Winners had the right connections
THEY all have a connection with Junabee or Jingarry state schools, so it was poetic justice that they were winners of the Junabee and Jingarry State Schools reunion fundraiser.
Scotney's Tyre and Battery Service, together with Cooper Tyres, donated tyres to the value of $800 as the major prize in the raffle to raise funds for a reunion of past students from the two schools reunion on Saturday, October 13.
Roger Scotney, who also was MC, said it was something special to help fundraise and be part of the schools reunion.
"I went to both schools," Mr Scotney said. "When one closed I then went to school at the other."
First prize went to Lyn Kelly, whose husband Paul's family attended Jingarry State School before its closure.
Second place of a $100 voucher from Betta, was won by Doug Coy, who was a second-generation pupil at Junabee State School, along with his mother.
