Pa was always happy to
see me. He always made
people happy. Damon.
My Pa was a great man.
He was always a true
gentleman, especially with
Nana and of course, the
nurses. I remember every
time I saw him he would ask
how my footy was going. In
one of my last visits he said,
“Have a good season” and
I will always remember the
last words he said to me:
“See ya later Jakey boy.”
We love you Pa, forever in
our hearts. Jake.
A special thank you to Dr
Michael Fitzgerald and

WELLINGTON residents and
visitors will have the chance to
experience the RAAF Base East
Sale exercise its Freedom of Entry
to the City of Sale during a special
parade on Friday, April 8.
Wellington Shire mayor Cr Dar-
ren McCubbin is delighted the RAAF is
marching through the centre of Sale exer-
cising this right for the first time in over
“In 1959 the City of Sale Council be-
stowed a Freedom of Entry to the City
document to the Base in recognition of
our ongoing mutual relationship,” Coun-
cillor McCubbin said.
A flypast of locally based aircraft will
herald the start of the parade which will
see around 200 Air Force personnel and
band march along Raymond Street. In ac-
cordance with tradition, a senior member
of the local constabulary will then chal-
lenge those entering the city, asking ‘Halt,
who comes here?’ at the half way point.
“When challenged by our local po-
lice, Senior Australian Defence Force
officer group captain Mark McCallum
will present the scrolled document giving
RAAF the Freedom of Entry to the City,
enabling the Parade to enter and proceed
and salute those on the dias at the clock
Cr McCubbin said the RAAF Base
East Sale continued to be a major part of
the fabric of Sale’s history and was an im-
portant part of Wellington’s future.
“Recent and future growth at the base
is a boost not only for our local commu-
nity but for the greater Gippsland region
and the state of Victoria,” he said.
“Freedom of the City clearly demon-
strates the high esteem and respect the
community of Wellington Shire holds for
our locally based armed forces.”
Group captain McCallum said the
RAAF Base was looking forward to exer-
cising its rights to the city.
“RAAF Base East Sale is proud to
be part of the Sale and greater Gipps-
land communities and values the close
relationship that has formed over many
years,” group captain McCallum said.
“Freedom of Entry to the City of Sale
is a privilege that we value greatly and an
opportunity for the Base and its personnel
to be on show for the community.”
The Freedom of the City of Sale Pa-
rade will commence at 10.30am sharp on
Friday, April 8 from the junction of Fit-
zroy and Raymond Streets; ending at ap-
proximately 11.15am just after the junc-
tion of Macalister and Raymond Streets.
Flying start to freedon parade

McCubbin and Senior Australian Defence Force
officer group captain Mark McCallum are looking

Sale on April 8.
Assistance: Yarram SES volunteers were called to clear trees from the Wood-
side Carrajung Road on Friday morning when storms hit.
Caravan damage: SES volunteers brought out the chainsaws to remove a fallen branch off a caravan in
the McLoughlins Beach area last Friday following the storms.
Storm surge: local CFA and SES teams attended to a tree down across the
South Gippsland Highway at Welshpool on Friday, which stopped traffic. The
tree was one of many to come crashing down during storms that brought much
needed rain to the area.
Big tree down: a large tree came down across the South Gippsland Highway
at Welshpool on Friday afternoon, which also damaged power lines. The road
was closed for over an hour while local CFA and SES crews removed the tree,
once the power lines were no longer live. Police also attended the scene, di-
verting traffic via Telegraph Road. Trucks were unable to traverse the detour
and so remained stopped on the highway while the tree was cleared.
LOCAL businesses in Yarram have scooped the pool at
last night’s Wellington People’s Choice award presentations
in Sale. Toms Cap Vineyard Retreat, Tarra Valley Caravan
Park, Best Friends Caravan Park, Forest Lodge and the Tarra
Festival were among the winners. Full details of all the wins
