ONE hundred and forty-six people thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment provided by John Wood and Chris Pidd in Carpe Diem.
Chris is general manager at Lifeline Albury Wodonga, and John is well known for his acting roles in both TV and film.
A small group also travelled from Culcairn to watch the southern NSW premier of the play. Humorous, at times poignant, but at all times indicating that support is what is required; someone that is willing to listen.
Greater Hume Council and other sponsors ensured that the evening was well catered for. A free meal, free show and a supper you had to fight for (it was so good), proved to be the perfect night. In addition, several Men’s Shed members and Mick Brougham offered to collect funds to aid the Friends of Nolan House.
Donations received amounted to $1201. The play was performed in Holbrook on the Saturday.
HENTY Men’s Shed is planning a busy month and there is not much time left to get it all done. A trip to Kerry and Jan Pietsch’s historic machinery collection is planned October 21. Ladies are welcome as Jan will be putting on an afternoon tea. The tour is expected to take some hours to complete. Carpooling will be sorted out following a barbecue prior to leaving at 1pm. Bookings are necessary and you will need to contact Russell Davies 0427 004 228 for further details.
