Birth Announcement

Congratulations to my grandson and Eden local Mitch Griffiths and his partner for the birth of their son Hunter at Canberra Hospital. Hunter is Nicole and Barry Griffiths’ second great grandson. “We are thrilled," Nicole said.

Eden Cash Mob

June’s Cash Mob saw the mob head to the top of town to support Crowies Matilda Servo which had a huge range from groceries, meat, fishing gear and camping gear to oysters and slushies. Nicole and Shane felt privileged to host us therefore put on some super specials.

Tony won the Our Eden Chamber of Commerce voucher while Cassie took home the shopping voucher donated by Roses Property Management. However, it was the youngsters who got to spend the vounchers with Kaitlyn Schofield spending the Roses Property Management voucher and Tyler Banks spending The Our Eden Chamber of Commerce voucher. A very shocked Brenda took home a new Television that was donated by Michelle and Michael from Eden Bedding and Furniture (pictures online).

Morning tea was enjoyed at The Deli where they treated us to some yummy morning tea treats and samples with the girls kept busy on the coffee machine.

If you were unable to make it on the day of the mob please try and call in sometime through the month. The next Cash Mob will be Saturday, July 1. The mob will meet on the sunny side of the street out the front of the IMB.

Pet of the week

Flash is a very friendly one year old male Border Collie x. He really loves the company of people and other dogs, walks well on the lead, but could do with a bit more training in that area. 

He knows how to sit, come, travels well in the car and will do anything to please. There is no malice in this dog but he needs a home where he will have a lot of company as he does not like being on his own. With his nature you could take him anywhere. Another dog in the family would be ideal. (View a picture of Flash online)
