SA’s centenary babies
LITTLEHAMPTON woman Joylene
Liebelt is gearing up for her eighth
1936s function since the group’s
establishment in the late 1980s.
The 1936s is a group which celebrates
the birthdays of South Australians
born in 1936.
The group gets together every few
years to celebrate milestones – and
2016 marks the year they all turn 80.
Mrs Liebelt founded the 1936s with
her late husband John in 1985.
“We wanted to do something for
people born in 1936 in SA, as it was
the State’s centenary year,” she said.
“We feel we’re a bit special because
that year was really important.”
The first 1936s event was held in
1986 with a dinner dance to mark
SA’s Jubilee year and 2000 people
were in attendance.
With seven 1936s events under
her belt, Mrs Liebelt expects 300
members to gather at the Adelaide
Convention Centre on Wednesday,
October 26, for an afternoon gourmet

Australian Hope International
will join forces with world renowned
Adelaide violinist Niki Vasilakis this
month to give disadvantaged girls a
second chance at life.
Ms Vasilakis will launch her album
Sacred at a concert held at Immanuel
College in Adelaide, with all
proceeds going towards the House of
Hope in Uganda.
The House of Hope was established
by Nairne residents Bill and Norma
Osborne, who founded Australian
Hope International, as a safe house
for vulnerable girls, many of whom
have been rescued from prostitution.
Proceeds from the concert will go
towards the purchase of a rainwater
tank and solar pressure pump system
to provide clean water to the girls
living at House of Hope and towards
training in skills such as tailoring,
baking and bead making, to help
them become self-sustainable.
The concert will be held at Immanuel
College Chapel, 32 Morphett
Road, Novar Gardens, on Saturday,
August 20, at 2pm.
Tickets are $25 each and can be
purchased at the door, at Nairne’s
Jambo Sana store or online at www.
