There was plenty going on in Benalla 25 years ago.
Bettabooks in Carrier St was advertising a fantastic christmas computer deal with a ‘‘super-fast’’ 386 PC featuring 4mb ram, a mouse, windows 3.1 and a massive 105mb hard disk.
All for the same price as some of the cars advertised in this week’s classifieds, $2499.
A fashion extravaganza is to be held at the Benalla Secondary College on Friday, December 4.
Leading fashion designer, John Claringbold, who was educated in Benalla, will be judging.
Students will also be judged by Lee DeFazio from the Wangaratta Dance Academy who will be assessing their choreography skills.
The major awards for the evening include a sewing machine, the Susan Johnston Modelling Award and a years 7 to 10 award, both valued at $100.
