Berrigan Community Airlines (not a real airline) has just released a limited amount of tickets for their first ever MYSTERY FLIGHT (not a real flight). Come with us for the trip of a life time to 3 undisclosed destinations around the world (not really we won't leave Berrigan) and experience International cuisine prepared by International Chef Hazel McDiarmid (this part is true).

Our Captain (not a real pilot) is one of the best in the business and has navigated the globe for over 20 years (not really). The flight will depart from the Berrigan International Airport (Berrigan Memorial Hall). Have a few drinks from the airport bar while you are waiting to board the flight (drinks available at club bar prices) . Once we are in the air the BC Airlines bar will open for your convenience (for those nervous passengers to calm their nerves). BC Airlines flight crew (not a real flight crew) will ensure your trip is one to remember.

Tickets are limited (this is true) so grab your passport, get down to the club and get your ticket for the flight of a lifetime! Ticket sales close on Thursday 15th April if not sold out prior (but it will sell out fast so get in quick). All money raised will go to Berrigan Community Golf & Bowling Club. For more info contact Janice Graham or Mandy Bonat. Tickets on sale tomorrow.

Nangunia South School

The Nangunia South School was established in April 1899 as a provisional school made of logs, joined together by mud. The school was located opposite the site (Northern side) of the Nangunia Hotel and Post Office (one building) which was destroyed by fire in 1903.  Therefore the school was situated where the Mulwala Canal is […]
