The menu included a blue-topped jelly slice (instead of the traditional red) in recognition of Tony Abbott’s political party. But those there say it’s the homemade rocky road that he loved the most.
He, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce and Member for Wannon Dan Tehan were at the Woolsthorpe dairy farm of Glenn and Dairyfarmer Victoria vice president Roma Britnell on Saturday morning to launch the Federal Government's Agriculture White Paper. More than 100 people attended the event which was held in a calf shed.
In true country style, our Woolsthorpe Auxiliary put on the most amazing spread. Catering for on-farm events (cattle sales, in particular) is their biggest fundraising activity. It led to an unheard of $20,438 donation to our Warrnambool Base Hospital medical equipment appeal last year. This year they’re expecting to make even more.
Saturday’s effort raised $1,500.
