Happy Birthday: Jim Neill celebrated his birthday with Elaine Hocking and good friends Joy (not her real name you know – actually Gloria) and Quentin Murray at Fettler’s on Tuesday evening July 10.
Jim who has just undergone knee reconstruction was also celebrating his great recovery – he said it was not too bad for someone who just turned 78. Oops didn’t mean to tell them how old you were Jim.
Return to Grenfell: Paul O’Regan who was employed in the Commonwealth Bank in Grenfell in the early 70’s and forged a great relationship with the community and in particular the golfing community returned at the weekend for the Grenfell Country Club’s Annual Open Day.
Paul worked in Grenfell in the bank for two years and a further five years in Young.
He was delighted to catch up with many of his friends on his visit and was pleased to meet up with Father Richard Thompson at Mass on Sunday morning.
Father Richard was in Young when Paul was working there.
Paul also paid a visit to his great friend of many years, Bill Lowe.
No doubt many stories were retold during this time!!
Paul also caught up with other great friends – Meg and Jack Grant.
He told me that he was amazed to find that Meg’s sister Mary and her husband Reg Sawyer formerly of Canowindra lived in his street in Mollymook and often caught up with the Grants when they visited the coast.
Paul was also in a winning team at the Open Day winning the Scratch I event on a count back.
Golf: Whilst on the story of Golf – just how many golf balls can one player win?
Our famous butcher Lyle “Fly” Walker seemed to have an abundance of them following the Open Day on Sunday.
Maybe he just requires them for practice, – will this improve his game? “Fly” was pictured with nine golf balls following the fun draw.
