DOROTHY Gosling, of  Nhill, travelled to Rainbow  with her daughter Wendy  Sherwell on May 18. She met up with Marge Wallis and Frank and Hammie Orriss at Yurunga for a chat about the many years they shared restoring Yurunga and fundraising.

Dorothy and Marge were present at a meeting of the Rainbow Historical Society in August 1969, when the Society became the first Yurunga Committee of Management. Their stories were caught on film by Lynne McKenzie as part of a current film project for the Yurunga Committee.

Dorothy kindly donated her doll to Yurunga. Dolly was given to her when she was eight years old; Dorothy is now in her 90’s. Dorothy knitted Dolly’s outfit, which is a copy of the
original pattern and colours.
