A new name
THIS column has a new name and a
new focus, aiming to promote more
community events, news and to raise
more awareness of the groups we have
around us here in Gawler.
If you have a community service group
or event coming up, feel free to email
THE Rotary Club of Gawler Light
held its annual changeover dinner on
Saturday night at the Gawler Golf
Club, an event attended by nearly 60
people with many local community
service groups represented on the
night, including Gawler Council
Deputy Mayor Brian Thom.
Rob Eley was the outgoing president
and 2014/15 president Greg Morris was
sworn in; the night also saw the new
board members presented to the club.
Everyone had a great time and thanks
to the Gawler Golf Club for catering and
hosting the night.
Fully Sic Maate update
I USED to run the Gawler
Happenings Facebook page, on the
page I requested, on behalf of the
Rotary Club of Gawler Light, for a
bobcat operator to donate time or to
offer services at a reduced rate. Fully
Sic Maate (Steve Barbaro), of Angle
Vale, put his hand up to help out; he
did the job and only requested $50 for
I briefly thanked Fully Sic Maate in this
column, The Bunyip then ran a follow-
up on the Elvis look-alike and now, I am
pleased to say, that there is going to be a
'good news story' about him on the TV
program A Current Affair.
Thanks to The Bunyip for its article
and, once again, thanks to Fully Sic Maate
for his great work in the community.
THIS Saturday, from 7pm to 11pm,
sees the STARplex auditorium full of
women, stalls, entertainment and just
everyone together, having a great time,
in general, all in the name of raising
funds for the Cancer Council of SA.
Local business owner Annette Farrow,
Brent Matthews and Wendy Akeroyd have
been working hard getting stall-holders,
hairdressers and entertainers organised for
what looks like being a great night.
The tickets for the night are just $20,
with a glass of bubbly on arrival, the
chance to do some shopping, maybe a
spot of haircutting, see a drag show, a
fashion parade and even a silent auction.
Contact Brent for your tickets
(0431 705 588).
Bags of Love
BAGS of Love Market is on this week-
end in Craigmore; it's not that far from
Gawler and is for a great cause.
Bags of Love raises funds for non-profit
group Work Injured Resource Connection
and it was set up to help those who are off
work injured and are on WorkCover.
The group's main aim is to provide legal
advice, food hampers and support.
The market is on this Sunday, 10am to
3pm, Uley Road Hall, Craigmore.
There will be plenty to see, try and do

The winter rain has come on time
The grains are starting to sprout
The vegetable gardens are starting to bloom

I've probably ever seen
and soon to have a lovely blue ower
will be the soya bean.

how to utilise what we have.
Her first arrangement consisted of
five beautiful red roses with fern-like

should be 1½ times the height of the
