Sunday morning a week ago it was time to head home to Rushworth for reunion #3, the 30th birthday of the Waranga News.
Rather than try to contain the history of the paper in a couple of lines, I will just post this page Mary Jo put together for the 30th birthday edition of the paper:
People who have worked on the paper over the years and their family (including a lot of Fortunas) and friends got together for lunch and story-telling, disputes over the details of history and a lot of “wow, you got old” moments.
The lunch on offer that day was truly spectacular. Pork on a spit with salads and potatoes followed by cheesecake, fruit flan and the ultimate Aussie dessert….pavlova. I couldn’t have asked for a more delicious, more appropriate country meal for my return to Rushworth.
I spent the following week in Rushworth, sleeping in, pottering about the house and sitting by the fire. I will post some photos from the week later, but right now I need to warm up my toes…it’s soooo cold in Melbourne (and I think I’m getting a cold…)
