We all have a story to tell, but I think the older you get the more inspiring and mind- blowing your stories become. A few weeks ago I asked for accounts of the heat in 1939 and 94-year-old Keith Hayden from Narromine surprised me with a call on a Friday night with a detailed recollection of his experience. You can read it on page 9. He is a man of many surprises and we might run some more of his stories in the future.
We have a bumper edition of 16 pages today with lots of other news about events, achievements and places to visit. Our Just a Short Drive to Cowra feature on pages 6 and 7 will introduce you to a unique village in Australia. We also have a reader’s com- petition to win a voucher – make sure you complete the entry form on page 16 and drop it at Onnies.
As we celebrated International Women’s Day on Wednesday, let’s be grateful for all the women in our lives, whether they are our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, partners or best friends.
