Happy Birthday Messages!
Happy birthday to the following locals; we hope you enjoy your day!
Kerry Scally - August 29
Shane Hall and Kobie Smith - September 2
Harley Dale - September 3
Lily Hall - September 4
On behalf of the Dare family we would sincerely like to thank the battalion of skilled volunteers over two days of crutching 4700 sheep across the board and through a cradle.
This epic achievement has raised thousands of dollars with 100% of all proceeds of this day based on commercial crouching rates will be forwarded to Megan Henry. To firstly remind her that her community stands with her as she challenges a life changing operation and also to remove some of the financial load of going interstate. There have been many special times in 25 years living in Dumbleyung.....the efforts of Saturday and Monday rank right at the top of that list.
Thank you to each and every person who contributed in any way across many ways on the day and leading up to the days. You are all amazing humans!
Special acknowledgement to:
Dazza Shearing Contractors
Barlow Shearing Contractors
Chris Iles Crutching Cradle
Clem Henry Shearing
And all the dogs!!!!
