Focus on Mothers
Mother’s Day activities across the Hilltops region are planned for this weekend. Today you’ll find hospital auxiliary stalls in Boorowa and Young, a Mother’s Day Concert with Alex Winnell at Young Library, while tomorrow the Uniting Church Mother’s Day Fete enters it’s 28th consecutive year.
It’s little more than a week before the Young Turf Club meeting will be held at Toompang Racecourse. There’s an extensive line up of horses and a big crowd expected. A free bus will run from the Young Hotel from 12.15pm, returning after the last race.
Young Society of Artists Inc. present a collection of Visual Arts entitled “Give it up for the Blokes” to be opened at 11am on Saturday May 26 at Burrangong Gallery, located at the town’s former railway station. Local bush poet and story teller Ted Webber will open the exhibition and tell the story of this iconic building. Each year the Young Society of Artists invite the men to step forward to be counted as a collective group.
Currently Meg Bailes photographic exhibition entitled “Circus at the End of the World” is on show.
If you enjoyed Dancing with the Stars, you’ll love Stars of Young, which sees local celebrities strut their stuff for charity next month. Early starters include Kim Goonan, David Hall, Renae McGovern and Emma Wark, who’ll be supported by dance teachers Lloyd Keenan and Leanne Simms. More identities will be revealed soon.
