A wrap of what's happened and what's on its way.
ROW YOUR BOAT
A burst of winter sunshine helped make for a memorable outing on the Moyne River last weekend.
The Port Fairy Heritage Boat was taken out on the water with a morning session for lady rowers, followed by a mixed rowers session in the afternoon. The committee behind the heritage boat has held its annual general meeting with 26 financial members now on board.
A launch will be held on Friday for the Port Fairy Cycling Without Age project.
Driven by the Great South Coast leadership program, cycling without age received a $15,000 grant from Moyne Shire Council. The launch will be held at Reardon Theatre at 2pm.
A photographic exhibition to be launched at the F Project in Warrnambool on Friday night will feature women from Port Fairy and Koroit.
Nonagenarian is a display of 16 works by former Moyne Gazette photographer Christine Ansorge, featuring people over 90.
Among Ansorge's subjects are Koroit's Kath Scott and Port Fairy's Tess King.
The opening night begins at 6pm with the exhibition running to September 15.
Port Fairy Community House will host a women's weekend this Saturday and Sunday.
A range of guests will host workshops as part of the weekend activities.
Included in this is Moyne Health Services chair Karen Foster, who will present a Your Life on Purpose workshop.
Ms Foster said the workshop was aimed at helping women live a more purposeful life.
"It will be about being proactive and having a vision on what you want to achieve," Ms Foster said.
Other guest speakers include Port Fairy artist Chelsea Fox, who will host a session on how to create mosaic artwork.
LETTER TO EDITOR
From Clare Atkins, Port Fairy
Port Fairy needs footpaths that go somewhere.If there is no continuity, a footpath is not much use to someone relying on wheels, or with walking problems. There are no footpaths leading to the riverside precinct, no footpaths to the George Dodds or Russell Clarke reserves and no footpath to Blarney Books.There is no footpath along Campbell Street, linking the sports facilities and the school. In Regent Street, there are six lonely bits of path, not connected. We need a footpath strategy to build and link paths.
