It was a day full of entertainment on Sunday afternoon when the Deniliquin Historical Society held Music at the Museum.
About 120 people attended the fundraiser, with the proceeds being used to buy two split system air conditioners for the Macauley St museum.
The main attraction was the Deniliquin Municipal Band and Deniliquin Sing Australia Choir, however guests could also peruse items of local history housed inside the museum, which was the former Police Inspector’s residence.
Deniliquin Historical Society vice president Lindsay Renwick said the day raised about $800, which he said was ‘‘a terrific effort’’.
‘‘The split systems are expected to cost about $5000,’’ Mr Renwick said.
‘‘We received a generous donation from the Deniliquin RSL Club of $1500 and we’ll fund the rest ourselves.
‘‘The day was also a chance to showcase our new verandah which is with thanks to funding from Member for Murray-Darling John Williams.
‘‘Sunday was definitely a success.
‘‘The band put free entertainment on to assist us and so did Sing Australia Choir, and we thank them for doing so.’’
