Staff at Deniliquin’s Salvation Army Store in Edwardes St said a fond farewell to long-time volunteer Val Cugley last Thursday.
Mrs Cugley and her husband Ron are retiring to Yarrawonga after living in Deniliquin for 34 years.
The couple first came to Deniliquin for 12 months but decided to stay.
‘‘I worked in the deli at IGA for 12 years until I retired 18 months ago,’’ Mrs Cugley said.
‘‘I’ve also volunteered at the Salvation Army for the past 10 years.
‘‘Ron was a kangaroo shooter and retired five or six years ago.’’
To send Mrs Cugley off on a nice note, volunteers at the Salvation Army put on a morning tea which featured a delectable array of cakes and slices.
Salvation Army Store manager Marcia Kennedy said it was sad to see Mrs Cugley go.
‘‘Val has been a great help for 10 years.
‘‘I’d like to thank her for her service on behalf of Salvation Army Captains Patricia and David Day.’’
