Interesting and enjoyable District Conference in Cooma
The District Conference in Cooma over the weekend went very well, with lots of great presentations from very talented, passionate people; great entertainment and camaraderie. Some opportunities for us, I believe, for more visibility in the local community. Along with representatives from Gerringong Sunrise, we presented the first batch of ‘cards’ to the NSW Rural Financial Counselling Service for distribution to the needy farmers.
