Nieuvision Finance Consultant, Ann-Marie Bosco, visited her hometown of Wudinna in September for the Centenary Celebrations and shares details of the event here …
It was great being back home in Wudinna, South Australia, where I spent most of my childhood, to celebrate the historic town’s 100 years. It had been a couple of years since my last visit to the Eyre Peninsula and the festivities were a perfect opportunity for me to catch up with family and old friends that I haven’t seen in a while.
After travelling to Wudinna on the Thursday on a joyous 8 hour bus trip, I spent much of the Friday in Port Lincoln catching up with some wonderful clients, both new and old. In the evening, back in Wudinna, I attended the fabulous Winds of Change Art Exhibition which was part of the township’s 100th Anniversary celebrations and then headed off for a quiet drink at the local watering hole, where much of the catching up with family and friends occurred.
On Saturday I attended the Wudinna & District Show where it rained pretty much the entire day, but not one festival goer let it dampen the atmosphere. People came from all over the Australia & even New Zealand to help celebrate this wonderful milestone. My favourite part of the day was the sheep shearing contest, there is nothing like the smell of sheep to bring back old memories of time spent at home in the shearing shed with my family. I also got to make a few purchases, including a beautiful locally hand-poured candle from EcoWud Candles.
On Sunday it was time to say goodbye to Wudinna and fly back to Adelaide via Port Lincoln but I’ll have great memories to share from the wonderful time I had back in the fabulous place where I grew up.
Congratulations to all involved in the organisation of the celebrations over the weekend, what a great weekend.
Wudinna – See you again soon.
