This smart look­ing group of Deni blokes was pic­tured on Satur­day in Ox­ford, Mis­sis­sippi USA.

They were all orig­i­nally school­mates in De­niliquin and were among more than 30 Aussies who trav­elled to the States for the wed­ding of Matthew Baker and Tyler Rus­sell.

Matt’s for­mer pri­mary school mate, Sam Tasker, was best man and among the grooms­men was An­drew Ho­gan.

Matthew, the son of Garry and Pat Baker, at­tended De­niliquin South School and High School.

He stud­ied in the US and Syd­ney and now works as a lawyer in Syd­ney.

A full wed­ding re­port will be in a com­ing edi­tion.

The class of 1968, half a cen­tury on...

Happy Hal­loween

The De­niliquin Chil­dren’s Cen­tre is get­ting into the Hal­loween spirit this week with car­ers Mel Penglis and Donna Crane dress­ing up for the oc­ca­sion.

Walk­ing from the chil­dren’s cen­tre through the main street for an ex­cur­sion to Yarkuwa In­dige­nous Knowl­edge Cen­tre this week, the group were spot­ted wear­ing some funny cos­tumes.

Part of their cos­tume week, Mrs Penglis said it gave the chil­dren a chance to have some fun get­ting dressed up.

‘‘In light of Hal­loween we are try­ing to be in­clu­sive of chil­drens’ in­ter­ests, as they see what’s hap­pen­ing in the com­mu­nity around them.

‘‘All through­out the week our stu­dents are en­cour­aged to come dressed up or they can have some fun get­ting dressed up in our cos­tumes sup­plied at the cen­tre.’’
