Tambo Valley Picnic Races

Lewington House resident, 97 year old Mrs. Connelly enjoyed her recent afternoon out at the Tambo Valley Picnic race meet immensely. Kathleen made acquaintance with a great many race goers and was warmly welcomed with true Tambo Valley hospitality. Fellow resident, Mr John Armit was also in attendance and saw his family connections finish with a third place in the last race.

Mrs. Connelly’s late husband was a busy Sydney bookmaker. The social highlight of her younger years came in attending the Melbourne Cup. She has been to more than a dozen of those but this was her first Tambo Valley Races. Judging by the enjoyment she gained from this afternoon, we expect it won’t be her last. To top of the memorable afternoon, Mrs Connelly backed the winner in the Tambo Valley Cup.
