Nine Naponda Hospital Auxiliary members have been rewarded for their long service.
United Hospitals Auxiliary state president and regional representative Marion Dickens presented the long service pins and certificates at July’s annual general meeting.
Shirley Burge was awarded for 30 years of service, while Belinda Whittakers, Pam Ellerman and Belinda Perrett were recognised for 25 years.
Toni Whelan and Maree Croskell were honoured for 20 years and Helen Lester, Jan Macknight and Muffi Gove for 10 years.
Mary Allitt also received a certificate for celebrating a milestone birthday.
Belinda Whittakers was re-elected president at the AGM, with Ann Morwood her vice president, Corrine Ellul as secretary, Cleone McAllister as assistant secretary and publicity officer, and Jan Harris as treasurer.
Pam Ellerman continues as Naponda Community Store manager.
Mrs Whittakers said Naponda was committed to working hard in the next 12 months to support the Deniliquin Hospital.
‘‘We are happy to continue with the successful Naponda Farmers’ Market on the second Saturday of each month at the lawns adjacent the Peppin Heritage Centre,’’ she said.
‘‘Stop by this weekend for a delicious barbecue breakfast of bacon and egg rolls, sausages and vegie burgers accompanied by Gillian’s glorious coffee.
‘‘There’s also stalls with scrumptious Indian vegetarian food, pork pies, sushi and farm fresh vegetables. An amazing variety of fresh breads, meats, wines, sweets and an array of chutneys, pickles and sauces.’’
Mrs Whittakers said such a successful year had inspired the auxiliary to extend the opening hours of the Cressy St Naponda Community Store to 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday and Saturdays from 9.30am to noon.
‘‘We encourage everyone to drop in and peruse the many and varied products available created by our local talented suppliers,’’ she said.
