Elspeth is the first Grandchild for Jill Hamilton and David Hore of Grenfell.

Her parents are over the moon and Nan Jill is besotted.

Poppy David is anxiously scouting around for Elsie’s first pony.

Book Club: More than six years ago a group of ten women in Grenfell who really enjoy reading formed a book club, meeting once a month at a member’s home or going out to dinner to discuss what they have been reading.

Last Monday six of the group, Pam Livingstone, Penny Starr, Mary Moffitt, Zel Barker, Jenn Graham and Leslie Marden enjoyed fellowship, great food and relaxation at Fettler’s Restaurant to discuss their latest books.

Class of 73: A group of young ladies said they do not need an excuse to enjoy an evening out – so last week Vicki (McCann) Carter, Sheryl (Stevens) Hinde, Joanne (Logan) McCann, Jeannie (Light) Murray, Glenda (Bush) Johnstone, Rosie (Brown) Lynch and Lorette (Eppelstun) Walmsley met at Fettler’s Restaurant for dinner.

This group or Class of 73 attended the Henry Lawson High School together and had a great night out. Glenda Johnson is the only one who now lives outside the Weddin Shire and made the trip over from Cowra to join the girls.

Baptism: On Sunday July15, Francis Craig McMahon son of Craig and Tamara and sister to Daisy was baptised during Mass in St Joseph’s Church. Father Joseph officiated with his God Parents being Steven and Tina McMahon from Tullamore.

On a very cool morning his grandparents, Michele and Colin Johnson (Grenfell) and Robyn and Kevin McMahon (Tullamore),great grandparents Tom and Beryl Lavers and other family were present to witness Little Frank receive this most important sacrament.

Happy Birthday: Ron Hazell celebrated his 85th birthday on Tuesday evening at Fettler’s Restaurant with his extended family, friends and neighbours.

Ron was overwhelmed to see his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in attendance as well as his sister Norma Reid and brother Tom.

During the day he had a call from his brother Clive to wish him a very happy birthday.

Celebrating: Happy birthday to Beryl Lavers who celebrated her birthday on Tuesday evening July 24 with her family at Fettler’s Restaurant.

Her husband Tom, son Wayne and partner Mikla Lewis, daughter Michele and her husband Colin Johnson and grandson Curt were on hand for this happy occasion.

Happy Holidays: Hazel and Ted Pickwell have recently returned from a quick trip to Townsville where they visited Hazel’s 3rd youngest sister who was seriously ill in the Townsville “Bends” hospital. She is now out of hospital and is recovering. Whilst in Townsville they took time to visit Hazel’s eldest sister and brother in law at Wulguru. They also visited her youngest sister at Charters Towers and took enjoyed lunch at a local eatery.

On their way home from Townsville they took advantage of the nice 25C temperatures and spent time at Proserpine, Sarina and Kinka Beech near Yeppoon.

On the last night they stopped at Gilgandra and parked next to a Keith Reid from Cowra who was a good friend of Bill Rudd. It is amazing that you can always run into somebody from Grenfell or somebody who knows someone from town.

School Holiday Visitors: Hazel and Ted Pickwell enjoyed the Company of their eldest son Edward, his wife Tracy and their two grandchildren Lauren and Beth for a few days during the school holidays. It was Tracy’s 42nd birthday on the Wednesday, which they all celebrated with a sumptuous banquet at “The Happy Inn”
