A last comment on the new fire station at Henty before it is handed over to the local brigade - it’s nice! Large toilet and shower amenities, locker room, gym, an office that is bigger than the truck bay in the old station and room for two trucks; more concrete than this town has seen for many years and specific fire training facilities.
The forward planning of this facility and the local member’s input has ensured that the station will cater for a variety of engines and other emergency vehicles that may have to be temporarily located in Henty should the need arise to meet a significant crisis. We would have not received such a fine structure without the local brigade members taking on the First Responders role; we are now reaping the benefits.
A correction, Eastern Riverina Chronicle, Wednesday, May 23, 2018: “Henty Public School student Susie Male, received a Studio Medal resulting from her High Distinction in the 2017 speech exams. Bella Armstrong and Kate Lieschke were also the recipients of a well-deserved Speech Award.”
These students were in fact from St Paul’s Henty and not the Henty Public School.
Riverina Conservatorium of Music’s Murrumbidgee Magic Chorus travelled to Hobart a few weeks ago to participate in the annual Sweet Adelines’ Convention.
Murrumbidgee Magic, which had 24 singers on stage, came away with second place in the small chorus division. Two of our Henty members performed on stage; Sue Weston and Anne Maher.
Judging for the competition is conducted by four judges who come from America, each specialising in one of four categories: sound, music, expression and showmanship.
