Those persistent Boomerang Bag makers were back at the Tocumwal War Memorial Hall on Sunday, busy making bags to replace the throwaway plastic bags.

This time there was a spot of youthful enthusiasm as young Lily Thorburn helped cut fabric and sew the bags.

Did you miss out this week? Well, there is another sewing day scheduled for the Sunday after Mother’s Day.

Donated fabrics can be left with Kristine Philpot at Miss Daisy.


Easter was such a huge weekend in Tocumwal we could not fit everything in last week.

One of the events that missed out last week was the Cobram and District Artist Society Art Show.

Society president Trevor Ellison said the group was happy with the way the four day show progressed and very pleased with the sales.

The most prolific seller of exhibited paintings for Easter 2018 was Sue O’Kane who specialises in peaceful Murray River scenes.

Winner of the show raffle was Alf Green.


Just a reminder, although Anzac Day is in the April school holidays the school would still like to see all of the students marching on the day.

Tomorrow is the Deanery Cross Country carnival in Tocumwal, with students from Jerilderie, Berrigan, Jerilderie and Urana.

Students in Kinder, Years 1 & 2 will be kept busy with their own mini cross country back at Sacred Heart school grounds.
