Good people RRT

I was very fortunate to be given a Cookie the Kookaburra when the RRT visited us at Lucindale SA earlier this year after the fires. They were a wonderful support to the farmers and everyone involved in helping with the recovery. Cookie now travels with me everywhere in my vehicle. Mary
