Photo Correction: Last week’s Rally Car article photo was actually of the lovely ladies from Parkes Décor who were posing at their stall at the Parkes Field Day. The correct photo of Kerin Hanna and Mark Louez of Just4Kids, who visited Parkes Public last Friday is above. Apologies for the confusion!
C3 Cycle Stop: The Pink Orchid was the venue for a well earned break for the C3 Cyclists this week. Staff at the café made a mascot for the cylists, who raise money for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.
St Paddy’s Day Fun: Last Thursday the afternoon began with a St Patrick’s Day treasure hunt for children at KidzCare Parkes, who discovered a rainbow and a pot of gold treat after solving the final clue!
Help Fijian Cyclone Victims: Parkes Fijians Association are raising funds, school supplies and other goods to help a Fijian school which was devastated by Cyclone Winston in February. The friends and members of the Parkes Fijians Association would like to make a difference to Nasautoka Village. It is said to be one of the most affected village in the Wainibuka area, losing 30 houses including the school which was their evacuation centre. There is a Parkes connection with the Nasautoka District School, through the Parkes Christian School. Last year some students, teachers and parents from Parkes Christian School visited this school on a missionary trip. A cake stall will be held on Saturday 2nd April from 9am until 12pm outside Parkes Stationery and Office Furniture. All
monies raised from the stall will be going directly to the school to assist with replenishing school supplies for the children and teachers. Also on this day, Parkes Stationery and Office Furniture will be a drop off donation point for goods such as books, toys and clothes. School supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, notebooks and the like would be greatly appreciated. Monetary donations can also be made.
