Vale Noreen Hayes
A long standing member of our Glebe community, Noreen Hayes, died recently aged 88.. She was interviewed for Rearview several years ago and her memories of early Glebe were delightful. She was a wonderful, earthy countrywoman.
Book sale raised over $5,000 for Glebe Public school readers
From Debs Hannon, Book Sale Coordinator, Glebe Public School:
We ran a very successful book sale back in May and raised over $5000, which has been used to buy 750 new readers and literary resources for the school.
No doubt many of your members not only donated but also bought books over that weekend. We are extremely thankful for your members’ ongoing support of our school.
You may be interested that we are also having a book sale at Glebe Markets on 4 August to sell the left over good quality fiction from the May collection.
