Sunshine Clubs: The Parkes and District Historical Society is celebrating Heritage Week this year celebrating 80 years of 2PK and 2PK/ROK FM. As part of the topic Speaking Voices, the successful 2PK Sunshine Clubs will be included, which formed part of the radio station and raised so much money for the Royal Far West Health Scheme. The Historical Society would like to make contact with the Sun- shine Clubs at Forbes and Trundle. Please call Yvonne Hutton on 0418674 261.
Debutante Ball: The theme of the Anglican Debutante Ball on Friday, 5th May is Glitz and Glamor to be held at the Robert Wilson Auditorium of the Parkes League’s Club. The 20 Debutantes and their part- ners invite the community to St. George’s Anglican Church at 15 Church Street, for the viewing at 6pm. The Debutantes will support the Starlight Foundation this year. Gold coin donation entry to the viewing will assist this charity.
From the church they will be driven to the League’s Club in vintage cars provided by the Parkes Antique Motor Club. The debutantes will make their time-honoured and traditional entrance into society at the ball. The debutantes and their partners will be presented to Reverend Ron Spindler, Anglican Rector of St. George’s Parkes. The Matron for the ball is Norma Garment, while the duties of flower girls will be carried out by Lilly Phillips and Daisy Rice
