Octogenarian Honoured at Orara

Coffs Harbour and District Advocate 6th February 1951

Mr George Hoschke, who attained his 80th birthday this weekend, was tendered a surprise birthday party at the home of his son Mr Norman Hoschke. The guest of honour was toasted in a fitting manner and enjoyed the presence of as many of his relatives could be there.

Pride of place on the tables was given to a large birthday cake decorated and illuminated with 80 candles. Friends of Mr Hoschke will be pleased to know that he is at present still enjoying reasonably good health and still enjoys doing an odd job around the farm.

Obviously moved by the gesture of the members of his family and relatives, Mr Hoschke thanked them one and all and said that he greatly appreciated the thoughtful action of arranging the function in his honour. He would treasure the wishes for his birthday. The many friends of Mr Hoschke will also join with the members of his family in wishing him many happy returns.

Coming to Orara as a youth Mr George Hoschke lived practically all his life on the farm where he is now residing with his son Jack. Keenly interested through the passing years in all matters affecting the welfare of Upper Orara Mr Hoschke will be remembered for his splendid record of work with the Coffs Harbour – Orara Dairy Society of which he was a foundation Director when the factory was at Coramba. He remained a director until the Society disposed of it’s interests to Cow & Gate Ltd.

Another activity which was very dear to him was the work of the Parents and Citizen’s Association of which he was for many years secretary.

A worthy pioneer is Mr Hoschke and he can relate many interesting and exciting incidents in the early days of the district. In fact at the moment, he is the oldest pioneer resident still residing in the district. Finally we would like also to convey to Mr Hoschke the best wishes for many happy returns of his birthday anniversary.

George married Elizabeth AITCHISON in 1911 in QLD, Australia.   They had three children: John William, Norman Frank, and Collin James Black.
