Boolarra Red Cross – June. 2011

March was ‘Red Cross Calling’ month, and as in past years, members of the Yinnar Scouts door-knocked in the towns of Boolarra and Yinnar. The amounts raised (including tins in shops, Post Office and Boolarra Pub) were:  Boolarra $504.65 and Yinnar $522.80 – a grand total of $1,027.45. A very big “thank you” to the Scouts, and to all those who contributed.

Unfortunately, we were unable to conduct our Mothers’ Day Raffle, as the order for the tickets went astray in the postal system. Prizes are being retained, and will be raffled next Mothers’ Day, 2012.

On May 31st, Boolarra hosted the Conference of Region 9 Units. Members from Warragul, Erica/Rawson, Morwell and Traralgon attended.

Our next fundraiser will be the ever-popular “Bev’s Fashions” Parade, to be held in the Christian Fellowship Hall on Monday, June 20th at 2.00pm. Admission has been reduced this year to $5.00, which covers lucky door prizes of three Gift Vouchers and a scrumptious afternoon tea.  A raffle will also be held.

On Monday, July 4th, our Annual General Meeting will be held in the Boolarra  Multi-Purpose Building, when the Office Bearers for the next 12 months will be appointed.
