimmers from the Mount Gambier Swim Club celebrated a great season with members taking part in a game or two of Ten Pin Bowling before the presentation of awards and the dinner Annual General Meeting. The club reflected on a very positive season, with both local clubs working together to maximise training sessions. Swimmers have attended meets both locally and interstate this season as well as SA Country Championships, SA State SC and LC Championships and SAPSASA Swimming with representation in both Mid South East and Lower South East teams. An impressive amount of personal best times were recorded by swimmers over the season and trophies were awarded Vaughn Stratford (48), Elijah Stratford (44), Cooper Walters (29),Nikeisha Facey (18), Caitlin Carraill (13), Charlotte Scott (12) and Lucy Edwards (12). Elijah Statford was presented with the Highest Achiever Award, having represented SA at the Pan Pacific School Games in Adelaide last December. Individual medals were also awarded to swimmers for impressive PB’s over the season. These included: Caitlin Carraill: FLY >5 sec, BACK/IM >20 sec Charlotte Scott: BR >10 sec, FR/BK/FLY/IM >20 sec Indee Stratford: FR/BK >10 sec, BR >20 sec Lucy Edwards: FR/BK/FLY >5 sec Nikeisha Facey: BK/BR >5 sec, IM >10 sec, FR >20 sec Paige Walters: FR >10 sec, BK > 20 sec Cooper Walters: FLY > 5 sec, FR/BR >10 sec, BK > 20 sec Elijah Stratford: BR > 5 sec, BK > 10 sec, FR/FLY/IM > 20 sec Ethan Michielan: FLY > 5 sec Sam Saunders: FR >5 sec Vaughn Stratford: BK/BR/IM > 10 sec, FR/FLY > 20 sec Parents and relatives were also thanked for all their support; it was very fitting that as part of volunteer week, they could be recognised for all of the valuable work that they contribute to the club, from being committee members to timekeeping, assisting with BBQ and official roles at swim meets.

THE MASTER BECOMES THE STUDENT FOR DANCING COMPETITION Last year, Penola’s Amanda Flint took out the 2017 Swinging with the Stars competition, while raising much needed funds for the Penola Coonawarra Wellbeing Sub Fund, as part of the Stand Like Stone Foundation fundraiser. This year, Penola is being represented by school teacher Nicole Lear, who has a connection to Amanda, with Amanda being her only genuine connection to dance. “I did social dance with Amanda Flint a few years ago. It was great fun and was very social, as well as being good exercise,” Nicole said. But in reality, she is as green as any of the eight competitors in the 2018 event but she saw the chance to be involved as too good to refuse. “It’s an amazing opportunity to meet new people, learn some new skills, and push myself outside my comfort zone,” Nicole said. “As a teacher I am always challenging my students in their learning and pushing past “comfortable learning”. I need to practise what I preach. I also wanted to support Stand Like Stone, as my workplace and community has benefitted from grants and scholarships from the foundation.” It has seen Nicole suffer somewhat of an identity crisis. “It’s certainly been a weird feeling being the student, instead of the teacher, but I have loved it,” Nicole said. “The dances are taught at a quick pace, and it really gets me thinking and working hard. Sometimes I just stand and observe and freak out a little bit, but then I take it all in, go home and practise

a lot in my lounge room. I come back to the next lesson more confident. I love being pushed in my learning, again, it’s something I expect of my students.” Partnered with Jayden Green, Nicole is eternally grateful for her dance partner’s patience. “He is extremely patient and makes me laugh when I’m obviously getting a bit stressed out,” Nicole said. “We have been having a few extra practices and he and another dancer Keana have been so supportive. I’m very grateful to have such a good dance partner, and as long as I don’t crack up laughing in the tango, which is happening a lot in practice, we will be fine.” Much like her dancing colleagues, Nicole has found the hip hop routine the toughest to master.
“At first I thought I had it all sorted, and then we learned the second half, which felt like it was double speed,” she said. “I’m happy with it now, and it’s probably my favourite dance.” Nicole, like so many Penola stars before her, have received overwhelming community support when it comes to her fundraising events, which have included a fete in April that raised more than $5000, a pizza fundraiser run by Raidis Estate that yielded $1000 and she still ahs some smaller events on the horizon in the lead up to the June 23 competition. Information on the upcoming events will be available on Nicole’s Swinging With the Stars facebook page. “I have been truly overwhelmed by the support I have received from the community,” Nicole said. “I’ve always known that Penola and Coonawarra and very generous and supportive of community events, but this has really blown me away. Individuals, businesses, families and schools have been incredibly generous in their donations and support of my dancing. I think they understand that the money raised comes directly back into the community so are really willing to support it. I cannot thank the community enough. I hope there is some way that I can celebrate with all of them.” Above - Penola’s Swining with the Stars entrant Nicole Lear working in the classroom with her students.

This year, The Hamilton Pastoral and Agricultural Society will be presenting even more competitions than ever before at Sheepvention. The staple competitions of the Ram Sale, Hamilton and Western District Sheep Show, Coprice Victorian Farm Dog Competitions and Inventions will be held throughout the event. President, Will Kinghorn said Sheepvention was celebrating its 40th event this year so we are anticipating a great number of competition entries. "We have already received additional Ram Sale entries which is very promising. We have a dual feature breed of Texels and Merinos this year," he said. "The committee felt, given that the Sheep Show was also celebrating 160 years a feature breed in each pavilion was appropriate. We anticipate over 1000 show sheep, with the displays, ram sale and exhibition sites the number will exceed over 2500 sheep present." The Young Auctioneers Competition was highly successful last year. The new location of the Cattle Yards meant the entrants could sell the Emmanuel College Steers within the Ram Sale Pavilion. “The atmosphere created was fantastic, it was electric and it gave the young auctioneers a fabulous experience," he said. "We are hoping to offer the winner this year the opportunity to actually sell

a pen of rams during the Ram Sale. This should be very exciting for everyone involved. The Inventions Competition was the catalyst for what Sheepvention has become. We are creating a special pavilion which will include the inventions competitions along with a range of heritage displays and activities. Sheepvention has showcased some brilliant inventions in previous years. With over $6,000 in cash and prizes, there is a huge incentive to get inventing! We are also very pleased to be expanding our school events. This year we will have school competitions in junior judging, inventions, photography plus the Great Lamb Burger Challenge. There are also a wide range of children’s workshops for children including cookery, crafts, lego robotics and more. All local schools and kindergartens have been sent the information to encourage school participation."

Melbourne’s premier Jazz Band, Shirazz, is returning for the third consecutive year to Penola on Saturday, July 7, as part of Coonawarra Cellar Dwellers celebrations. This vibrant band of talented musicians play some of the hottest trad (traditional) jazz around, and are excited to take to the Rymill Hall stage. Shirazz has plenty of touring experience, having performed all over the eastern states, as well as throughout Victoria. “We love being on the road, it’s great to go to new places and meet new people, and we’ve had some really great tour experiences,” said Matt Dixon, leader and trombonist/vocalist in Shirazz. Since 2010, Shirazz has been wowing audiences with their exciting and approachable take on traditional jazz music. “Jazz fans love that we’re keeping the style alive, as many traditional musicians are nearing retirement,”, said Matt, “But even non-jazz fans find the music accessible and fun and I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had people tell us that they didn’t think they liked jazz, but they loved whatever it is that we do.” Shirazz’s lively and rambunctious show at Rymill Hall, Penola, will take in traditional New Orleans material, mixing in reimagined pop hits and their own cheeky originals to deliver their famous infectious live sound. Don’t be surprised to hear Beatles or Michael Jackson tunes alongside King Oliver or Louis Armstrong numbers, with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humour and lively banter between. Their infectious energy also means the dance floor won’t stay empty for long, so bring your dancing shoes. This year’s event will see the start time pushed back to 8pm to enable those with commitments during the day to attend. Heidi Eldridge, Marketing and Events Officer of the Coonawarra Vignerons said, “We recognise that many people in the Limestone Coast are busy

Event organisers in the Greater Hamilton region hosting events between September 1 his year and February 28 next year are urged to notify Council to take advantage of invaluable free marketing and assistance. The Greater Hamilton Spring Summer tourism and events marketing campaign enables events to reach audiences across the South West and into Metropolitan areas, as well as making events visible to digital audiences.
