Monthly newsletter launched for Merrijig
This month sees the start of a regular newsletter for Merrijig. Compiled by local author and long time Merrijig resident, Adele McCormack, the newsletter will be published in the
first week of each month. The creation of the newsletter has come from the community meetings between the Shire of Mansfield and the community held at the Merrijig Public Hall, which sort the opinions of local people about things seen as important in the district. One suggestion was the newsletter and Adele has agreed to take on the role. Please enjoy reading this, our first issue and if you have ideas for the next and subsequent issues contact Adele. So take a moment to click on the link and enjoy all the news Adele has compiled for us.
