Ideas flourish: Southern Brook Community Association committee members back Paul Antonio, Cheryl Lawrence, Carmel Sands, Mike Vincent, front Dennis Saunders, Allen Lawrence, Dianne Dwyer and John Dwyer (absent Johnno den Hollander).DESPITE the cold it was pleasing to see a good crowd turn up at the annual post-seeding casserole tea night at the local Southern Brook Hall on June 20.
Southern Brook Community Association president John Dwyer welcomed the gathering and made special acknowledgement to the Shire of Northam for the recent maintenance and repairs to the historic 105-year-old hall.
A sign-posted disabled set down area making easy access to the hall and surrounds was well noted and accepted along with hall maintenance to walls and flooring.
The hall soon warmed up with much chatter and the smell of country casserole dishes and plenty of rice that tempted taste buds.
Dessert followed with tasty cheesecake and home-made apple tart.
It was great to have the company of Kerry and Barbara Saunders, Craig and Fiona Hitchcock and Carmel Sands, all who travelled up from Perth to attend.
Families mingled throughout the evening and included Paul Antonio, Johnno den Hollander, Joan, John and Dianne Dwyer, Angela and Jacob Fitzgerald, Allen and Cheryl Lawrence, Ted and Lorna Leeming, Dennis and Kathy Saunders, Mike Vincent and Mark Wilding.
Congratulations to the parents and siblings of new babes in the area over the past six months.
Nathan and Kylie Lawrence with the arrival of their first born, a son Veejay Nathan. Warren O’Neill and Louise Holder on the birth of their first child, a boy Hamish George.

Well wishes to local resident Robyn MacMillan who is recovering in hospital after an unfortunate fall on her property.
The catch up at the social event spurred committee members to meet at the hall early this month to discuss, progress and action events and projects for the next year.
The next Southern Brook community calendar event for members and friends is the annual spring picnic to be hosted by Ted and Lorna Leeming at Ullaring on October 20, from midday onwards.
