Ahh...September! The magpies are swooping, the days are longer, the sunshine warmer, the crops are growing, the annual golf tournament is nigh, and the winter sports are in finals mode. There’s a lot to look forward to during Spring in Wycheproof.
For many of us it is annual general meeting (AGM) season, and clubs and organisations are looking for committee members. Wycheproof VISION is one of them, with the AGM scheduled for 6.30pm Tuesday 27 September at the Wycheproof Railway Station. All positions are vacant and nominations must be received by 19 September. Another organisation holding an AGM this month is the Wycheproof Lawn Tennis Club, Monday 12 August at 7pm at the Royal Mail Hotel. A committee position in a volunteer organisation is something to be seriously considered by young volunteers; it looks great on a resume and you can learn valuable skills that can be used in the workplace.
Volunteering is vital for our community. Volunteering is a great way for new residents to learn more about our town and meet new friends. Several groups are urgently seeking volunteers including: Wycheproof Op Shop, Wycheproof Cancer Support Group, Friends of EWHS– Wycheproof, and Wycheproof Community Museum. If you can help call in to WCRC.
Speaking of volunteers, one of our most prominent volunteers who has served the community over many years is Cr Stuart McLean. He and Nuccia, who served as president of Wyche 2010 for two years 2007-2009, will be guests of honour at a community farewell on Friday 9 September from 6.30pm at the Royal Mail Hotel. All are welcome.
Take some time this month to prepare for the 125th annual Wycheproof A&P Society Show on Wednesday 19 October. Schedules are out and there are many great events to enter. Wycheproof VISION is again hosting the Scarecrow Competition and we hope to see many creative and colourful entries from individuals, families and community organisations.
Congratulations to all the football, netball and hockey teams on a competitive 2016 season. All the best for Wycheproof teams in finals over coming weeks.
