The club is open to people aged 10-17. To take part all they need to do is go to the library to register and collect a reading record. After reading 20 books, and receiving small prizes on the way, readers will get a ticket for the major prize draw in their age category. The more you continue to read, the more tickets you get and the greater your chance of winning a fantastic prize. The major prizes will be drawn on Friday January 22, followed by a barbecue. The Summer Reading Club is held in conjunction with the popular Public Library School Holiday Program. oooo Theres no stopping the fitness activities, bush walking, cross country running and social cycling of the NAH Striders, even in the hot Centralian festive season. The stride and stretch sessions at the Head Street Oval are at the later time of 6.30pm on Wednesdays. Its all about recreation and health, well-being and safety in the home and workplace. Intervals, drills, stride correction and coordination are held at various times at Head Street Oval on Saturday morning. Short to medium distance cross country runs/walks are held from Head Street on Tuesdays and Thursdays at various times while the longer distance cross country runs are early on Sunday mornings. Theres bush walking and cross country activities, including camping, abseiling and rock climbing; also recreational cycling on bike paths and tracks in the early mornings for fun and lifestyle enhancement. And all are open to anyone interested. People can choose their own distance, pace or grade. This is not a club and all activities are merely under the name of NAH Striders. For more information contact lifestyle coach Noel Harris on 0428 523 491. oooo There will be little rest for the new committee and volunteer staff of the National Pioneer Womens Hall of Fame over the festive season. They are busy preparing an exhibition for Womens History Month in March. The exhibition will focus on the role of women in the history of food production in Central Australia. There will be a short break, for a week, when the Hall closes from next Thursday until Monday, January 4. So anyone visiting town, or a resident, who would like to see the two main current exhibitions Ordinary Women Extraordinary Lives Women First in Their Field and Women at the Heart should go to the Hall, in the old Gaol in Stuart Terrace, between 1pm and 4pm before then. oooo In 2010, Araluens ReelPix Film Club celebrates its ninth year and again looks to offer its members a range of benefits.
