ISSUE 187

Remembering Ex-Service Personnel On Anzac Day Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national days of commemoration and is observed on 25th April each year. Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by the ANZAC’s (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) at Gallipoli in Turkey in 1915, during WWI. However, the importance of Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing in Gallipoli. It is a day to reflect on the sacrifices made by service women and men of both Australia and New Zealand who have participated and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and to send our thanks to those currently in service. Anzac Day 2019 will take place on Thursday, 25th April and is a time for the Forbes community to come together and pay tribute to the first ANZAC’s and to all those who have since followed in their footsteps. This year’s Anzac Day Dawn Service will commence with participants assembling at 5:15am in front of the Forbes Services Memorial Club. The march to the Cenotaph will be at 5:20am where the ceremony will be held in Victoria Park at 5:30am. Breakfast will be available at the Forbes Services Memorial Club from 6:30am at own cost. The Mid Morning Service will see march-

ers assemble in Cross Street at 10am for the march which will commence at 10:15am for the Cenotaph via Lachlan Street. A luncheon will also be available at the Club Bistro at own cost. The traditional two-up games will commence at 2:30pm in the Club Auditorium.

The day will conclude with a lowering of the flag ceremony to commence at 5:00pm at the Cenotaph. Further information on the commemorative events planned for this Anzac Day can be found on the back page.

THUMBS... MAYORAL NOTES Easter is upon us again and boy oh boy this year is going by so quickly. The Council meeting was held on Thursday, with lots of great decisions made, especially our Budget workshop that has achieved a balanced budget, even a small surplus. We had the most amazing Youth Week celebration this year. I must congratulate the 23 award nominees and I commend the winners of the awards. I also thank all the wonderfully talented artists who performed on the day. I met with the organisation, Boys to the Bush this week. They are a not-for-profit organisation working with disengaged boys. One of the co-founders is Adam Demamiel – a local boy. Their mission is to provide an environment and opportunity for young males to learn the importance of becoming a good bloke. They run camps for boys in the bush and give the kids an opportunity to experience what we take for granted. There will be an information night soon. Take a look at the website www.boystothebush. com.au.

Magical Balloons Set To Fill The Sky

SNIPPETS... this in mind, the association is urging people to remember the importance of Anzac Day, and what it stands for. Commemorate the day, celebrate the traditions, but be respectful and responsible.

Over the next 10 days Canowindra will awake each morning to hot air balloons filling the skies. The Supagas Canowindra International Balloon Challenge takes place this time each year as Canowindra boasts perfect ballooning conditions. “Canowindra is situated in a basin, which means the high winds mostly pass over the top thus the winds are generally calm. The road network is also extremely good for retrieving the balloons after they land,” said Jan Kerr from the Supagas Canowindra International Balloon Challenge. The official competition will kick off this weekend with the Key Grab to be held this Sunday morning 21st April. The Key Grab is probably the most spectacular event for the public to see. Balloons launch from a site of their choosing, with the aim to fly in to try and pluck a large key from the top of a flagpole. The key represents a major cash prize for the first one to get it. Spectators can gather outside a safety exclusion zone around the flagpole to watch the fleet approach and cheer the pilots on. The balloons will then start to compete each morning and afternoon around town from Monday 22nd April. Of course the 10 day event will finish off with the famous Cabonne Country Balloon Glow on Saturday 27th April with gates opening at Canowindra Showground from 3pm. Don’t miss the amazing spectacle of balloons lighting up the night sky at the Balloon Glow and Night Market. To book tickets for Flickerfest, the Anzac Campfire Cookout or the Cabonne Country Balloon Glow please go to the event website www.canowindrachallenge.org.au. A full program of events is also available online.

Respect The Day: Ahead of Anzac Day on Thursday, 25th April, Respect the Day is a campaign of the RSL & Services Clubs Association to remind people of the special significance of Anzac Day and to encourage Australians to reflect on how we should behave on this sacred day. Anzac Day symbolises the sacrifices made by our defence personnel in all theatres of conflict at all times and the service of all veterans to Australia irrespective of overseas service, full or part-time service, serving or exservice, male or female. It is for these reasons that Anzac Day is so important. With

NSW Double Demerit Dates: Motorists are reminded that double demerits will be in place for eight days during this month’s Easter and Anzac Day holiday period.

Then there will be a one day break before they start again on Wednesday, 24th April and run through to Sunday, 28th April (inclusive). The double demerit points period applies from midnight of the start date to midnight on the finish date, meaning this month there will be a total of eight days where double demerit penalties will be in place.

Changing Your Will

A will is a testamentary document. This means it takes effect upon your death. It appoints an executor (a person who administers and distributes your assets) and makes bequests (distributes your assets among beneficiaries). A will remains valid until it is cancelled by you or if you marry after the will was made. Nothing is ever set in concrete, and, thus, your will should be a living document. It should be changed or updated as circumstances change. The rules are slightly different from state to state, so you should get legal advice if you want to make such a will. You can cancel your will at any time provided you are of sound mind. This can be done in many ways, some of the main ones are: • You make a valid new will. By law this revokes prior wills when the new terms contradict the old. • You make a valid new will and expressly revoke the old one. • You destroy your will with the intention of revoking it. Estate planning is an area of the law of great family importance. We at Matthews Williams are able to give you competent professional advice on all estate planning matters. If we can assist you on any legal issue, feel free to contact me or one of our solicitors or call into our office for an appointment. If we at MATTHEWS WILLIAMS can help you on any legal matter, feel free to call us. By Mark Olson

Seven Sisters Bridge Near Forbes To Be Replaced The closed Seven Sisters Bridge will be replaced due to a Bridges Renewal Program grant delivered to Forbes last Thursday by The Nationals’ Riverina MP and Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack. The steel truss, single lane bridge located on the Bedgerabong Road over the Goobang Creek near Forbes has been closed for months due to structural defects. A dirt road detour on the dry creek bed below is currently being used as an alternative road for vehicles. The Prime Minister said they were committed to delivering infrastructure to important regional roads in regional and rural Australia. “We are making sure ageing bridges, such as the Seven Sisters Bridge, are replaced so that road users can get to where they are heading sooner and safer,” said Michael. “I am pleased to deliver this important investment for the community which will improve safety and productivity for the local agricultural industry,” he said. The Federal Government has committed $550,000 towards the bridge replacement. Michael said they have committed $640 million for vital bridgeworks between 2015– 16 to 2022–23, with an ongoing commit-

ment of $85 million each year following. “The Bridges Renewal Program provides up to 50 percent of the cost of repairing or replacing old and unsafe local bridges, which is a fantastic win for local communities,” continued Michael. “Under Round 4, the Government has committed $57 million to help fund vital lo-

cal bridgeworks following the completion of an open, merit-based selection process,” said Michael. Under Round 4 of the program, the Government will contribute up to a maximum of $700,000 for one bridge or $1.4 million for two bridges in the same local government area.

The B-Division also required a count back, with Brett Slack-Smith winning over Craig Barrett after both scored 3-up.

Runnerup, on count back, was Dan Bayley on 38 points. The ball sweep went to Andrew Dukes (38) and Mike Wood (37), while Ethan Gaffney took out both NTP’s. Also played on Sunday was the final of the 2018 AAA Cup, sponsored by AAA Septic Services. A play-off was needed to deter-

In Memory of the men and women who served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. We will remember them.
