THE skyline at Lockhart will never be the same again after the painting of the town’s water tower.
The water above all project can only be described as a success. The colours and water theme on the tower look amazing and it was heartening to watch the artwork take shape.
Many people in the community captured images and posted them on social media to show the work as it progressed along the way. Not only is the artwork something for locals to enjoy it will also help to attract tourism interest to the eastern Riverina.
THERE is a saying that the Melbourne Cup is the most difficult race to bet on. The same could be said for the Wagga By-Election. It was an event that was thrown on the community and it was too difficult to call from start to end.
One thing is for sure that the polling booth at The Rock certainly drew in some good crowds and kudos goes to the people who ran the cake stall outside the FoodWorks store.
From perfectly baked sponges to biscuits and slices the cooking would have won awards at any country show.
SPEAKING of country shows there are a few coming up in this region.
Lockhart Show is on September, 23, Culcairn Show is on September, 29 and Walbundrie Show is on October, 1.
Not only will Walbundrie host a fantastic country show the town is also the place where the Hume League grand finals will take place on September 22.
GUEST speaker Sam Bailey gave people plenty to think about during the NSW Farmers mental health forum in Wagga.
The forum attracted people from this region and Mr Bailey, a farmer and quadriplegic, told the story about how his life changed forever following a car accident when he was 19. His message of courage and resilience was one to cherish.
