The hay production expertise currently offered at Lucerne Foods,combined with that of the dry land farming practices of West Wyalong and irrigatedproduction from Forbes, increases the range of support the business can offer.Matt and Richard are currently implementing new office systems to network with the otherMcClintock locations, so that parts and machinery can be sourced closer and delivered quickerwhen needed, reducing costs and down time for farmers.Lucerne Foods Farm Machinery Centre will retain the current team of local staff, and theKubota and Krone stable of machinery.

Canowindra Cricket Club came agonisinglyclose to winning the Doug Wright Shield afterfalling to Grenfell by only 3 runs last Saturday.In the first year of the new twenty20 competi-tion Canowindra had played very well in theprevious rounds with strong wins over Carcoarand Valleys so confidence was high headinginto the final.
Bowling first Canowindra’s Nick Guthrie re-
moved danger man Alec McSpadden for 0.Terry Knight and Henry Hunt then started apartnership that frustrated the Canowindrateam with many balls falling just out of reach.Canowindra were bowling and fielding welland after 10 overs Grenfell were restricted toonly 1/26. The runs started being scored alittle more freely after this before Nick Travesremoved Knight for 24. Dallas Hazell was thenrun out for 12 before Peter Guthrie took twowickets in the last couple of overs. Grenfellfinished their 20 overs making 5/109 withHunt remaining 63 not out.Peter Guthrie took 2/11 while Nick Guthrie(1/15) and Nick traves (1/36) were the otherwicket takers.
Canowindra’s innings started well with Jake
Devlin hitting some big shots before falling for17. Brendan Traves fell fourth ball withoutscoring. Ian Morrow then joined Peter Guthriewith the score only on 23. These two movedthe score to 52 before Morrow fell for 11. NickGuthrie joined brother Pete and moved thescore along quickly with their run rate well
ahead of Grenfell’s and things were looking
good before Nick fell to an amazing outfieldcatch for 11. With the score on 76 work wasstill needed and Shaun Craven kept thingsticking over with two boundaries before fallingfor 13. With two overs remaining Canowindraneeded 19 runs and with Pete Guthrie still atthe crease looking in good form it still lookedpossible. Nine runs were scored off the secondlast over leaving 10 needed off the last over.Unfortunately however Guthrie was run outwith and the task was then just a little too farwith a six being needed on the last ball.Canowindra ended up with 6/106 and this wasa tough loss after what was a great effort withball and bat from the boys. Peter Guthrie wasthe stand out with the bat making 41 and al-most guiding the boys to victory. This was a
great effort in Canowindra’s first attempt at a
twenty20 competition and with a young teamcontaining only three players over 22 the boyshad a great run to make it this close to theshield. Next week the boys return to the regu-lar 40 over competition at home against Bowl-ing Club at home in Canowindra. A big thankyou to the Canowindra Bowling Club for theircontinued support.Due to space restraints this week, the resultsof the Canowindra Cricket Club versus TigersAustralia Day Twenty20 cricket match fund-raiser for the Jane McGrath Foundation will be
published in next week’s Phoenix. Trust me, it
will be worth the wait!

The 18 year old, cookin’ and sewin’ teacher who
arrived in Canowindra in May 1960 would neverhave dreamed of such a possibility. However herewe are many years later and the impossibility hasbecome a reality. I think that I can NOW call myself a local!I have always appreciated that Canowindra is astrong country community and it is the people andtheir efforts that make this town such a great place.Over time I have marvelled at the intelligence, tal-ents, strengths, hard work and sheer determinationof the people that live in this great and productivepart of Australia. It has been the people of our townwho have supported our family through good andbad times and we know that this support isextended to many other people.We need to be thankful for and continue to supportour local commercial economy, our caring medicalteams, the strong educational institutions, thededicated church and fantastic sporting and culturalgroups that operate within the area. So much of what makes Australia great is the time, effort andskills that people put in as volunteers.
“Use it or lose it” was a wonderful catch cry of a
fairly famous Cabonne resident a few years ago andI believe that this still applies today. Recently thelocal papers highlighted the need for more
volunteers in our local area. Can I suggest that “Useit or lose it” applies here. There are so many benefits
to people of all ages in becoming a volunteer. Youwill gain much more than you ever give, simply byvolunteering. I know that many of you here todayunderstand this as I can see many representatives of volunteer groups in the audience.For the young person so many job skills and workethic can be learnt by helping communityorganisations. It looks great on your CV as well. Forparents with children it enriches your life and sets agreat example to the young ones while involvingthem in the community also. For the older person itis a chance to share your life long skills, it helps tokeep you in touch with the wider world and keep
the “grey cells” active and firing. People say thatthey don’t have the skills to “be a secretary” or“write something for the newspaper” We all had to
start to learn these skills at some time. It is justimportant that you start and keep on supporting thecommunity that gives you so much.Whether you volunteer for Meals on Wheels, helprun the Swimming or Pony Club, help with Balloonfestivals or work at the Age of Fishes Museum or theHistorical Society or any of the many other organi-sations that the community offers, you have some-thing to give and great deal more to gain. Beingbored should never be an option in our community.I once made a list of all the organisations inCanowindra and there were more than 100 differentgroups
I’m not going to mention them all now but
I will say you will find a niche in one or more if you just offer your assistance. Or maybe you canencourage others to be a volunteer. Volunteeringand working with the community helps you toexpress your Australian spirit and it is good fun too.So - Use it or lose it.Finally, I would like to thank those people whonominated me for this award. You should be uphere with me as well. Your personal contribution tothe community is not overlooked and will beremembered. I would thank my many friends ineducation that I have worked with over lots of years,in all the community groups and of course the Ageof Fishes Museum staff and volunteers. My thankswould not be complete without mentioning the loveand support that I enjoy from Max, Deanna, Craigand Roy. Thank you.I am very grateful and humbled by this award andconsider it to be a wonderful way to start the newyear.Thank you to everyone concerned for the award andthis celebration of Australia Day.
Thank you.
