WINNER: Councillor Kerry Gibbons, Oberon and District Museum president Col Roberts and vice president Denise Harper at the 100 club raffle draw.

Last Sunday marked the draw for the Oberon Museum's latest fund raising initiative - a 100 club raffle with a prize of $1000.

Councillor Kerry Gibbons was invited to do the draw and the lucky winner was Roger Arrow.

The museum committee would like to thank all those who participated. It is anticipated that another 100 club will be introduced in the new year as part of the museum's ongoing fundraising ventures.

In some of the latest developments at the museum the slab has been laid for the new shed which will hopefully go up in the next couple of weeks.

Work has also started on the restoration of the roof of the cottage and, weather permitting, this should also finish in the coming weeks.

The Museum is open on both Saturday, 10am to 2pm and Sunday, 10.30am to 4pm this weekend. Come along and check out all the changes that have been made. It's well worth a visit!

And next door, the Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway precinct will also be opened this Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Entry is $5.
