This week in the Tarrangower Times


Olivia is five - and there's a party!

Olivia Sonsie turned five on September 17. 

Readers may remember our front page in June 2014 when we appealed for help for the family after Olivia was diagnosed with leukaemia and commenced a course of chemotherapy at the Royal Children’s Hospital. That course is now reaching its end, and on Saturday 24 September (tomorrow) parents Amy and Aiden are hosting a get-together at their home to thank all those who have supported them through this difficult time.  

Maldon CFA Open Day

Everyone is welcome, especially kids, to the Maldon CFA Open Day on Sunday 2 October.

Starting at 10.30am with a (bushfire) Fire Ready presentation to help you prepare for the coming bushfire season, which will be upon us as soon as the weather begins to warm up. Followed at 11.30am with a fire extinguisher demonstration. 

At 11.45am Brigade members will demonstrate how to use a fire blanket and Maldon’s Tanker One crew will practice a ‘burn over’ exercise at noon with the fire truck’s sprays on full bore.

The station and our fire fighting vehicles will be open for your inspection, plus there will be a sausage sizzle until 1.30pm. 

Portraits for Respect 

Cafe Maldon hosted ‘Portraits for Respect’ on Thursday last week. Sue Davidson from the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre committee and the Domestic Violence Working Group, with a backgound of nearly thirty years in violence prevention, officiated at the launch. 

The project – a co-operative effort by Maldon Hospital and the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre - has been most of a year in the making. It arose out of an awareness-raising workshop supported by Loddon-Mallee Women’s Health in November last year and consists of a photographic exhibition of community members displaying statements that challenge a culture which condones violence towards women. The photos were taken at the Maldon Market on March 13th with market patrons holding prepared slogans or messages they wrote themselves.
