Sticks to Stadium: Last Thursday a group of Indigenous boys from local high schools including Canowindra joined together in the Sticks to Stadium program run by Glenn Liddiard from the Penrith Panthers. The boys watched the team train, and then had a look around the training facilities. Glenn spoke about the importance of engaging in a positive work ethic at school, within the workforce and in all aspects of life. To encourage the boys with this he has donated 2 Panthers jerseys that will be presented to the 2 boys that demonstrate this ethos.
Be Vigilant: After a spate of car break ins in and around Canowindra late last week residents are reminded to be vigilant and lock all cars and houses at night. Also it is a good idea to remove valuables from your car.
