Lashbrooks win rice industry award
A big congratulations to rice industry award recipients David and Nancy Lashbrook.
Their 2022 Langi crop won the Port of Melbourne highest long grain yield for producing 12.28T/ha of Langi on 24.2ha. Their award was presented at a rice conference last week in Yarrawonga. These results were no accident, as they were achieved by outstanding managers who sowed on time and did everything right to pull off a great yield.

A lovely luncheon was had by the Coleambally Garden Club on August 6, at the Punt Hotel, Darlington Point. Lunch consisted of a winter warming chicken and corn soup with a generous serving of bread to soak it all up with.
We had planned to take a walk around the newly renovated park alongside the river, however the weather was not on our side. The rain hindered our chance for a leisurely stroll after lunch.

It is the 48th annual Narrandera Camellia Show and will be held at the Ex-Servicemen's Club auditorium, Bolton St, Narrandera, this Friday and Saturday.
