No trivial matter at Quota

Narooma High School’s Cattle Show Team had great community support at Quota’s February Trivia, including from many Agriculture students.

Two of their members, Scotty Negus and Georgie Brown, kicked off the evening by thanking everyone for attending.

The funds raised will help the presenters with accommodation at local shows and at the Royal Canberra and Sydney shows.

The winning team was Rapley’s Rebels, who generously donated their $100 prize to the students.

Jan Rapley’s team included Kathy Stockings, Jane McLuskey, Warwick Huntsdale, Keith Tiller, John White, Karon White and Karen Mallett.

The winning Squiggle was drawn by the team at Table 4, the Trivia Tragics, whose members included Lynda Simpson, Archie Cowie, Pauline Wilcock, Clare Cork, Mark Beaver, Sally James and Bronwyn Glyde. Their drawing of “Future Farmers” earned the most money in the “coin vote”.

Cattle Show team member Grace Dibden won the vegetable and fruit tray in the raffle draw.

Congratulations, as well to the students at tables 8 and 5, who were the only teams to get a perfect score at the table quiz.

Quota’s next trivia night will be held on May 17 for the Narooma Public School P&C.

Narooma Vinnies

Men’s Clothing Needed

The Narooma Vinnies Centre is in real need of good quality men’s summer clothing.

We all know that men like to get value from their clothes but that means they keep them until all they seem  fit for is the rag bin. So, not a lot of saleable men’s clothing is donated. Vinnies would be really grateful if you gentlemen out there could have a good sort of your wardrobe  and see if any items are suitable for our Centre. Of course we are always looking for donations of sheets and blankets, especially now that the nights are cooling down.
