Well, who would have thought that when Michael Woods
brought to a meeting of the Rupanyup & District
Consultative Committee, a clipping from the paper,
advertising grants up to $60,000, for the building of new
men's sheds, that it would finally be officially opened by
Member for Lowan Ms Emma Kealy M.P.
I would like to congratulate & sincerely thank Rod & Jaye
for the tremendous effort of meeting that dead line & being
successful in gaining the grant for $60,000 from the
Department of health & Human Services, Strengthening
Men's Sheds Program, new buildings 2013. But this was
only part of the funds required to bring this building up to
this stage you see here today. The rest has come from
the generosity of the Rupanyup/Minyip Finance Group, the
management committee of our community bank,
sponsorship from Michael Woods, sponsorship from the
Woods' Farming & Heritage Museum, a grant from the
Australian Men's Shed Association, Rupanyup Major
Events, Rupanyup Lions Club, Yarriambiack Shire Council
Share Community Grants Program & 84 community
members who have paid $100 each inaugural
membership. On behalf of the Rupanyup & District
Consultative Committee I would like to sincerely thank all
those that have contributed financially to this wonderful
We want our shed to give you a reason to get up & keep
mentally & physically active. We want men to stay active

NEW EMERGENCY VEHICLE FOR
DUNMUNKLE CFA GROUP
The Dunmunkle CFA Group ( comprising CFA
brigades from Rupanyup, Minyip, Murtoa, Lubeck &
Coromby recently took ownership of a new Field
Command Vehicle ( FCV). The FCV, a new Ford
Ranger Mk11 Dual Cab 4x4, was purchased with
funding support from the Dunmunkle Group, each of
the member Brigades, the Victorian Government via
the Victorian Emergency Services Equipment
Program (VESEP) & a generous project grant from
the Rupanyup Minyip Community Bank Branches.
The initial seeding fund from the Community Bank
branches provided the impetus to gain further
financial & logistic support. The partnership of the
CFA brigades, District 17 & State CFA, the Victorian
Government (VESEP) & the Rupanyup Minyip
Community Bank Branches proved successful &
culminated in the new vehicle. The FCV, fully
operationally with emergency lights , sirens & radios
( CFA & UHF) is primarily designed to be a command
& control vehicle in emergency situations, in
particular fires both local & district. It will also be
engaged as a Strike Team Vehicle for major fires. As
a Dual Cab 4x4 it will provide transport for equipment
& personnel to fires & emergency situations. It will
also be used for transport of volunteers to training &
other related events.
The FCV is a welcome addition to the current CFA
vehicles in our area.

ANZAC DAY HISTORY
Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. At the beginning of WW1, Australia had
only been a federated nation for 13 years when Britain declared war in August 1914. Australia automatically
became involved. Australian and New Zealand troops formed part of the expedition that set out to capture
the Gallipoli peninsula so as to open up the Dardenelles. The objective was to capture Constantinople (now
Istanbul). The Gallipoli campaign lasted 8 months & over 8000 Australian soldiers died. Although the Gallipoli
campaign failed, the actions of the men involved left a powerful legacy. The first Anzac Day was held on
25th April 1916 when 2000 Australian & New Zealand troops marched through London. A London newspaper
dubbed them ‘The Knights of Gallipoli. Other services were held around Australia. During the 1920s, Anzac
Day became a national day of Commemoration for the more than 60,000 Australians who died during the
war. 1927 was the first time every state had a public holiday for Anzac Day. Later Anzac Day served to
commemorate the lives of all Australians who died in WW2 & all other conflicts in which Australia has been
involved. Today marches & services are held in every town & city in Australia & New Zealand & sporting
fixtures have become part of the day. The first Anzac day service in Rupanyup was in 1922. Lawson was
President of the RSSILA & Copley was secretary. The first march to be held on Anzac Day in Rupanyup was
in 1936 & in 1937 the Boy Scouts were invited to march. The next year the Cubs, Girl Guides & Brownies
were also invited. The Horsham Pipe Band started coming to Rupanyup to lead the march in the early 1940s
& have led the march ever since. After the WW2 the march was made up of veterans from both wars. Today
only two veterans remain.
The next meeting will be held on Friday, April 15th at 2 pm. Please note the change of date. All members
welcome. Volunteers will be selling Anzac tokens in the week prior to Anzac Day. Please support the RSL in

RUPANYUP FOOTBALL & NETBALL CLUB
Well that time of year has come around again & this Saturday we will be
taking on the Southern Mallee Giants for their first ever encounter in the
Horsham District League at the Rupanyup Recreation Reserve. A lot of hard
work from our coaches, recruiters & committee has gone into making all of
our sides more competitive going forward over this off-season, but the real
work starts now the home & away season is upon us. Our pre-season has
been very fruitful for both netball & football beginning with our match against
the Marnoo ‘Sons of Guns’, a Wednesday night game against the Stawell
Warriors & an earlier netball practice match against Horsham Saints, all of
which were very competitive affairs. The signs are positive at this early stage
& we look forward to an exciting brand of football & netball during the 2016
Our club is an integral part of the local community we would love to see as many Rupanyup people as
possible make it to the game. Our players & committee get a huge buzz out of seeing the big crowds &
with a strong contingent of Beulah & Hopetoun supporters making the journey down the Henty Highway
we would love to see you there to give your support. After the match we will be holding a spit roast & salad
tea at the Community Centre, so we would ask players &/or families to supply a salad. The club would
also appreciate donations of slices & cakes for our afternoon teas each week for home games. This
Thursday night we will also be holding our annual guernsey presentation night & will be reading out all of
the sides that are taking part in Saturdays matches, so make sure you get down to the Rec Reserve to
cheer on the boys & girls & hang around for a BBQ tea & presentations afterwards. Last but not least, a
huge thank you must go out to all of our committee, players, sponsors & supporters that have helped out
during the pre-season. Your hard work & commitment to our great club does not go unnoticed & is
fundamental to our success going forward. Keep up the great work & let’s have a fantastic season 2016.
CARN THE PANTHERS!

The facility is being well used for local sporting & social functions, as well as business & industry forums.
The committee has successfully maintained the building & managed to continue improvements eg
installation of the cool room, additional shelving. Planning for the entrance on the west side of the building
is underway, dependent on attracting funding.
All bookings & enquiries may be made through Carling [email protected] Fees have been reviewed
& are available from Carling. Meetings are charged at $20/hour & functions at $330. A reminder that the
kitchen is a registered food premise & is available for hire.
The debt on the facility, initially $100,000 interest free loan from Yarriambiack Shire, has been reduced to
$52,500. The committee thanks the Rupanyup Recreation Reserve Committee for their recent
contribution of $7500, income from the new NBN tower at the grounds. Further sponsorships are

Dunstan, G.D Sales & Donald Hotel sponsored Donald’s day. Tyler’s Hardware of Rupanyup, Stawell & Horsham
sponsored Minyip’s day. G.B Corsivia Shot Shells & Targets contributed to the raffles & sponsored all the prizes for the
overall winners with their combined 2-day scores on handicap. First draw in Donald’s raffle was a PUMA .22 rifle which
was won by Mick Lewis from Barham. First draw in Minyip’s raffle was a PUMA .22 rifle which was won by Nathan
Power from Ararat/Stawell. A massive thank you to all the ladies & gents who worked in the kitchen at Donald & Minyip,
these ladies & gents are an invaluable asset in running these days. Thank you to all workers, office staff, kitchen staff,
set up crew, manual trap workers & anyone else who helped make the days a great success. There is so much that
goes on behind the scenes to make these days a success. Thank you Weirs IGA who donated the coleslaw for the
