Our bowls season is drawing to a close. Ladies Division Two pennant team have finished equal top with Yinnar on the ladder at the conclusion of the home and away games. We are scheduled to play off in the final on Monday February 21st. GO BOOLARRA!
A big thank you to the men who have been helping us out during the season. To celebrate we enjoyed a pennant dinner at the Italian Australian Club, who are one of our valued sponsors.
In a high standard game Joy Prior defeated Janice Whelan in the final of the Ladies Club Championship. Our congratulations to Joy who went on to represent Boolarra at the Gippsland Association level. Other club games are yet to be decided.
During the past few months we have been saddened by the passing of two of our dedicated long time former members in Shirley Holmes and June McRae. Both ladies were in nursing homes and well into their eightieth year. Our condolences have gone out to their families.
On a brighter note our congratulations and best wishes have been extended to Jean and Bill Welsh of Yinnar on their sixtieth wedding anniversary. Jean and Bill are also former valued members of our club both being past presidents.
Once again during the Folk Festival on 5th March Boolarra Bowling Club served our very popular Devonshire tea at the club. This was very popular, with plenty of people coming in to take a break and sit down in comfort to have a cuppa and a scone.
The ladies still have two main fundraisers before the season ends – a fours tournament on 22nd March and Invitation Day early April.
