Junior Rylstone artist Haidee Burlington was successful in becoming a finalist from nearly 3000 entries in the NSW and ACT Threatened Species Children’s Art Competition.
I chose the Regent Honeyeater because I loved the pattern on its beautiful wings. It makes me feel sad and guilty that these little guys are threatened.Haidee
Haidee came first in the “Unusual Painting Section.” Her work is titled, “The Sun Setting on The Regent Honeyeater”. Haidee said, “I chose the Regent Honeyeater because I loved the pattern on its beautiful wings.
It makes me feel sad and guilty that these little guys are threatened.
I sometimes see them flying around my grandparents place and they are just so sweet.
I'd really like to keep them around for all time.” Finalists will be displayed at the Royal Botanical Gardens Sydney.
Haidee is a year five student at the Rylstone Public School.

With ever increasing stall numbers, the Rylstone markets remain popular.
A good variety of stalls set up last Saturday, from fresh fruit and vegies to hand knitted, one off, garments.
The Rylstone hall also was filled with the great music from local band “Bushrock”.
Legacy Day Activities
Legacy members set up stalls in Kandos and Rylstone. Glen Evans in Kandos and Barbara Eordogh in Rylstone selling badges, bears and most popular pens.
Enthusiastic Year 11 students from Kandos High School happily assisted The Legacy charity.
Long Lunch for Farmers
The Rylstone Olive Press catered for 95 guests for a long lunch. All money raised is for the drought, stricken farmers.
With chefs from Sydney and Kandos High School students helping with serving the food, the lunch was enjoyed in a beautiful setting.
