Power loss – July 17 2018

July 17 2018

The winds rose around town at around 4pm with gusts reaching 70km/h and by 4:19pm it was lights out for 1153 power customers.

After news was posted, our FB page was swamped with comments as word of developments was passed around.

Power was restored to all but 350 customers by around 5:19pm and the remaining 350 waited patiently for their power to return.

By around 5:50pm the Essential Energy power map gave an ETA of power restoration of 6pm.

At 6pm the remaining 350 started to get their power back on and life started to return to normal, right in time for everyone to enjoy dinner.

1980’s Deni RSL Coasters

July 8 2018

Those who like to collect Coasters can grab 17 Deniliquin RSL coasters for $12 (including P&H).

The 17 appear to be from throughout the 1980’s and we purchased one of the sets to scan ten of them so you can see them in detail.

The best ones to us are the Christmas ones though the Bicentennial one was pretty nicely designed.

As mentioned earlier, these and others can be grabbed for $12 all up but keep your eyes out as you could see them without a buy it now price and may win an auction at $6 including P&H.

We hope that you enjoy what you see below.

Vinnies NSW Community Sleepout – June 21

June 19 2018

A major fundraising effort is underway for the Vinnies NSW Community Sleepout.

Around 22 locals and businesses will be sleeping in Cressy Street on a predicted 2 degree night to raise the awareness for homelessness particularly in rural areas.

So far $7,864 has been raised online leaving $2,136 to before reaching their target of $10,000.

This fundraising effort again demonstrates Deniliquin’s willingness to donate their time and money to causes that will do good for the people around them.

Who wants Krispy Kreme?

June 13 2018

The title is not a joke, there will be some Krispy Kreme donuts to be eaten in Deniliquin on August 4 but only if you order them first.

Deni Theatre Company is doing a fundraiser because they need props, costumes and other items for their production of Alice in Wonderland and so they have chosen selling Krispy Kreme donuts as their method of raising funds.

If you want a dozen original glazed donuts it will cost you $20 but if you want the Fundraiser Assorted pack containing six Original glazed, two Choc Iced, two Strawberry Iced and two Choc Donuts with Sprinkles and it will cost you $24 (take exact change with you when ordering).

To place your order, please see Anthony Myatt at Imperative Apps located at 208 Cressy Street by July 20 and bring your money with you.

Imperative Apps is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5:30pm so there is plenty of time to see them.

As mentioned earlier the donuts will be available for pick up on August 4 and will be at the Basketball Stadium (why the Stadium will be revealed later).

Further details can be seen on the Deni Theatre Company Facebook page (link will take you to the post).

Deni Big Freeze a success

June 10 2018

A cold and foggy morning did not stop the Deni Big Freeze from taking place at McLean’s Beach.

Just over a dozen people many of them in summer gear lined up to simultaneously run into the Edward River in support of efforts to cure MND (Motor Neuron Disease).

Many more locals watched the event take place despite the cold and foggy conditions, ironically the water was warmer than what it was out of the water.

For those who missed out on seeing the moment live, fear not as the video of the moment is available on the Facebook event page.

Team Uncle Bob’s online fundraising total for Daniher’s Drive – Tour for a Cure has reached $7,284 whilst more money has been raised offline once again showing that Deniliquin is a caring town when it comes to fundraising for good causes.

The drive isn’t until October 11 so there is plenty of time for locals to still contribute and help researchers continue to attempt to end MND as a quality of life draining and life taking disease.
