A member of our group had been researching a local airman Wallace Stillard who was killed in a plane crash in the 1940's at Wee Jasper. An account of the accident was in the Canberra Times and can be read here and in The Argus here. There is also mention of this gentleman in the Airways Museum . Wallace was born in 1918 at Cobram, Victoria and the family had a farm in Barooga, NSW.
December's Meeting was our Christmas break-up dinner at the Barooga Sports Club. It was rather an eventful night with the weather blowing up and an almighty thunderstorm and downpour of rain which caused water to come flooding down the walls of the room we were have our meeting in and a was a bit of a distraction for our guest speaker to talk over.
Garry Jones from Cobram Community Enterprises spoke to our group on their program to assist communities in accessing funding through a fund raising program via the Bendigo Bank. There is assistance for particular projects and over $200 000 has been given in support to projects in the community. There are funds of up to $2000 available on a quarterly basis.
To be part of the program it is important to get the support of as many people in the community as possible. This requires them to simply pledge their Bendigo Bank account to assist this funding. The banks have these forms available or you can get more information from their website.
