Stawell's breakfast scoop - May 12

WEATHER:

Morning Stawell - a bit fresh so far, but the gurus at the weather bureau say it could even nudge 18 degrees today. It will be partly cloudy, with areas of morning fog. Winds east to southeasterly and light becoming northeasterly early in the morning.

TOP STORIES:

Stawell joined cities and country towns from across Australia on Sunday when it hosted its first ever Mother's Day Classic in the form of a run, walk or stroll.

All proceeds from the Mother's Day Classic are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a not for profit organisation that promotes and supports research into breast cancer prevention and treatment.

Three million dollars in funding will help ensure visitor sites and environmental works at the Grampians are restored to their former glory after January's devastating bushfires.

Thousands of people attended this year's Grampians Grape Escape food and wine festival at Halls Gap.

The 2014 Grampians Grape Escape attracted record crowds to Halls Gap for wine tasting, food sampling, live entertainment and kids entertainment, surrounded by the spectacular Grampians National Park.

Victoria's longest running food and wine festival, was officially opened by Premier, Denis Napthine.

Adoptable Stawell was pleased with the turnout at the grand opening of the catnip cage.

Community members used the launch to meet some of the cats, kittens and dogs that are currently available for adoption.
