THERE has been a suggestion from local Fire Authorities representatives in creating a fire break on the western side of Henty. Apparently a fire break, of at least 30 metres wide, is to be constructed. It has created some discussion and it will be interesting to see if the plan is accepted.
THE Australian Army Band Kapooka is appearing in the Henty Civic Centre (Community Club), this coming Saturday evening. Their performance has been organised by Henty’s Rotary Club and the profits from the event will go to Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre. This centre still requires significant fundraising to complete the outfitting of the accommodation and care rooms.
A number of our community have already had the need of the services of the centre. Children from our school bands have been presented with a free ticket; provided they are accompanied by a paying adult.
Over the past month the Rotary Club has also run a raffle for double passes to the Albury Gold Class cinema and a collection of 5c coins at various spots around the town has raised in excess of $300.
Added to the donations will be half the proceeds of last Sunday's Lutheran Ladies' Guild casserole luncheon. This has been a concerted effort by the Rotary Club and the aggregate sum will be recognised as a Community effort. Bookings for the concert can be made at Dales Electrical. This is an experience that can be enjoyed by all ages as it not all marching music.
The band enjoy the opportunity to play a wide range of music, not just traditional marches. It is hoped everyone in Henty will have participated in some way; fundraising ends July, 2016 for this round of activities.
