I am writing a very belated letter, publicly to admire, and thank the ladies of the Young branch of the Australian Red Cross Society for the catering they undertook for the performers and acrobats who came to Young for the Lambing Flat Festival some time ago now.
I have never seen such an array of fillings from sandwiches, slices and cakes, as well as tea, coffee and cordial provided.
I would also mention how polite the performers were and how grateful they appeared to be in relation to the food etc provided to them.
They also seemed to be quite anxious to talk to us while they were with us. It appeared that several of them had been here last year for the festival, and how much they were impressed with Young.
I would also like to thank the Presbyterian Church people for allowing us to use their hall and kitchen facilities, and for the provision of rooms for the performers to dress and change in.
Also, I’d like to thank the Visitors Information Centre of the then Young Shire Council for asking the Red Cross to do this catering.
Money raised from efforts such as this will be used locally, or in Australia, for humanitarian necessities for which the Red Cross is well known.

AUSTRALIA is the envy of the world. Our preferential voting system gives each individual the opportunity to express a preferred candidate for representation.
Our cabinet-style of government gives everyone in the cabinet room the chance to express a view about the subject under discussion.
Accordingly, when the plebiscite on gay marriage is held, there must not contain a biased or loaded question, framed in terms to favour a desired outcome.
Such a form would not give the people their rightful opportunity to express varied points of view.
The plebiscite ballot paper must allow all voters to convey their assessment of whether the title “marriage” is appropriate to any form of union between two (or more) persons, regardless of gender.
