COUNCIL has extended the expiry date of the 2019/20 waste vouchers. They will be accepted at the Oberon Waste Facility, as well as Burraga and Black Springs transfer stations, until August 31, 2020. The new waste vouchers will be issued with the 2020-21 rates notice in mid-August. The rates notice this year will be issued in August instead of July due to council utilising the one month extension provided by the Office of Local Government for councils to approve their 2020-21 Operational Plan in July rather than June. As such, first quarterly instalment payment will be due by September 30, 2020.
OBERON Can Assist's annual general meeting will be held on Thursday, August 27 at 6pm at the Oberon RSL Club. All welcome.
KNIT FOR CANCER
THE Cancer Council has released an optional crochet pattern for beanies and it is available at council - as is wool crying out to be knitted up into beanies for children, men or women undergoing cancer treatment who may need cheering up. All items need to be dropped off by August 26.
AT St Ignatius, mass is celebrated each Sunday at 8am. Observing social distancing, close to 100 persons can be admitted. Following on the recent recommendations of the government, the Bishop considers it appropriate that worshippers should use face masks as they attend church services. The same will be observed at St Vincent's, Black Springs, Saturday, 5pm.
