Today, Wednesday 9th May, family and friends recognised the closing of an era with the laying to rest of the last of the four Founding Members of the Toodyay Naturalists' Club, Mrs Ray Paynter, who passed away on the 1st of May .

Ray's ability to negotiate and mentor leaders in the community - farmers, politicians, local government councilors, mining companies, a local wildflower society and members of various community groups, to which she belonged, was well-known and appreciated.
Goodbye, Ray. Rest in Peace.
