CBD alive with election buzz

Best dressed couple for the night was Rovers president John Glowrey and his wife Alex Glowrey.

You may have noticed a few more people around town on Saturday, with the election buzz in the air.

Local cafes and shops had a constant flow of customers, who after voting decided to go grab a coffee or do some shopping.

While some may see election day as a bit of a drag, it was lovely to see people out and about taking advantage of the beautiful day.

Biggest Morning Tea success

$633.90 was raised at the Biggest Morning Tea hosted by the Edward River Library and the Deniliquin Genealogy Society on Saturday.

The money raised will be donated to Cancer Council Australia, to raise much needed funds that go towards vital cancer research, support services, prevention programs and advocacy.

The Edward River Library thanked all of those who attended the morning tea, and the local businesses that donated prizes for the raffle, including Central IGA, Josh’s Bakehouse, Central Cellarbrations, Betta Home Living and Eric Sim Pharmacy.

Mexican night at Deni Rovers

Deniliquin Rovers Football Netball Club held a Mexican themed fiesta on Saturday night in the Rovers clubrooms.

There were crazy costumes, decorations, all you can eat tacos, nachos, burritos, guacamole and jalapeño poppers up for grabs, as well as some delicious drinks to wash it all down.

Everyone got dressed up, with varying levels of effort being put into the costumes, but there could only be a few winners.

Best costume winners were Natalie Sampson, Vicki Beames and Shannon Bulmer.

A special mention to best dressed couple John and Alex Glowrey and Nikita Doyle.
