Inside this issue:
What can five dollars buy these days? If you were one of the 50 adults and kids who came thefirst monthly Community Dinner at the Rec Reserve, you might be able to guess the answer.Munching away on dips and bikkies followed by spaghetti bolognaise, tender roast beef andlamb, spuds, pumpkin and veges, most of us were fairly chuffed at getting a bargain for ourmoney. When the passion fruit pav and home made apple crumble arrived there was,immediately, just a little room left in our bulging tummies for something sweet. As it turns out,the apple crumble was an afterthought, but after a quick trip down Spring Valley to pick roadside apples, it soon became a reality. Not a doubt in our collective minds that this was fivedollars well spent.!!!
 “Dress to impress” was the theme and we saw some stunning outfits on our bar and kitchen
staff and on many of the community members who came to join us. Barmaid, Anna, wore anexquisite formal gown with heels guaranteed to be thrown off before the evening was morethan 30 minutes old. Anna was perfectly complimented by her husband, John, looking mostdebonair in his suit and thongs. Mick Dunn, for the second time in the past 12 months donneda suit, while Sharon, gorgeous in pink and Trev in his glad rags looked very up-market. Some of 
us chose to keep our fashion flair less obvious, with a variety of trackies and workmen’s gear,
mingling with the suits and gowns.Kareoke by Paul Hendry kept Gerri and the kids close to themicrophone all evening.Community Dinners happen on the first Friday evening of eachmonth. They are a great way to catch up with people and have anaffordable meal and a few drinks in a family friendly atmosphere. Adults and teens can eat for $5 per head, Primary kids for $3 perhead and tots and kinder kids free. The bar serves drinks at veryreasonable prices and is open from 6pm till about 9.30.While we cannot guarantee full roast dinners each month, you canlook forward to being served lashings of great home made food, allcooked by us here in Flowerdale. We recommend that you arriveto eat before 7.30, as the food disappears rather quickly.

Junior Youth Group has had a very exciting month, with the completion of the cubby house and I must say itslooking great, also our camp to Harriettville from the 18th-20th March. A big thankyou goes to Gary for
lending a hand with building the cubby with the children without him we‘d be still putting it together.
Well what an experience. Rules were as follows:
we are all friends and under no circumstances were electronic devices allowed to come.
The friends part was accepted easily but ho my ―what do you mean no ds‘s, Ipods etc?‖ as we set off at 2.30pm
Friday afternoon with two buses and my van
34 children and 6 carers.In Seymour only one child was locked in the public toilet but swift thinking and no panic got that child out safe andsound (phew).We arrived late to a spaghetti bolognaise dinner which was very much needed then bed.A good nights sleep was needed for the next days busy schedule. 34 children were divided into 3 groups: The
Yakkadee‘s (Yak & Mr D), Rodreekez (Rod & Kerry) and the Tnneries (Tanya & Henry). Each group alternated
three activities in the morning these were kayaking, ropes and flying fox. After a sausage roll and salad lunch wealternated another three activities in the afternoon these wer tubing, town walk and fishing/gold panning. Then aroast beef dinner.Overall everyone had a blast. I fell in on the kyak which caused alot of laughs. The flying fox, ropes were a hit andthe tubing was a scream, even though the weather was warm the crystal clear river was freezing.After dinner we had a bonfire with marsh mellows and then bed.At 6.30am Sunday morning Rod woke everyone up for an hour bush walk. Allthe children were starving so somechildren devoured three serves of baconand eggs and three serves of cereal. Nofood was left uneaten that morning.After breakfast it was time to pack up andload the buses and car. We had a bit of ashowcase of talents with singing, dancingand piano being represented in style.Free time was had before someextraordinary running races. There washop skip & jump, relay, funny walk relay,walking relay.After lunch we all boarded the buses forhome. After the events of the day we weresure they would sleep all the way home but
we weren‘t so lucky. Each child and leader 
had a ball.
