Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Russell turns 60

- By Zoe McMaugh

Russell Jordan chose the Deniliquin Boat Club as the venue for his 60th birthday celebratio­ns on Saturday.

While the rain prevented the group from enjoying the deck and sprawling lawns, the 50 or so guests still had a great time.

Friends and family came from the local area, and from Melbourne, Cootamundr­a, Scone, Ballarat and Yea to attend.

Held on his actual birthday, Russell had to wait until the evening for his birthday present.

He was gifted a Bathurst Hot Lap by his family.
