RFS coming to Lions Club Market

UPDATE: The RFS will now be at the Truck Show on September 8 instead of the market.

The local Rural Fire Service (RFS) will be operating a stall at the next Lions Club Market which will be held on August 25 at Waring Gardens.

It is all part of the RFS’s ‘Get Ready Weekend’ and they will have a fire truck there but that’s not all that will be there as there is face painting, a sausage sizzle, a raffle, packs that will help families prepare for the fire season and goodies for the kids.

Buy a Bale will be benefiting from the proceeds so make sure you get something to eat and buy a raffle ticket or two.

We hope that the weather will be good on the 25th and also hope that everyone will have a great time at the market and at the stall.

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.
