    "MRS JO' CELEBRATES 95TH BIRTHDAY WITH FRIENDS
    Biggenden resident, Mrs Ellen Johannesen, affectionately known as Mrs Jo' celebrated her 95 th birthday with relatives and friends last Thursday.
    Mrs Johannesen is a resident of the Biggeden hospital and was a guest of the Uniting Church Women's Fellowship for afternoon tea on Thursday where she was presented with a small gift.
    Attending the party were her sister Mrs Gert Norman, and daughter in law Mrs Beryl Johannesen, both of Maryborough.
    During the day Mrs Johannesen was treated to a family dinner, while on the previous day she received yet another birthday cake at the Friendship Centre. Mrs Johannesen enjoys playing cards, and is proud of the fact that she doesn't need to wear glasses. Mrs Norman added that Mrs Johannesen was a pretty good card player, and "just quietly, was no pushover". Since becoming a resident of the Biggenden Hospital almost two months ago, Mrs Jo has cross-stitched seven tablecloths. She also enjoys knitting coat hangers.
    Mrs Jo is one of the pioneers of the Uniting Church at Biggenden and relates some stories of the early days when she resided with her parents, Mrs and Mrs Chambers at Woowoonga. She remembers walking to "the opening" just 80 years ago. She said "the Church was crowded and the yard was full of horses". The distance she and her sister and brothers walked to be part of the opening was only five and a half miles. Mrs Jo recalls how the minister, who resided in the vestry at the back of the church in Biggenden, would ride his horse to visit them and be given a cup of tea and fresh bread made in the camp oven. "Stoves were hard to come by in those days" Mrs Jo remembers the times were hard, and when the Minister called asking for a donation Mrs Chambers said " I haven't any money but I will given you this silver dish" which had been a wedding present and much valued. It was used for many years in the Church as a collection plate. "The early church can boast of something that Biggenden today cannot, and that is a choir". Mrs Jo said there were some beautiful singing of the old hymns and the names of those she remembers in the choir were Lawrences, the Griggs, the Triggers and the Northgraves.
    Mrs Jo recalls what she called "The Moonlight Picnics" At these picnics they would play Jolly Miller, Twos and Threes and Drop the Hanky. "Woowoonga people then decided they wanted a church of their own and a committee was formed consisting of Mr CF Stark, Mr SH Chambers, Mrs JFE Voss, Mr FG Reinhardt and Mr JA Douglas. Mrs Stark and Mr Chambers went around in a horse and cart and collected and a church was purchased from Mt Perry and later moved to Woowoonga. This church is the present hall adjacent to the church in Biggenden."

I have been afraid your cousin Charlie and Austin would be called up but up to now they are at home. Well dear Minnie I did not go this Xmas for one thing it is such a long cold journey so I thought all being well I would go at Easter. Of course I heard from them all Auntie Annie Charlie Alice and Baby were all going to Auntie Eliza's so I know they would have a good time of it. I spent a very Happy Christmas with some Friends in Liverpool and I was glad when Xmas came I had decided not to go to B.h.ham for it was a very cold day much colder than last year. Although I should liked to of been there all the same and many a time I thought of Auntie. She is a real good sister and thinks of us all and when we are altogether your farther and all of you are thought of and talked of as well only you are so far away. I have had several letters from your Cousin Annie and she sent me the photos of her 3 children they are fine little kiddies also one of Willies children a nice little girl I think she has such a sweet face. Well you would laugh if you saw your cousin Charlies baby, he is a monster. Your Auntie Annie has him ruined of course you will have heard she reared your cousin Charlie. I was going to put little Charlie of course we used to call him that and even now make a mistake. His baby is called K(R)eith. I bet you have never heard that name before one of Auntie Annies choosing. So we have to say we like that name whether we do or not. I am up and the whole of the time writing this letter so you must please excuse all blunders and mistakes only I though you would like a letter. I have not heard from your Uncle William for a long time so I dont know who he is living with. He sent us all a photo of your Auntie Ellen('s) Stone & we were all pleased with it. I hope you have got your Xmas cards we sent wishing all of you a very happy New year and a safe return for your friends from the war. Love to all and your dear self. Your affect auntie E. C
