There was no talk of drought in Delungra on Melbourne Cup Day with the Bowls Club brimming over with wonderful gifts and food.
The Coasties that Care had donated beautiful gift bags for the ladies and Wendy from Lakeside Fashions at Lake Cathie made sure every lady went home with a gorgeous new piece of fashion.
There were sweeps, Lucky door prizes and raffle and amazing food. Spirits of local residents were raised by the generosity shown around the room and even those who didn't back a winner were smiling.
Around 50 gorgeous cup day cupcakes were donated by Baked by Danelle, who is also from Delungra.
The local baker was more than happy to help out her community and understood the need for events such as these.
For just a few hours, the community had forgotten about the drought.
