Yarrawonga College P-12 Year 10 luncheons Last Tuesday and Thursday Yarrawonga College held its annual Year 10 luncheons at the Mulwala Ski Club, organized by Adolescent Health Nurse Rosemary Bunge.

Year 10 girls luncheon leaders Michaela Levesque, Jess Rennie, Mariah Rose, Laura Clarke, Kelly Fursden, Chloe Thomas and Bria Runnalls.

Both days were well attended by Yarrawonga College year 10 students, Sacred Heart year 10 students and members of local service clubs. On Tuesday the girls’ luncheon was held. Kelly Fursdon, a registered nurse from Masonic

Year 10 boys luncheon leaders Terry Brear, Mitch Grear, Bronson Schofield and Angus McLaurin. Clergy comment

Climate change 150 days and all living creatures perished. Only the righteous Noah and his family of seven survived to renew civilization again. Man’s corrupt, rebellious and violent behaviour caused it, God instigated it and the benefit at great cost, is the new present civilization based on the righteous Noah. The good news is that it won’t happen again. That’s why God puts the rainbow

The system has worked well and will continue in the foreseeable years ahead. Cobram travel over by bus - it’s the way to go; no night driving, no pressure. We look forward to a pleasant gathering on December 1. I’ve been thinking about Cobram Lodge rather a lot lately. The Goulburn Valley Masonic Group has been raising funds in support of an oncology unit for the

The reality is we do know that over the centuries and prior to the industrial revolution significant climate changes occurred. We wonder who, or what is responsible and what is the cost/benefit to mankind. Historically the most detailed, documented and dramatic case was the flood of Noah’s Day as recorded in the bible. After 40 days and nights

9:13) – as a reminder of his promise never again to destroy the Earth by flood. As was the case with Noah, God has laid out a wonderful future in the bible for mankind and even though the world will again return to ‘As in the days of Noah’, with consequences, God offers us eternally Jesus Christ as our life raft today. Trevor Jones Church Elder

nie, Laura Clarke, Mariah Rose and Michaela Levesque on a job well done. The boys’ luncheon followed on Thursday with guest speaker Terry Brear speaking about his experience on the Kokoda Track and about his life in general. This was followed by a presentation by Angus McLaurin (Yarrawonga College teacher) who trekked the Kokoda Track last year with a group from Yarrawonga College. These presenta-

tions were both inspiring and thought provoking, creating a lot of interest in next year’s planned trek to Kokoda by Yarrawonga College. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful Chinese lunch and had time to interact with other students and representatives of the service clubs. Two Yarrawonga College year 10 boys assisted on the day as MCs, a big thanks goes to Bronson Schofield and Mitch Greer.

Masonic Musings

For a number of years we at St David have combined with Cobram Lodge to hold a December meeting at St David.

Climate change could be of rain a great flood cov- in the sky when storm ered the whole earth for clouds appear (Genesis called a hot topic today.

Wangaratta Blood Bank, came and gave an inspiring presentation about blood donation; her presentation was followed by two of the College’s year 11 students who have commenced donating this year. Tylah Ferguson and Sarah Beattie spoke of their positive experience becoming blood donors. Six Yarrawonga College year 10 girls assisted on the day acting as MCs, thanks to Bria Runnalls, Chloe Thomas, Jess Ren-

Shepparton Base Hospital and set their sights on raising $100,000. Thanks to the enthusiasm of the group, in particular one Richard Green, that target became a reality. Last month the Cobram Lodge, under the mastership of Charlie Chan assisted by his wife, Ling, held a function at the local pub. The expected attendance rose from the estimated 70 to 140 people. It was a fund-raising exercise in support of the Oncology Appeal and raised $4,000. Just how Charlie and Ling managed to do this bugs me a bit. There is no way that I am capable of achieving such a result.

I might speak better English than Charlie but in the fund-raising field he leaves me far behind. The result is that, having now passed their $100,000 aim, the G.V. Masonic Group is now aiming for $120,000 for their Oncology Appeal. Where would our country be without our wonderful army of voluntary workers? I note that in last week’s edition of the Chronicle considerable mention was made of numerous local identities that travelled to the Big Smoke to see Tiger Woods and some other golfing identities ply their trade in the JB

Were Australian Open. That’s all very good, but one outstanding sporting identity who figures largely on the local scene, and who claims that during the worst of the weather on the Saturday he was the only spectator left in the grandstand, received nary a mention. Naturally our Dave feels a little peeved at not receiving a mention, particularly as he told Tiger what was wrong with his putting but, Dave accepts that not everybody is aware of his sporting prowess.
