Tucker 'n Tales Book Launch
The Latrobe Valley and Mountain Rivers groups
book, Tucker n Tales, was launched
at the Toongabbie hall on February 28.
Tucker n Tales includes a collection
of 70 stories, recipes, photographs, local artists
work and childrens art work.
The beautifully printed book represents the diversity
of the area and gives an insight into the development
of the community. Guest speakers at the launch
were Brendan Jenkins and Kath McEntee.
Deb Bye was an entertaining MC and the gathering
was buoyed along by African music played by Mariama
and Forday, and classical piano played by Qi Sun.
The warm and friendly atmosphere encouraged networking
and a wonderful supper, featuring some of the
books recipes, was supplied by Margo Wheelan.
The group has sold more than 300 copies of Tucker
n Tales to date and the women involved
in the project are very pleased with its success.
The group is grateful to Latrobe City, the State
Government, Women who Mean Business, the Rural
Womens Network and the school community,
all of whom provided invaluable support.
New projects are being discussed for the future
though all are in favour of a short respite first.
