Thanks to Jim Martin who helped me move a couple of ton of super down town to the bulk spreader who will spread it out prior to the next major rain event.
Big weekend this weekend with wedding bells ringing in the O’Donohue household. All the best to proud parents Denise and Fox, have a wonderful weekend.
Great win by our ladies last Friday to win the NE Bushrangers trophy - Marnie Broz, Kerry Newton, Liz Orton, Faye McLees, Ann Hazeldine & Heather Street, this is the first time Myrtleford have won the trophy. They defeated Jubilee at Mansfield and I believe that they celebrated in style last Friday evening.
