COMMUNIT Y NEWSBITES AND WHISPERS FROM AROUND THE REGION
Lutheran church pastor, Jim
Bryan, looks like former
Prime Minister, Kevin “07”
Rudd. What do you think?
Get along to Jim’s coffee
morning at the church
hall on May 20 to see for
Woods & Wills
N LOCALS Mike and Sue
Wood took part in the fund-
raiser “4km to D-feet Motor
Neurone Disease.” (MND) on
Sunday, May 4
Their daughter, Jess, is
events co-ordinator for MND
in SA. MND week is cel-
ebrated nationally each year
in May. MC for the day was
well-known celebrity, Anne
Wills, so Mike, Sue and Jess
managed to get a happy snap
As MND doesn’t receive
any government funding, it re-
lies on events like this to raise
funds. To date, it has raised
on-line more than $14,400.
N LUTHERAN church
is holding a fellowship and
coffee morning on Tuesday,
May 20, at 10am. Everyone
is invited to come along for
a chat and cuppa in the hall.
Smiling pastor Jim Bryan
makes everyone feel at home.
N If you’re looking for
some treasure, go along to
the combined Moody Estate
garage sale on Saturday,
May 17 from 8am. (See ad
for details.) An assortment
of items will be on sale so
don’t miss out.
N NOTICE anything different?
Yes, Take 5 has a new “movie
director” type top. And just to get in
before you do, I haven’t been cut – yet.
Although, last Friday, in the rain,
I was waiting (and secretly hoping)
to hear “Cut” as I was nervously
waiting to go for some hot laps with
my husband, Scott. That would
be hot laps in a racing car at
Mallala Motor Sports Park,
which I foolishly bought at an
auction night last year.
Someone else from the
Plains Producer did the same.
Read Terry’s report elsewhere.
After screaming all the way
around (not really!) going a mil-
lion miles an hour, and almost
having a “Pirates of Penzance”
moment. If you have watched
the movie Pretty Woman you’ll
know what I’m talking about!
And that was just our intrepid
reporter.o Personally, I found it no
more challenging than negotiating
the Foodland carpark on Christmas
eve! Truly! I think I have almost
FYI – Scott loved it (I did too
really, but don’t tell anyone.)
Double the fun
N THE biggest morning tea fund-
raisers are coming up, but how many
places are holding two?
Brinkworth Primary school is
holding a “big afternoon tea” at
the school on Thursday, May 22
at 2.30pm. Entry is by gold coin
donation, and entertainment will be
by students. Then on Monday, May
26, a “big morning tea” will be held
at 10am at Norma’s Country Cafe.
There will be a display of novelty
tea cosies, all made by locals.
N OUR reporting
on pen pals has cre-
ated quite a bit of in-
terest, with a number
of people coming out
of the woodwork with
stories of long-time
This latest is quite
different when com-
pared to Balaklava’s
Julia Hoskin, who fea-
tured here onApril 24.
Aileen Oliver, of
Webb Beach, started
writing to her pen pal
in term two of her
grade 5 school year,
back in 1949 when
she was 11 (now we
know your age Ai-
leen).Aileen’s pen pal
was the relief teacher
at Korunya primary
school – Miss Elma
Elma only taught
at the school for just
one term, and kept in
contact with a couple
of students after she
moved north to Or-
roroo. She married
a Kimba farmer and
became Mrs Scott.
Aileen and another
girl were invited to
attend Elma’s wed-
ding on September
6, 1949, at Orroroo,
which they did.
Like Elma, Aileen
also married a farmer,
(from Lewiston) but
they now have retired
to Webb Beach.
Almost 64 years
later, Elma and Ai-
leen continue to send
Christmas cards and
letters and Elma, who
still lives in Kimba,
attended the “Back
to Korunye” reunion
about 40 years ago,
but other than that,
they haven’t caught
up face-to-face since

by, as part of

a beautiful au-
tian belly dancing costume.
Di kicked off the entertainment
for the large crowd at the luncheon,
which also featured lots of other
different “pop-up” entertainment,
including Balaklava harpist, Meriel
Lane, a Dish It Up cooking demo,
jokes by Jilly Taylor, and a number of
outrageous skits by golf club mem-
bers, mostly ladies, but assisted by
funny man and fellow golfer, Geoff
Gardner. See you there next time.
